Virtual Office Visits (Telehealth)
Esophageal Institute of Atlanta is Offering Virtual Office Visits (Telehealth)
During this difficult time, we have added Virtual Office visits as a way to undergo an initial evaluation by Dr. Smith or to continue discussions with about how to best manage your condition. Most health plans are covering Virtual Office visits.
You may schedule a Virtual Office visit by calling our office at 404-445-7787. Appointments will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For the visit you will need a smartphone, a tablet, or a computer with a camera. We are using the Telehealth app Doxy.me, which provides face-to-face consultation with Dr. Smith. Doxy.me uses your device and web browser to make a live video connection. This is a HIPAA compliant process that is recommended by the AMA and others for Telehealth.
Once you have a Virtual Office visit scheduled you will use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to access a Virtual Waiting room where you will then be connected to Dr. Smith. More information about Doxy.me can be found at https://doxy.me/.
