Pima Heart and Vascular now offers Telehealth services, so you can meet with your provider from the comfort and safety of home.
What is telehealth?
Telehealth or telemedicine is a virtual visit with your medical provider that you do using your smartphone, tablet or computer. If you have this and a reliable wireless internet connection, you can have a telemedicine appointment!
How does it work?
Using your smartphone, tablet, or computer, your telemedicine appointment will require access to your device speakers and camera so that the doctor can see you.
If you have the appropriate technology, we will provide you with a link specific to your doctor that allows you to access their “virtual waiting room.”
The MA and doctor will join you in this room when they are ready to start your appointment.
Once they join, you can both see and speak to each other by video.
