Telemedicine is defined as the practice of using technology to deliver medical from a distance, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. Patients can connect to providers through a dedicated portal, with an internet connection and computer with audio/video capabilities. Our provider team can then provider a variety of urgent care services, treatment recommendations, and other crucial services through digital means.
