Telehealth and E-Visits
Offering Telehealth and E-Visits to our patients, their family members and friends!
What are Telehealth and E-visits?
This is a convenient service for people in our communities who are unable or unwilling to physically attend physical therapy visits, wellness visits, or physical therapy consultations outside of their home or work.
- Are you in need of physical therapy but your doctor mandated that you stay home for your own health and safety?
- Are you an elderly client and afraid to leave your home?
- Do you have a compromised immune system?
- Are you a parent who has children home from school and either you OR your child are in need of physical therapy?
- Do you struggle with time constraints due to a busy life?
- Do you have difficulties/challenges leaving your home?
- Do you live in a rural setting?
Is transportation unavailable for you to get to the physical therapy clinic?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then Telehealth and E-Visits are perfect for you.
All you need is a computer with a camera (desktop, laptop, tablet, phone) and an internet connection. Don’t have a computer? No Problem. Do you have a cellphone? Great, that will work too!
