Telehealth

We offer "virtual visits" as a convenient option for many patients

To ensure that we continue to meet patients' healthcare needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, Saratoga Hospital offers telehealth options for many outpatient services, including emergent and urgent care. To request a telehealth appointment for your Saratoga Hospital Medical Group provider, call the number listed below. To arrange a video urgent care appointment, go to Urgent Care - Wilton or Malta Med Emergent Care.

Telehealth technology allows patients to connect with their healthcare providers - face to face via smart phone, tablet, or computer - without leaving home. Although they're not a replacement for in-person provider visits, telehealth appointments can be an excellent option for situations that don't require hands-on care. 

For example: 
  • You have questions about the best treatment for minor symptoms, such Dan Eldredge Telehealhas a sore throat, runny nose, and sinus pain.
  • You recently had some tests and want to discuss the results.
  • You have a chronic condition, and it's time for your routine follow-up appointment.
  • You have a question about your medication.
  • You need routine care and, because your immune system is compromised, you have to be careful about coming into contact with people who might be contagious. 
Connecting with our telehealth providers
If you have a smart phone, tablet, or computer with a camera, you can schedule a telehealth appointment. Depending on your device, you may also need to download a free app. Simply call the appropriate office, and our staff will schedule the appointment and walk you through the process.

For the best possible experience, prepare for your telehealth appointment the same way you would for any visit with your provider. Write down questions or concerns and have a list of medications (or the medications themselves) ready for easy reference. 

All telehealth visits are conducted in keeping with federal HIPAA regulations, so you can be confident that your conversation and your health information are provide and secure.
