St. Lukeʼs Virtual Visits Connect Patients to Care

By now, most people know what to do if they have COVID-19 symptoms. But during a quarantine, what do you do if you need to see a doctor for another concern?

St. Lukeʼs has the answer with its Virtual Visit option.

“Your health care needs don’t stop, and neither do we,” states St. Lukeʼs family medicine physician Dennis McGorry, MD. “In most cases you can stay home and still be ‘seen’ by your doctor.”

“St. Lukeʼs Virtual Visits, you can connect with your primary care doctor, a physical therapist or a specialist from the comfort and convenience of your own home.”

Patients who already have a scheduled appointment or need a new appointment are encouraged to call their physicians’ office to schedule the virtual visit in place of their typical in-office visit. Then it’s simply a matter of connecting via phone or computer.

“Staying home is important in a time like this,” says McGorry. “As we are being advised to shelter in place, it should be reassuring to know that your doctor is here for you.”

How can a St. Lukeʼs Virtual Visit help you?
