Virtual Visits with Your Doctor

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

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.
