Community of Hope now offers Telehealth!
We are now offering virtual visits with your provider from the safety and comfort of your home. Virtual care is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as a way to safely receive medical care and advice from your trusted health care provider for certain issues.
Telehealth: Community of Hope now offers convenient telehealth visits with your provider either over the phone or by video. This visit is like a regular in office visit where you will have the opportunity to discuss your medical concerns with your provider. COH will handle certain visits by telehealth. Some examples include: follow up for your chronic disease visit, check up on medications and prompt care visits. Prompt care visits will be scheduled on the same or next day that you call and will address problems such as cold and flu symptoms, allergies, sore throat, rash or hives, nausea, headaches, known urinary tract infection, known yeast infection, constipation. We will not do a video visit if you are having severe symptoms.
Please be prepared for your visit by being in a quiet and private place prepared to talk with your provider at the start of your appointment time. If you are unable to be in a safe quiet place during your visit your appointment may not be able to take place. The visit may last 30 minutes.
A link for the video appointment will be sent to you via text or email, depending on the preferences you have indicated. Please make sure:
- We have a good email on file for you
- We have your correct cell phone number
We can include video if you have a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a camera and microphone. If you do not have any of these or don’t prefer a video appointment, we will call you by phone.
If we schedule you for a video telehealth visit, a text will be sent shortly before the visit with a link to Doxy.me to start the visit. You should join the visit by clicking the link. Please let us know if you need to cancel ahead of time just like a regular appointment. This visit will be billed just like a regular appointment.
