Virtual medicine. Telemedicine. Telehealth. Online healthcare. What does it all mean?
When you can’t make it to the experts, we bring them to you.
The UVA Karen S. Rheuban Center for Telehealth has over 20 years of experience making healthcare connections betweens specialists and patients throughout Virginia, the region and beyond.
Why Choose a Telemedicine Appointment
Telemedicine saves time and money as well as lives. Staying close to home, you can:
- Save the time and expense of long-distance travel
- Reduce days away from work
- Remain near your family
And despite the distance between you and your doctor, you can expect the same high standard of care that you would receive in a face-to-face meeting. Find out how to get started.
