Telehealth is easy and convenient, even if you have never done it before!
Telehealth is just like a regular office visit except that you will interact with Dr. Stephani either by a phone consultation (requires just your phone) or by video conferencing over the internet (which requires internet and your own smartphone, tablet or computer).
This is a very convenient way to have an appointment and will reduce your risk to exposures of viruses, including the Coronavirus.
- Make an appointment by calling 612-250-2804 or by emailing Michelle, the office manager, at Michelle@naturalfamilydoc.com
- Check your email to verify that you received a confirmation that includes a special link for your scheduled appointment.
- Click the link just prior to your scheduled appointment time, following the instructions in the email using an internet connected device. You will be prompted to run an application and once this is accepted, you will be directed to the appointment screen. Your secure and private appointment begins when Dr. Stephani joins in.
