Telemedicine From Scotch Institute of ENT
We can now offer you a telemedicine option so you can visit with our providers from the comfort of your home!
What is Telemedicine/Telehealth?
A virtual or online visit with your doctor or nurse from anywhere! You both connect at your appointment time and can speak face to face with each other through both audio and video channels.
What do I need for my visit?
You will need either a computer with a web camera and speakers, or a smart phone. You will also need internet connection.
Please sign the telemedicine consent form and return to us.
If you are a new patient, we will need additional information from you. Please fill out the new patient registration and medical history documents on the forms page.
No need to download software or create an account. Just click on the link below.
Will my insurance pay for this?
Most plans will cover a telehealth visit but it is best you check with your plan to be sure. Medicare and many other plans are covering telemedicine visits during the COVID-19 outbreak. We can offer you a self pay rate for the visit if you do not have coverage through insurance.
