No More Waiting Rooms? When to Use a Virtual Care Video Appointment with a Healthcare Provider

Virtual care through two-way video technology is an easily accessible and helpful healthcare tool to make life easier when you or a loved one feel sick.

Gone are the days when you felt like you lived at the pediatrician’s office with your sick child for countless exams and antibiotic prescriptions.
