Telehealth is Available for You!

A telehealth visit is a convenient way for you to consult with your doctor without having to go to the office. There are certain situations or conditions that require an in-office visit, however many appointments can happen over the phone or with video chat. Most Emerson doctors are available for telehealth visits for your health and well-being, which many insurance plans will cover.
