Our telehealth options

We offer telehealth appointments for nearly all heartburn appointments leading up to surgery.

This convenient option allows you to consult with your surgeon without having to leave your house. You don’t have to worry about a ride, especially in inclement weather. This is especially helpful if you have mobility issues. Other benefits include:

  1. A family member or designee may participate in telehealth visits.
  2. Our surgeons can look at your tests and other results and share them on the screen, just as if you were in the office.
  3. You won’t have to wait in the office to be checked in and out.
  4. Almost all appointments in the heartburn program may be telehealth, except the post-operative follow up.
