What to expect with your Telehealth appointment?

A Telehealth appointment is just like a regular appointment. You will sit in front of your computer, Tablet or Smart Phone where you will be able to see yourself and your Thorntree Health provider.

Once you have started your appointment, patients and providers will interact, just as they would for a traditional clinic appointment. Make sure to ask your provider questions, as you would in the office.

At the end of the appointment, your provider will develop a care plan and will prescribe or refill medication, if needed.
