How Virtual Visits Work

Virtual Visits are one-on-one video or phone appointments with your weight management provider. Virtual Visits can now be conducted for initial appointments for new patients, surgical consults, second opinions, and follow-up care across all weight management treatments, surgical and non-surgical, so that you can begin – or continue – your weight loss journey.

For video Virtual Visits, all you need is a smartphone, tablet or computer with a video camera to get started. For those who do not have access to video technology, our providers are also offering Virtual Visits over the phone.

After completing the session, a new patient coordinator will be in touch to schedule your virtual consult. Alternatively, you can call the number provided at the end of the session to speak to a new patient coordinator during regular business hours.
