- Call your Westmed provider’s office, just as you would for an in-person visit, and request a “Virtual Visit” at a date & time that is convenient for you.
- Once your visit is confirmed, you will receive an email with your appointment date, time and instructions on how to get set up for your Virtual Visit on your mobile device or desktop.
- To save time, you can download the instructions for getting set up with Virtual Visits here. Your provider may use an alternative platform, like Zoom or Skype, to conduct your visit and will send you appropriate instructions if either of these alternative telehealth platforms are to be used for your visit.
- At this time, you are not able to self-schedule Virtual Visit appointments online, or through the app.
Tips for a Successful Virtual Visit:
- Be sure you have strong WiFi connectivity
- Join your visit in a quiet, well-lit room with no background noise
- Write down questions for your doctor in advance so you don’t forget anything
- Try to speak slowly, as there is sometimes a delay in the video
- Remain on camera so that your provider can see you during the visit
