Telehealth is a way to have a virtual doctor’s appointment through your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Your telehealth visit is a secure, private connection to a face-to-face appointment with your orthopaedic physician. Telehealth allows OMNI Orthopaedics to improve the quality of our healthcare services to patients through efficient, safe and holistic care.
Why choose Telehealth Services?
Convenient, Real-Time Service

You, as our patient, are able to stay in the comfort of your own home, office, care facility or other location convenient for you.

This is especially important for patients who are High Risk in light of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.

Effective Orthopaedic Care
Your OMNI Orthopaedics care team will manage your virtual care just as if you were to be seen in the office. You will speak with a member of our clinical team prior to being seen by your physician. We are still able to provide necessary documents, prescriptions and referrals through these services.
Patient Requirements for Successful Telehealth Services:
Access to a smartphone or a computer with a camera, microphone and speakers. Many tablets and laptops come standard with these features. If you have used FaceTime, Zoom, or any other similar service to have a video call, you likely have the necessary equipment.
