With widespread adoption of social distancing, many people are seeking ways to see a health care provider for common illnesses without going into a doctor’s office. During this time of heightened awareness of COVID-19 and influenza, having the option to see a provider from the comfort of your home can limit your exposure to other illnesses.
Virtual care allows you to talk to a provider through video on a smartphone, tablet or computer. To better meet the increasing interest in virtual health options, and to protect our patients and providers, Parkview has expanded its offerings. Patients with health concerns unrelated to COVID-19 can use several Parkview telehealth resources.
