Virtual Visits

Marshall Medical Center is now offering virtual visits with doctors through both telephone and video chat, making it easier for people to access care during the pandemic.

A video visit allows patients to meet with their primary or specialty care provider through a secure, privacy-compliant video chat, from the convenience and security of their own home. Video visits require a device with a camera, speakers and microphone, and a strong internet connection.

During both a telephone and video visit, providers can conduct a routine appointment, prescribe medications, coordinate additional treatment options, and assess whether further care is needed. Virtual visits can be suitable as a follow-up visit for an acute condition, medication management for chronic conditions, reviewing test results, and other types of visits where a close physical examination is not needed.

Telephone visits are available at all Marshall clinics. Video visits are available at most Marshall offices and access is rapidly being expanded. Call your provider to see if virtual visits are available in their clinic and appropriate for your condition.
