When you don’t feel well, getting to the doctor’s office can be a challenge. With Virtual Visits, you can talk to a doctor whenever, wherever, and at a time that’s convenient for you, without the hassle or risk of leaving home.

What are Virtual Visits?
Think of Virtual Visits as a doctor’s house call, done by phone or video. You can schedule your visit 24/7, getting care without delay from a trusted, knowledgeable doctor, providing clinical advice for common conditions like the flu, sinus infections, sore throats, allergies and more.
