Your health and safety is essential. We're here to provide care that goes
beyond an illness caused by a single virus.
The Care You Need From the Comfort Of Your Home
NBFM is providing telehealth appointments to our patients. With COVID-19 potentially preventing you from visiting in person we wanted to continue offering high quality care remotely.
Our Telehealth service allows you to speak with one of our providers and still receive comprehensive care via a phone call or computer.
Telehealth uses live video conferencing through a smartphone, tablet or computer to interact with your family medicine provider. There is no extra fee for this service. Co-pays, co-insurance or deductibles, if any, will be the same as an in-person visit.
We use Doxy.me for all telehealth appointments to make your experience easy and provide you with the best care outside of our office. While you can speak to a provider over the phone for your telehealth appointment, we do advise using a device with a screen and camera so we may best serve your needs.
Prepare For Your Telehealth Visit
You’ll need a smartphone or laptop with camera access.
NOTE: Due to screen size, a laptop or desktop device is preferred over a phone.
You will receive a call from a NBFM clinical staff member for pre-visit instructions.
An invite will be sent to your selected device. Click the link to access your virtual dashboard.
