Not all insurances, including Medicare, cover telehealth visits for spine.  Check with your insurance if it covers telehealth visits.

We can offer telehealth visits for post op visits; however, we prefer face to face visits for all other visits. Call (602) 944-2900 to schedule your telehealth appointment. 

For telehealth you must have a smart phone, webcam-enabled computer, or tablet.

Thank you for choosing Desert Institute for Spine Care’s Telehealth. Telemedicine means the practice of healthcare delivery, diagnosis, consultation, treatment, and transfer of medical data through interactive audio, video, or data communications that occur in the physical presence of the patient.

At the approximate time of your telehealth appointment, the medical assistant will call you to assist you in getting virtually checked into your appointment from a smartphone, webcam computer, or tablet.
