Telehealth

 

Tucon Pulmonology now offers Telehealth services, so you can meet with your provider from the comfort and safety of home.

What is telehealth?

Telehealth or telemedicine is a virtual visit with your medical provider that you do using your smartphone, tablet, or computer. If you have this and a reliable wireless internet connection, you can have a telemedicine appointment!

How does telehealth work?

Using your smartphone, tablet, or computer, your telemedicine appointment will require access to your device speakers and camera so that the doctor can see you.

If you have the appropriate technology, we will provide you with a link specific to your doctor that allows you to access their “virtual waiting room.”

The practitioner will join you in this room when they are ready to start your appointment.

Once they join, you can both see and speak to each other by video.

How do I make a telehealth appointment?

Call us at (520)885-1402  and ask if telehealth appointments are an option for you. Some appointments may not qualify for telehealth as they require a physical examination or in-person testing. Also, you must be able to complete the pre-registration prior to your appointment through Phreesia.

To make a telehealth appointment, call us at (520) 885-1402 or complete this online form (existing patients only).
