Telehealth Services 

Amid the growing concerns about Coronavirus COVID-19, your health, as well as the health of our providers and staff, is important to us. We are open and currently seeing ALL patients through virtual care (telehealth) instead of physically in our offices. We appreciate your patience during this transition. We are here for you and you will continue to receive quality services.

This is effective March 27, 2020 to May 1, 2020. This date is subject to change, so please come back to our website to see updates on how long telehealth visits will be offerred. (last updated 4/2/2020)

With virtual care, you will be able to connect to a professional through a live video connection using your smartphone, tablet or pc with camera and microphone. This is available for all patients until further notice.

If you are a new patient for a first visit, please follow these required checklist of items we need BEFORE your first appointment dateYou can do this by fax (941) 488-5554 or mail it to us in time in order for us to receive it before your appointment date.

  2. Copy of your primary insurance card (front and back); If you have a secondary insurance plan, we will need a front and back copy as well.

Instructions on how this telehealth works:

1.) You will receive a text message from your provider. This text message will have a link. Click on the link which then opens a window in your mobile phone internet browser. (Note: if you do not have a mobile phone or text capability, then an email will be sent to you with the link).

2) Within a few seconds after you click on the link, the provider will see that you are 'online' and will initiate the call to you. You will be prompted to accept or reject a call. Press 'ACCEPT'.

3) A second prompt pop-up will come up asking to allow your microphone and camera. Press 'ALLOW'.

4) You then should see and hear your provider and vice-versa. If you have issues with audio, check your audio volume and make sure the microphone is not muted.
