Telehealth lets you see a specialist or other health care professional who is out of your area without having to travel to their office. You see, hear and talk to the specialist using a special camera, computer screen and other equipment. The specialist can also see, hear and talk to you. This is very helpful when you need to see a doctor who may be located hours away from your home.

Patients and doctors around the world are using telehealth to make sure patients get the care they need without the time, cost and stress of traveling to an appointment far away.

Telehealth Brings the Doctor to You

A telehealth visit is very much like a regular face-to-face visit with a doctor, except that you are communicating with each other through interactive video technology. Your appointment will be in a private exam room. A telehealth coordinator will be with you to operate the equipment, introduce you to the specialist and assist with your examination.
