Telehealth services are provided for First Choice Neurology follow-up patients.
What is Telehealth or TeleVisit?
Telehealth or Televisit is a detailed medical evaluation and management using a secure audio-video interface between our neurologists and your smartphone, tablet, or computer. It is similar to a traditional office visit — only conducted on a virtual basis.
You are evaluated inclusive of a comprehensive medical history and important visualized elements of a neurological exam. A thorough discussion occurs which addresses your neurologic signs and symptoms, resulting in complex medical decision making and comprehensive clinical management.
When necessary, our physicians can arrange diagnostic testing, prescribe medication, make referrals, order therapy, and recommend other necessary treatments.
A TeleHealth/TeleVisit is scheduled through the office of your neurologist and reimbursed like any other doctor’s appointment.
The Healow app is available for your phone or online when you need it.
How do I join a TeleVisit?

Click on the text or email link you receive from your doctor’s office. No login required. Or you can start the visit by logging into the Healow app or Patient Portal.
