Middlesex Health Now Offers Virtual Visits

April 8, 2020
Speak to your doctor from home through a Virtual Visit on Zoom.

You are being encouraged to stay home and keep your distance from others, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore any health concerns.

In the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, please know that Middlesex Health is here for you. While its offices remain open, Middlesex is now providing virtual visits, or telehealth visits, to ensure that you get the medical care you need without having to leave your home.

Middlesex Health Primary Care, Middlesex Health Family Medicine, Middlesex Health Center for Behavioral Health, Middlesex Health Surgical Alliance, Middlesex Health MultiSpecialty Group and Middlesex Health Physical Rehabilitation are all now offering this service.

In order to take part in a virtual visit, you must use a mobile device (iPhone or iPad or Android phone or tablet) or have access to a laptop or desktop computer with a camera and microphone. You will be using Zoom, an easy-to-use video communication platform, to talk to medical staff, including your medical provider.

Middlesex Health is pleased to offer this new service to you and wants to assure you that it is safe. Your privacy and health information will be protected at all times, and due to COVID-19, most health insurance companies are covering virtual visits in April, May and June. Please check with your insurance provider to be sure.

To schedule your virtual appointment, please call your medical provider’s office directly.

Also, please note that measurements, such as your blood pressure and weight, cannot be taken during these virtual visits. You are encouraged to monitor these measurements at home until you are seen in person again.
