Live Video Medical Visits
Social distancing is critical at this time to slow the spread of COVID-19 so we are now encouraging and offering Tele-Medicine appointments to our patients from the comfort of your own home! We can order tests, X-ray, and prescribe medicines all remotely.
First schedule a Tele-Medicine visit with Hearthside medicine family care.
A patient portal is required for Tele-Medicine visits so please set this up ahead of time.
When your appointment has been scheduled you will receive an email with a link to start your appointment.
Make sure to do your previsit questionnaires if any have been assigned to you ahead of time. These are available to you in your portal. (New patients have in depth reviews so give yourself 30 minutes)
Then follow the instructions below 15 minutes before your appointment time.
