Virtual Visits: Care By Video and Phone

Call the Patient Helpdesk

When you can't make it to the clinic in person, you can still get care. Virtual visits (having an appointment with a healthcare provider by video or phone call) offer a safe and convenient way to see a UVA Health provider, without leaving home.

Talk with your healthcare provider to see if they offer appointments via:

  • Video (online, on your phone, tablet, or computer)
  • Phone calls

What Services Can I Get by Video or Phone?

You'll need to ask your provider if your condition is treatable through a video or phone visit. Some medical issues require in-person appointments. Virtual visits work best for:

  • Routine wellness checks
  • Follow-up after surgery
  • Check-ins about prescriptions
  • Mental health and therapy
  • Reviewing test results

Ask your provider if you can schedule a virtual visit by:

  • Calling the clinic 
  • Sending a message via MyChart
