Telehealth Option

To reduce risk of transmission of corona virus Dr. Houghtalen is seeing patients only via telehealth for the foreseeable future.

The portal for telehealth visits is:

There is no need to download software or create an account. Just use a browser (ideally other than Firefox) on a computer or other device (phone, tablet) with a camera and microphone. Just before your appointment, log in to the virtual waiting room via the link above and Dr. Houghtalen will be alerted that you are ready for your visit.

Nearly all insurances cover telehealth visits as they do office visits. Copayments are generally the same. Some insurance plans are waiving copayments during the COVID emergency, but this is in state of flux. If you have questions or concerns about your insurance coverage, please contact your carrier.

Dr. Houghtalen is now able to schedule next visits and manage copayments during the appointment.

The telehealth option is ideal, but if you do not have access to a computer, tablet or internet capable phone, we can work on scheduling a telephone contact.

The office number is 585-381-1558.
