Welcome to Telemedicine at PHCA!
Please read all of this information thoroughly so you are prepared for your telemedicine visit to go as smoothly as possible. The link to open your telemedicine visit is at the very end of this page.
PHCA is offering telemedicine for select visit types, as part of our efforts to protect the health of our patients and staff while COVID-19 is circulating. Telemedicine allows a patient to remain at home and connect with a provider using online video conferencing. This secure service is compliant with current HIPAA regulations. During scheduling calls, your office will advise you if your visit is eligible for telemedicine and what to expect.
After a Visit is Scheduled
Your office will send an email with visit details and instructions. Please keep this email for reference until your visit - you will need your unique Meeting ID from the email to connect to your visit.
If you can't find the email, search your account for a message from "DO_NOT_REPLY" or the keyword "telemedicine", and also check your junk/spam folder just in case. If you are still not able to locate the email, call the office for assistance: PHCA Office List - Contact Info
