What is TeleHealth?
In light of COVID-19, we want you to stay safe and healthy. TeleHealth virtual appointments are a great way to maintain social distancing while providing the care you need. With TeleHealth, you can meet with Dr. Thomas from the comfort of your home. With a virtual visit, you can use insurance or self-pay to see Dr. Thomas on your phone, tablet or computer. Acute red eye, dry eyes (including digital eye strain), allergic conjunctivitis, blepharitis, styes, subconjunctivitis hemorrhages and other issues are examples of things we can potentially assess via TeleHealth.
Is a TeleHealth Appointment Right for Me?
During this time of uncertainty, social distancing is the most effective way to stay healthy. However, keeping up with your healthcare and medical visits is still important. Telehealth virtual appointments allow you to meet with an eye doctor from the comfort of your home! However, at this time, annual eye exams still require an in-person visit.
We are available Monday through Friday to provide exceptional service and care to our patients virtually. However, in order to determine if TeleHealth is right for you and your particular needs, we require a quick screening call. Call (281) 858-EYES or fill out the Contact Us form to get started! We will then contact you to ensure this type of medical appointment is right for you and go over the details. You will receive information about connecting to our virtual appointment platform.
From the Comfort of Your Own Home
Meet with Dr. Thomas electronically, from your home or anywhere! If you have an internet connection and video capability from your phone, tablet or computer, you are ready to schedule a TeleHealth appointment. If you don’t have internet or video capability, a virtual visit over the telephone may still be an option for you. We can discuss this with you during your pre-screening call.
