Virtual Visits

What are Virtual Visits?

Virtual visits allow patients to meet for appointments online from their home or office.  If you do not live near our San Marcos office, or are unable to come to our office, a virtual visit allows you access to a secure one-on-one consultation via a smartphone, tablet, or computer.

What does a Virtual Visit Include?

A 90-minute virtual visit includes a complete evaluation, review of medications and supplements, nutritional planning and natural medical treatment plan.

FAQs

Can I Schedule a Virtual Visit for My Kids?

Virtual visits are available for all ages. Just like an in-person visit, a parent or guardian needs to be present to consent to treatment.

Can I Schedule a Virtual Visit for Any Condition?

Virtual visits are a convenient option for many conditions.  Virtual visits cannot be used to treat emergency conditions.

Here are the most common conditions that can be treated via a Virtual Visit:

  • Gastrointestinal Issues including food allergies, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, acid reflux, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation
  • Hormonal Issues including PMS, menopausal syndrome, adrenal fatigue, hyper or hypothyroidism
  • Weakened immune system including environmental allergies, chronic viral or bacterial infections
  • Fatigue
  • Poor cognition / poor memory

How it Works:

Once you are scheduled for a virtual visit, you will receive an invitation to the patient portal. Here you will find your new patient questionnaires.  Complete the new patient information at least 24 hours prior to your first appointment and we will call you to confirm your appointment.  Then at your scheduled appointment time, you will be contacted via Facetime, Skype, or phone.
