Choices has expanded our Telemedicine services during the pandemic to enable patients to stay in the safety and convenience of their own homes and access the same high-quality care they receive during “in-clinic” visits.
Telemedicine and Televisits are especially important during this pandemic when staying at home is critical to saving lives. From counseling with licensed social workers to a range of essential GYN visits including follow-ups, lab results, prenatal care, birth control, and general options counseling, we ensure that our patients can privately and safely access our health professionals.
During this public health crisis, Choices offers Telehealth appointments for:

Remember, Choices has been here for 50 years—our specialty is YOU!

Our Telemedicine services give at-home patients the same high-quality care they receive during in-clinic visits.
