Telemedicine Appointments

Stay home -but stay connected and well.

Telemedicine virtual appointments are offered for current and new patients and offer the same high quality care as an in-office appointment. We are able to provide continuity of care to current patients as well as assess new medical patients from the comfort of home through this online tool.

How does Telemedicine work?

Schedule your appointment 

Call 202-237-7000 to schedule and request a telemedicine appointment. The coordinator will email you a link to use for your online telemedicine appointment with the doctor.

 

Day of the Appointment

We use Doxy.me, a HIPAA-compliant secure platform which protects your privacy. There is no need to download any software prior to the appointment – just click on the link at the scheduled appointment time.

You can use a smartphone or tablet with camera and microphone, but we recommend a computer for the highest quality. Recommended web browsers are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Check your audio and video settings before your appointment, and have a good internet connection.

After Your Appointment

Once complete, the services rendered during your telemedicine visit will be coded appropriately and insurance claim forms will be mailed to you for submission to your insurance company for reimbursement.
