TELEMEDICINE:

Medical care by specialists is available at BCMH through videoconferencing technology.  You can be at a medical appointment without having to travel to a specialist's office, saving you time and money.

The technology allows you and your specialist to see and hear one another, much like a face to face visit.  A licensed nurse will care for you during your appointment.

Some types of visits conducted at BCMH include:

  • Endocrinology
  • Surgical follow up
  • Infectious disease
  • Pediatric
  • Neurology
  • Cardiology
  • Surgical weight loss
  • Behavioral Health
  • And more.......

Ask your specialist if telemedicine is right for you.  An appointment can be scheduled, just like a regular office visit and will be held at BCMH.
