If you are unable to come into the office to see Mrs. DeVine due to the coronavirus situation, you may opt to have a HIPPAA compliant "telehealth" session instead. BCBS is encouraging telehealth for those who are unable to attend in person due to coronavirus or flu. Your co-pay and responsibility will be the same as an in person clinic visit--please contact the front desk to pay your co-pay.
To begin your telehealth session, ideally, use Google Chrome browser. Utilize the website https://doxy.me/jackiedevinelpc. Once you are logged in, you can type in your name and "check in", which will put you in Mrs. DeVine's "waiting room". Once you have "checked in" to the virtual waiting room and she is ready, she will click on your name and the session will begin via video chat.
