Virtual Visits

Virtual-Visits

You might have heard of telehealth or telemedicine appointments. Well, Virtual Visits are just like that – during a Virtual Visit, you will have your appointment with your Greater Family Health provider over a video chat system while you remain at home. We have provided Virtual Visits for psychiatry patients for years. Now, we are expanding Virtual Visits to our medical and general behavioral health patients as well. Please note, if you are a new patient, you cannot be seen by a practitioner through a Virtual Visit.

To schedule a virtual visit, call 844-599-3700. When you call for an appointment, our Phone Operators will let you know if your appointment can be done through a Virtual Visit or if you will be asked to schedule a face-to-face visit at one of our locations.

To participate in a Virtual Visit, you will need either a computer, a tablet or a phone (iPhone or Android). Once your visit is scheduled, you will receive an email with instructions on how to prepare your device for the Virtual Visit. For your first Virtual Visit, you should sign in 10 minutes early to test the audio and video on your device. If you are not signed into your appointment at least 5 minutes after your appointment is scheduled to begin, you will forfeit your appointment slot.
