Telemedicine: Virtual Consultations

How Telemedicine Can Help You

Do you need to speak with a podiatrist or schedule an examination, but you just aren’t sure how you’ll be able to get to the office?

We have a solution for you: telemedicine conferences with the doctors at Capital Podiatry Associates.

Telemedicine is a great option for those who need diagnostic services, check-up appointments, or advice from a doctor but find it difficult to make a physical trip to the office—or who just appreciate the time savings and flexibility of a consult from home!

Communications are secured using end-to-end encryption and are fully HIPAA compliant.

Interested? Just complete the adjacent form to request your virtual appointment! Our team will follow up shortly to book a time with Dr. Gilmore or Dr. Ho, and provide any additional instructions you may require.
