We Now Offer Virtual Visits to Expand Our Reach
We are partnering with eVisit to offer secure, online visits with Dr. Laskonis and Dr. Lachman. As a first step, we are offering these visits for AFTER HOURS care, in the evenings and on weekends. eVisit is a telehealth and patient-engagement platform that lets patients see their own doctors virtually over encrypted, HIPAA-compliant video chat.
To better understand how its done, see this video:
