Established Patients of PrimaryPlus NOW have access to TeleHealth appointments for many of their care needs through a safe, secure outlet called Updox. Social distancing is so important during this time of the Coronavirus outbreak and through TeleHealth visits, we are able to address many of your health needs virtually, in the comfort of your own home. Some of those visit types include (but not limited to) follow up care, some well visits, medication issues, lab and test results, general health questions, counseling appointments, some dermatology visits, etc.
Not all appointment types qualify for TeleHealth services. For those that do not qualify for TeleHealth, please know we are taking all necessary precautions for infection control and social distancing for those appointments that still need to be seen in the office. The health and safety of our patients, staff and community is OUR PRIORITY!
Here is How TeleHealth WORKS:
1) Patients can contact their local PrimaryPlus office to see if his/her visit qualifies for a TeleHealth appointment. Please make sure our front desk staff have the correct CELL PHONE NUMBER AND/OR EMAIL ADDRESS on file for a TeleHealth visit to be able to take place.

2) If one of the correct devices (listed above) are available, patient will be given an appointment time.
