VIRTUAL VISITS Now Offered!
Call office 314-707-8319 for details or
to schedule a virtual or physical visit.
We are now doing virtual office visits, also called telemedicine visits.
These can be “audio only” over any phone or “audiovisual” using any smart phone, laptop, or other computer with a camera. Most laptops have a built-in camera as do some desktop computer monitors. We use a secure HIPPA compliant system called “doxy.me”.
As far as Insurance companies and Medicare, they are supporting these visits and they are covered.
The routine virtual office visits last 30 minutes and I having been trying them out since mid-April. They appear to be working out well both for patients and doctor. I saw my own primary care doctor recently using her virtual visit system and found it highly effective. Plus, I did not have to drive down to her office, find a parking place or sit in a waiting room. Best of all I did not have to get dressed up!
Doing our virtual visits is quite simple:
1. Call our office at 314-707-8319 and schedule an appointment time.
2. We will then either text or email you a link to our virtual office or schedule a phone call visit if you do not text or if you use a hard-wired home phone.
3. When it is time for your visit, you click on the link and are taken to our virtual waiting room. There is almost no waiting time. I will see you that you are in the waiting room and let you into the “visit” room.
