Telemedicine appointments now available at the High Risk Pregnancy Center.
At the High Risk Pregnancy Center, our top priorities are the health and safety of mothers-to-be and their unborn babies—and of our staff and the communities we serve.
That’s why we’ve launched a remote way for our patients to connect with a high-risk pregnancy doctor from the safety and comfort of their own home.
Telemedicine brings your doctor to you.
During pregnancy, every appointment matters. Regular appointments are even more important with high-risk pregnancies. With telemedicine, you keep your appointment with your HRPC caregiver. Instead of a face-to-face, in-office visit, your appointment is video-based, further limiting your risk of coronavirus exposure while offering greater convenience in your care. All you need is a computer, laptop or smart device, such as a smartphone or tablet.
Typical appointments eligible for telemedicine visits include (but are not limited to):
- Pre-pregnancy consultations
- Review of laboratory results
- Genetic counseling
- Diabetes education and follow-up
- Care of lower risk medical conditions not requiring examination
If you need to be seen in our offices, be assured that we are taking extra measures and precautions to keep you and your family safe and healthy. You can learn more about those safety measures in the video below.
Telemedicine also allows us to expand our services and increase access for patients. Whether it is due to a scheduling constraint for a mother-to-be or expanding high-risk services to patients in rural areas, with telemedicine we are able to more easily adapt and respond to our patients’ needs.
