Virtual Visits allow you to connect with your doctor from the comfort and safety of your own home. They are available for all ages. We will offer you the same high level of expert, compassionate care that you expect in an office visit. More and more people are scheduling virtual doctor’s appointments in order to avoid unnecessary exposure to COVID-19. Telemedicine is a critical way to keep up with your medical care during this crisis but will also be a key tool going forward even after the coronavirus subsides.
Our team is here to support you through the entire process.
Make your appointment today: Contact us at 201-569-4445 and leave a message with your name and contact number and someone will return your call promptly. A staff member will walk you through the easy setup.
