UCR Health is now offering telehealth services for patients who have future appointments scheduled with primary care, pediatrics, women’s health, and other service lines.
During a telehealth visit, the patient and physician use a computer or smartphone to communicate via video chat. Because no physical exam is possible, telehealth is most appropriate for patients who need routine follow-ups with their providers.
Other common health issues that can be quickly and appropriately addressed via telehealth include:
- Cold and flu
- Insect bites
- Sore throat
- Pink eye
We understand that some patients would prefer to stay home if possible – UCR Health is proactively reaching out to patients eligible for telehealth visits. Please note that patients who have flu‐like symptoms will be rescheduled for a phone or video visit with a nurse or provider.
Additionally, all psychiatry patients will be offered the option of scheduling a video visit to take place from the comfort of their home.
New patients who need to schedule a new patient visit should not hesitate to do so by calling us at 1-844-827-8000 or CLICK HERE to request an appointment online.
