Booking a Phone/Video Appointment

Our doctors are pleased to offer our patients convenient telephone or video appointments during regular office hours. Please note you DO need to either phone or use our new online booking app(COMING SOON!) to book your appointment. Video consultations are powered by doxy.me, a company that is committed to complete privacy and confidentiality between physicians and their patients.

Our regular no show fee  applies to missed phone or video appointments. If you have scheduled a phone appointment please ensure we have the correct number at which to reach you. If you have scheduled a video appointment and are having trouble logging in on your browser, please call the clinic for assistance at the time of the appointment.

Similar to in-person visits at the clinic, physicians can run behind helping other patients, please be patient if you have to wait a few minutes for your virtual visit. 

Check-in below for video appointments. Links for video appointments will no longer be emailed to you.

Please note that not all visits are well suited for a virtual appointment. Our staff,  in conjunction with your physician, will schedule in-person visits for: concerns requiring a physical examination; prenatal care; newborn and well child examinations; and emergencies or serious health concerns
