TeleVisits and how to use them

In an effort to prevent the spread of disease, we are now offering virtual Telehealth visits instead of in person visits for certain situations. All COPC providers are TeleVisit-enabled and are ready to serve your healthcare needs via a virtual Telehealth visit.

TeleVisit Requirements

You can participate in virtual telehealth visits with a smart phone, tablet, or computer with a camera and microphone. Connection can be established via the Patient Portal, the Healow app on your phone or tablet, or simply by opening a link which can be sent by email or text.
