TeleVisit



Televisits with Your Physician

 
In light of the current restrictions on person to person contact, we are encouraging our patients to utilize televisits as much as possible. We hope that the use of televisits will allow us to care for patients that may otherwise be unable to come to our office due to personal or public health concerns (i.e. COVID-19). It continues to be our mission to provide the best care we can in a safe and responsible manner. When using televisits our ability to render our typical comprehensive care may have some limitations. Some of our services will not be possible to perform remotely. We will do our best to work around these and we appreciate your understanding.
 
Please review these guidelines prior to your telehealth visit:
 
1. After you are scheduled for a televisit with your physician you will receive an email 30 minutes prior to your appointment. This email will contain a link to connect you to the televisit.  You will not be able to connect more than (30) minutes prior to your appointment. (If you have not already, please be sure to email a copy of your driver's license and a copy of the front and back of your insurance card to OtoAssoFairfax@entmds.net). 
 
2. You must have an active Healow patient portal account. Please log in to make sure all of your contact information is up to date. The email on file is where the reminder link will be sent.
 
3. The easiest way to connect to the televisit is through the email link. However, you may log into the Healow patient portal via a desktop or laptop to connect to your appointment. You can also download the Healow app on a smart device (available in Google and Apple stores).  
 
4. The device you are connecting on must have a camera, a speaker, and a good internet connection.  The software will run a check of these items prior to connecting you to the physician.  If the physician has not yet connected to your appointment there will be a pop up stating which doc you are waiting for with the date/time of appointment.
 
The below document will give you additional information about the process:
 
BY PARTICIPATING IN THIS TELEVISIT, YOU ARE PROVIDING US YOUR CONSENT FOR TREATMENT AND AUTHORIZATION TO BILL YOUR INSURANCE ON YOUR BEHALF.  PLEASE BE AWARE THAT CO-PAYS AND CO-INSURANCE FOR THIS VISIT MAY APPLY BASED UPON YOUR INDIVIDUAL PLAN.
