Speak to a Physician Online
In an effort to provide the best care possible during the emergence of the COVID-19 healthcare crisis, we are expanding the availability of our physicians through telemedicine. Since we are only permitted to treat urgent and emergency eye care at this time in our clinic, we want to make sure our eye care expertise is readily available from the comfort of your home. We are able to utilize this as a triage option to determine if a patient’s issue is time sensitive and would require an in-office visit. Telemedicine is a modified provision of a traditional clinical service where a patient can speak to a physician via a live video chat through a desktop, laptop or mobile device.
Telemedicine minimizes the risk of COVID-19 exposure for you and your family. We are able to offer this experience to both new and existing patients that may need to be screened for any ocular emergencies prior to traveling to our clinic for treatment. These pathways improve access by extending the reach of medical eye care services, improve clinical outcomes by providing care in a timely fashion, and enhance patient satisfaction by providing care in a setting and at a time convenient for the patient.
During a telemedicine examination we will take a detailed clinical history and review of systems, conduct and transmit the telemedicine for ophthalmology examination and organize appropriate follow-up care.
