Telemedicine Visits

Due to the concern over the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and for the safety of our patients and employees, our office is utilizing Telemedicine visits. This limits the exposure to our high risk patients with diabetes and autoimmune disorders within a busy clinic. We are providing lab onsite and downloads from diabetes devices if it cannot be done from your home. Call us when you arrive.

You have two options:
1. You will receive a text or email with a link to our telehealth service if you have a computer/tablet/smartphone with video and audio capabilities.

2. If you do not have these capabilities we will conduct the visit by telephone.
