In order to continue to provide healthcare services to our patients, we have added telehealth visits as an option to keep patients safe and healthy. Each telehealth visit is conducted by our providers.
In order to use Telehealth, you can can access through our patient portal, however, you do NOT have to use the patient portal, there are other methods available.
Please check with your insurance company for specific details regarding Telehealth coverage.
We can see you via telehealth for the following health conditions:
New patient appointments
Cardiovascular follow-up appointments
Chronic condition follow-ups (blood pressure, diabetes, depression, anxiety, migraines, etc.)
Rash and/or skin conditions
Weight loss follow-ups
We CANNOT facilitate telehealth visits for physicals or well woman exams.
Scheduling a Virtual Telehealth Visit
Call us at 785-539-8700 (Primary & Wound Care) / 785-539-4644 (Heart & Vascular Clinics) to schedule a telehealth visit if the reason for your appointment follows the guidelines above. We will verify that you have the technology available to facilitate a telehealth visit.
Your telehealth visit can be completed online through a web browser on a computer or mobile device, or through the Healow app (download here).
When we schedule your appointment, please plan to login to the appointment 5-10 minutes early to answer some screening questions, such as your current vitals, and to ensure your Internet connection quality is adequate for the visit. When you have completed this, you will wait for your provider to join the visit with you (much like waiting in a virtual exam room).
Telehealth requires patients to have an adequate Internet connection to facilitate a video conference call.
For each telehealth appointment, make sure that you have your most recent information about your vitals. Vitals such as the most recent blood pressure, weight, heart rate, and temperature are ready for your provider.
