Phone or Video Visits With Your Doctor
Doctor's appointments from wherever you are.
If you're a Sharp Rees-Stealy patient, you may have the option of appointments with your doctor from the convenience of your phone, computer or handheld device. Plus, you'll be seeing your personal physician who knows you, your health history and has access to your electronic medical records.
Phone visits and video visits are ideal for certain medical conditions and for follow-up appointments — we recommend discussing with your doctor whether this type of visit is right for you.
If you need advice from your doctor, have a medical concern or need a follow-up appointment — but don't want to go in for an office visit — a phone visit might be the ideal option for you. You'll be able to connect with your doctor by phone from wherever it's most convenient for you.
Instead of going to your doctor's office, you can schedule video appointments from your computer, tablet or phone. By scheduling a video visit, you can connect with your doctor from your home, office or anywhere that's handy for you and your device.
Are you eligible?
You are eligible for phone or video visits if you:
- Are at least 18 years old
- Have HMO insurance accepted by Sharp Rees-Stealy
- Are enrolled in Sharp HealthCare ACO-II
- Are a patient of a doctor who offers phone or video visits
- Have been seen by that doctor in the last 12 months
If you meet all the above criteria, when you call for your next appointment simply ask if you can make it a phone or video visit. Note: copayments may apply depending on your health insurance plan.
