During the novel Coronavirus emergency, telemedicine services are now covered by most health plans for both new and established patients.
Scheduling a telemedicine appointment can be done just like any other appointment: 1) filling out the appointment request form on the practice website, 2) requesting an appointment through the ZocDoc smartphone app, 3) requesting an appointment through the office’s patient portal at www.MyPatientVisit.com, or 4) by calling the office at 305-670-0146.
On the day of the telemedicine appointment, patients will be called and then sent an e-mail with a link that will take them to the telemedicine internet portal. They will be prompted to enter their name to sign in, and then will wait for the doctor to sign in. The virtual visit is a synchronous audio/visual interface where the provider and patient can communicate real-time.
