At Connecticut GI we want you to know that your health and safety is our utmost priority. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to protect the health and safety of our patients, we are pleased to announce that we are offering telemedicine services to our patients.
By utilizing telemedicine (also known as 'telehealth'), patients can have a 'virtual' visit with their physician by telephone or video conference. This will allow our patients to access their Connecticut GI physician from the comfort and safety of their home. Patients will not be required to download any special software or app to access this service.
To schedule a telemedicine appointment please contact CTGI by clicking here to request an appointment online.
With advancements in technology, the way physicians deliver medical care is changing and improving. Telemedicine might not be traditional but it certainly offers its advantages to the patient.
So, what are the benefits of Telemedicine?
Using technology can be daunting at times but Doxy.me is as easy as clicking a link. Call your clinic and schedule an appointment with your doctor. He will send you a link via email or text (whichever is easiest for you). You click the link, enter your name, select check-in and you’re ready to go.
