All of the hospital's specialty clinics and many affiliated physician practices are now offering telehealth visits for appointments and evaluations. Telehealth allows you to use your computer or smart phone for two-way video conferencing. Please contact your health insurer to see if they cover telehealth services.

Patients should be referred to the specialty clinics by their Primary Care Physicians. When scheduling the visit, the clinician will determine if a telehealth visit is appropriate.
