Telemedicine Appointments

It’s important to keep up with your health. Whether you're looking for a new doctor or need to follow-up with your current doctor, Temple Health offers telemedicine appointments for many of our specialty services.

New Patient Appointments

Telemedicine appointments are handled similarly to in-office visits, and you should plan to discuss all of the same concerns and topics you would in person. Your physician can often evaluate important aspects of your health visually, and observe symptoms that may be concerning. 

If you have concerns about using telemedicine for a new patient visit, talk to your provider to find out if an in-office visit is medically necessary. 

A wide range of Temple primary care and specialty care doctors are available for new patient appointments.

Specialties available using telemedicine include:

Current Patients

We are pleased to offer telemedicine for our current patients. We encourage our patients to continue your routine and follow-up visits with telemedicine appointments rather than postponing healthcare needs.     

If you are a current Temple patient, please talk to your provider’s office to see if routine or follow-up visits using telemedicine are right for you. You can contact your provider’s office using myTempleHealth or by calling the office directly.

When an In-Office Appointment Is Needed

Our goal is to provide you with the right level of care at the right location. While telemedicine is highly convenient and often appropriate in the current environment, not all patient appointments can be handled using a phone call or video visit. When medically necessary, your doctor may ask to see you in the office or refer you to obtain in-person testing or procedures.

Temple has implemented new safety precautions and protocols designed to protect our patients and staff. Please take the time to learn more about how we are protecting you, so that you can get the care you need.
