There has been a significant increase in the use of telephone visit services, urgent care centers, and emergency rooms since the Affordable Care Act went into effect. It has resulted in the fragmentation of care, increased costs for our patients, and, in numerous cases, inappropriate care.
There is incredible demand for after hours care and access. We realize that illnesses don't just happen Monday through Friday and coming to the office isn't always the most convenient in terms of timing. Using state-of-the-art technology, we have found a way to extend our hours and make it easier than ever to see your health care team through the use of video visits.
Of course, there are times when an office visit may still be necessary and there is no substitute for the physical exam in many instances. If it is determined a physical exam or further testing is necessary, we will direct you to the appropriate services, but we think that there is significant potential to avoid ER and urgent care visits while receiving appropriate care that adheres to recognized treatment guidelines.
