Due to the recent Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, it has been recommended that routine patient exams and sick visits be conducted by telemedicine. 

 

Each of our providers are using either one or more of the following connection programs:

  • Doxy.me

  • Facetime

  • Messenger

  • Google Duo

When you call to get your telemedicine appointment, your provider's staff will let you know which program your provider prefers.

 

Here are some quick points about telemedicine: 

  • We can only offer telemedicine conferencing by appointment at this time.   Please call our office at 601-261-5710 to set up an appointment time.  

  • You will be able to use either a computer with a web camera/microphone or smartphone or similar device. 

  • By engaging in a video exam, you are agreeing to a telemedicine visit to avoid an in-person visit as suggested by the Mississippi State Department of Health.

  • Your video is not saved permanently, but the provider will be entering information in your current office chart. 

  • Telemedicine visits through Doxy.me are HIPAA compliant, and your patient privacy rights will be maintained.   Those visits through Facetime, Messenger and Duo are NOT considered HIPAA compliant although they are allowed to be used during the Covid 19 pandemic. 

  • Of course, the main limitation with this type of exam is that the provider cannot examine you.   After discussion, he or she may still recommend that you be physically seen.

  • There is a charge for this and your insurance will be billed.

    • You may get a bill depending on your coverage, copay/deductible or if you are Self Pay.

    • Please call your insurance company to verify if you have coverage.
