Granite Peaks GI offers telehealth clinic visits with our providers. Telemedicine has been around for a while and for some gastrointestinal conditions, it’s a natural fit. We know it’s not always easy to get away for a doctor’s appointment. This convenient new option allows you to have a virtual visit with your gastroenterology specialist from the comfort and privacy of your home. It doesn’t matter whether you live in Utah County, Salt Lake County, Summit County or beyond, you can visit with your provider for important digestive health care.
It’s easy! If your condition and symptoms make a telehealth virtual visit an option for you, our staff will schedule you to have an online, face-to-face conversation with your gastroenterology provider via home computer, tablet or cell phone. Think of it as a virtual house call.
A few days before your appointment you will receive an email and text invitation to complete your electronic registration forms. Shortly before your telehealth appointment, our office will contact you to confirm that your registration forms have been received, verify your information and take your payment for the visit. Your provider’s medical assistant will gather your health information and then connect you with your provider.
Obviously, a virtual visit doesn’t work for every healthcare appointment, but it’s a convenient option in many cases. Most insurance plans cover telehealth visits as they would an office visit. Check with your insurance plan to learn more about their coverage of virtual visits.
Give it a try! Request a telehealth virtual visit when you make your next Granite Peaks Gastroenterology appointment.
