Sam Rodgers implemented our telehealth services during the COVID-19 pandemic to allow our patients to receive care and connect with our services from their homes. Telehealth allows us to keep you safe but still connect for the care you need. We will continue to have this technology available to you even after the pandemic since it can be used for a wide range of health situations. Please note: There are still circumstances where an in-office visit is needed.
Health care services provided via phone, tablet, or computer to connect patients and their healthcare providers.

We use a technology called Doxy.Me for our telehealth services. The links below may help you navigate the process if your provider wants to do a telehealth visit with you.
