Televisits: A Safe, Convenient Alternative




A lot has changed in the past year. These days it seems that more and more people are going “remote”. Many employees are working from home. Videoconferencing has replaced the ubiquitous in-person business meeting. New love fervently blossoms via video dating services. Even family get-togethers are being celebrated over Zoom calls.


In addition to the normal difficulties regarding personal mobility sometimes associated with pregnancy, Women’s Health Consultants recognizes the added risks tied to travel to-and-from and other public interaction associated with in-person office visits during the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, we encourage our patients to take advantage of our Televisits service. Televisits provide a safe, convenient, and secure way for you to connect to your doctor remotely, via video and audio connection on either your smartphone or your computer.


Of course, many times there is no substitute for an in-person visit with your WHC physician, nurse practitioner, or other health provider. In these cases, we have put protocols and procedures in place to ensure that you have a convenient and safe visit with us. In certain situations though, e.g., some medical consultations, review of certain test results, general questions, etc., a “televisit” is an appropriate and welcomed solution. Please visit our website for more information on our Televisits service or contact us directly if you would like to discuss a remote visit with WHC using our Televisits service.
