Sentara Virtual Care
Sentara Virtual Care is a team comprised of doctors and nurse practitioners who offer virtual appointments in real time, from any location. As healthcare is ever-changing, Sentara Medical Group is constantly looking for new ways of practicing medicine that are most convenient for our patients. Virtual care allows us to do that, as we are able to communicate with patients without physically having them come into an office setting.
A video visit is one important component of virtual care. Similar to Skype of FaceTime, video visits allow patients to securely connect with a Sentara Medical Group provider through their computer, tablet or smart phone for the cost of their regular co-pay. The process for a video visit is similar to an office visit except for the fact that you are in a different location from the provider. During a video visit our care team is able to confirm a medical condition, determine a treatment plan and submit a prescription to the pharmacy – all without you leaving the comfort of your home or office.
