How Virtual Visits Work

Virtual Visits are one-on-one video or phone appointments with your spine care provider. Virtual Visits can now be conducted for initial appointments for new patients, surgical consults, second opinions, and follow-up care across all spine conditions so that you can begin – or continue – your treatment.

For video Virtual Visits, all you need is a smartphone, tablet or computer with a video camera to get started. Call or request an appointment online, and our team will guide you through the process. For those who do not have access to video technology, our providers are also offering Virtual Visits over the phone.
