Home Video Visits – Now Available

We are pleased to offer home video visits as an option to see your doctor or healthcare team. Also called “e-visits”, they are like regular appointments, but instead of visiting in-person, you connect with your doctor or healthcare team using your computer or mobile device.  This may be an option for you if travelling to the clinic is inconvenient. If you are interested, talk to your doctor or another member of your healthcare team to see if e-visits would be an option for you.
