Video Visits

Video and telephone visits are helpful new way to connect you to your provider.  You can still see your health provider even if:

  • You have a fever or cough and need to stay home protect others from your germs
  • You are staying in your home to avoid getting exposed to COVID19
  • It is difficult to get to FHC because of reduced bus service or because your kids are home
