MURFREESBORO, TN - Murfreesboro Medical Clinic (MMC) is now offering telehealth visits to patients during this time of crisis.
MMC's top priority is the health and safety of its patients,visitors and staff. Patients who have upcoming appointments or who need to be seen by their primary or specialty care provider are encouraged to contact their provider's office to see if their visit is appropriate for a telehealth visit.
During a telehealth visit, the patient and provider communicate via video chat. Telehealth visits allow patients to receive effective, quality care without leaving home by using a smartphone,tablet or computer with a webcam. These visits are private and confidential and are now covered by insurance (will be billed as a regular visit).
MMC Family Medicine Physician, Dr. Zane Cooke, shares why telehealth visits have been a priority for MMC in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. "Telehealth is a unique opportunity to meet patients where they are and deliver care to their home." Dr. Cooke continues to say, "It allows the physician to reach more patients and avoid unnecessary exposure to the illness, which ultimately gives patients increased peace of mind."
Not every type of appointment will be appropriate for a telehealth visit. Any patient who would like to inquire about a telehealth visit is encouraged to contact their provider's office via the MMC and Me Patient Portal or call the department directly.
