How does telehealth work?
Fill out the contact form below or give the office a call to arrange your appointment. Be sure to check the box “I am interested in Telehealth”. You will receive a link via email after an initial phone call to arrange your appointment.
What platform is used for telehealth?
Dr. Brown uses the industry leading doxy.me platform for telehealth. This platform was designed specifically with patient privacy in mind. It has become an industry leader in virtual, medical appointments (aka telehealth), and is fully HIPAA compliant. Doxy.me will run on any Android, iOS, MacOS, or PC without the need to download any standalone applications. Simply click on the link provided after your appointment is confirmed, and the application will download automatically.
How should I prepare for a telehealth session with Dr. Brown?
Find a quiet room where you will not be disturbed for the duration of your session. If you’re using your cell phone to connect, turn “Do Not Disturb” mode on. Please ensure you are on a stable, and fast enough internet connection for a video call, or alternatively, use a voice call. Video calls in particular use significantly more bandwidth than a voice call.
