  • What is a  Virtual Visit?
    •  A Virtual Visit is a convenient option for a face-to-face video appointment or telephone visit through your phone, smartphone, tablet or computer.
  • Why should we use Virtual Visit instead of just coming into the office?
    • In light of the recent CDC recommendations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, LMCS is taking necessary safety steps, including social distancing, to minimize the spread of this virus. Virtual visits provide a safe and convenient option to meet with your clinician and/or provider from the comfort and convenience of your home and receive care that meets the healthcare and insurance standards.
  • Is there a cost for doing a Virtual Visit?
    • All visits will be charged the same way as if you were seen in clinic, including self-pay, billing insurance and charging the patient a co-pay for the visit. The co-pay amount is based on your insurance plan. Contact your provider’s office for more information.
  • What equipment is needed for my Virtual Visit?
    • You can use any mobile phone, tablet or computer with a camera, microphone and web browser. We recommend using a secured Wi-Fi connection as well. Our clinic utilizes ZOOM a web-based software platform. Your scheduler will send you specific instructions for the platform prior to your appointment..
  • Will these encounters be recorded and saved?
    • No. The Virtual Visit video and audio WILL NOT be recorded or archived. Your care team will document the findings in your health record, just like a regular clinic visit.

*** The Virtual Intake is for a ONLINE VIDEO CALL with an intake clinician. ***

*** If you prefer a FACE-TO-FACE appointment, please call one of outpatient centers for more information. ***
