Adams Patterson Telehealth

Dear Patients,

In order to keep our patients and staff as safe and healthy as possible during the current Cornovirus health situation, we will be offering Telehealth visits for certain types of pre-approved appointments. 

While virtual visits are not appropriate for all conditions, we are often able to provide telephone or video call care for these common complaints:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Some types of vaginal infections 
  • Birth control counseling and prescribing
  • Menopausal issues
  • Medication follow ups
  • Discussions regarding test results
  • Rashes
  • Allergies
  • Constipation, diarrhea or vomiting
  • Follow up visits for chronic gynecology visit issues
  • Some types of minor obstetrical complaints
  • Anxiety/ Depression medication management 

Please keep in mind that since a physical exam, laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging cannot be performed via video conference, we cannot schedule Telehealth visits for conditions which require these types of evaluations. Our office is open and will still be scheduling these types of visits in the office.

Most of our major insurers are covering Telehealth visits at this time.  You will be billed through your insurer and any applicable co-pay will be collected online prior to your Telehealth visit. If your insurer does not cover Telehealth, you will be asked to provide online payment at the time of your Telehealth visit. The Telehealth visit fees range from $50-$150.

It is possible that after video-conferencing, you may be asked to come in for an in-office visit if it becomes obvious that we need to perform a physical exam or any testing that reaches beyond the abilities of video conferencing.  If this is necessary you will not be charged for the Telehealth visit.

We are providing video conferencing through doxy.me, a video conferencing platform that is HIPAA secure. All data is encrypted, your sessions are anonymous, and none of your information is stored on the platform.

How to:

Appointments for telehealth visits can be made by calling 901-767-3810. 

 No need to download software or create an account. Just use your smartphone (easiest) or computer or tablet with a camera and microphone. Supported browsers are Chrome, Safari and Firefox only.

To connect with your doctor, you will be sent a personal link via text during a prespecified time period (i.e. Thursday, 10:00-10:45 am). Promptly click the link and sign in to your video call using your first and last name. Be sure to enable your camera and microphone when prompted.
