A Virtual Visit allows patients to work with one of our practitioners via phone or video conferencing, due to a distance barrier between The Sante Center for Natural Healing and the patient, or the patient being house-bound. We can also schedule a Virtual Visit as a convenient and time-saving option for local patients, too, for brief discussions and when an in-person exam/visit is not necessary.
If you are a prospective patient seeking an initial overview evaluation with some specific needs or questions, contact us to arrange a 20 minute consultation with one of our practitioners, for a nominal fee, to see how we might best assist you. If, however, you are seeking a more comprehensive evaluation or definitive treatment plan, we will need to arrange a longer consultation session.
If you are a patient with an established relationship with The Sante Center, simply contact us or inquire about Virtual Visits at your next visit, to determine if a Virtual Visit is appropriate for you.
What is the benefit of video conferencing vs. phone conferencing, and is there a difference in fees?
Psychological studies have repeatedly shown that the majority of our human communications are transmitted by non-verbal expressions. As valuable as real-time phone conversations are, they are greatly lacking in optimal communication. As we take your healthcare very seriously, and wish nothing but the best for you and your loved ones, we offer video conferencing at no extra charge, as an option in addition to phone conferencing.
What if I don’t have a web camera at home?
It’s not a problem! We can arrange for a one-way video conference discussion, where you can see us, even if we can’t see you. Alternatively, we can just simply use phone conferencing.
What should I do? I’m not aware of video conferencing software on my computer.
As a patient of The Sante Center, we provide you with a state-of-the-art health record software program that includes a secure video conferencing (and email messaging) system for you to communicate with us, and vice versa. It’s just one of many features of our office we are proud to offer our patients, to improve their healthcare experience!
If you are new to our office and not yet an established patient and wish to use video conferencing for the first Virtual Visit consultation, we will direct you to download the Skype program free from the internet for this initial visit.
How do I find out if my condition or my treatment plan is available via Virtual Visit?
It’s easy! Just contact us! We’ll be happy to let you know right away.
