On-demand visits for non-emergency medical conditions
See primary care doctors and specialists for many illnesses and injuries, common health conditions, follow-up appointments and screenings. Telemedicine is taking health care to the next level by allowing patients, from anywhere within the Buckeye state, to get nationally ranked care from Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. Ohio State is recognized by U.S. News & World Report in nine specialties. This is the medical center's 28th consecutive year on the Best Hospitals list.
Almost all of our providers are using Telehealth Care and they can help you decide if a video visit or telephone visit is right for your condition. During your telehealth visit, your doctor can perform many of the same tasks for you as they would for an in-person visit, including prescribing medication.
See a doctor without leaving the house.
It is easier than ever to connect with our experts from the comfort of your home. Telehealth visits are open to new and existing patients. You can receive treatment for many conditions from an Ohio State health care provider remotely. Instead of coming into the office for your appointment, use your smartphone, tablet or computer to connect with your doctor. If you do not have access to an internet connection or device with audio and video, you may still be able to communicate with your doctor using a landline telephone.If you need help selecting a provider or specialist, visit Find a Doctor.
