Telemedicine Services at Foot, Ankle & Leg Center
Can’t make it to our office? We May Still be Able to Help!
It can be challenging at times to come into the office for an appointment—sometimes even impossible. This has become especially true during the current COVID-19 pandemic that is impacting all our lives, but we can face difficult circumstances during other moments, too.
At the same time, it is important that you find the relief and treatment you need.
Fortunately, we have a way for you to stay on top of managing your foot and ankle care when you are physically unable to come to our office:
Regardless of whether you are constrained by illness or quarantine, lack of transportation, scheduling conflicts, or any other reason, a telemedicine appointment can allow access to expert insight and analysis from a foot and ankle specialist—all without leaving your home.
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is when we use technology (i.e. videoconferencing software and screens) to provide clinical services to you. An in-person visit is not required.
Essentially, Dr. Richer can visually see your foot and ankle, communicate directly with you, and answer any questions you may have – all while you remain in the comfort of your own home.
Is telemedicine covered by insurance?
While telemedicine services have been increasingly covered by insurance companies, the answer depends on your specific provider and plan.
Not sure if your insurance plan covers telemedicine appointments? Just call our office at (480) 629-5903 and a staff member will be happy to assist you.
