What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine allows you to see a provider that is located at another facility without requiring you to travel to the provider’s location for an appointment. This visit is made possible by your personal computer/laptop with a working webcam or a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. During an EmotionalWellnessNow appointment, you and the provider will see and hear each other, creating an opportunity to discuss health concerns and care plans.

How does the EmotionalWellnessNow service work?
