Schedule a Valve Disease Appointment
Now Scheduling Telehealth Appointments
Hoag is here for our community and wants to ensure you continue to receive world-class care as we face COVID-19. In an effort to keep you safe at home, Hoag has launched the ability to schedule cardiac surgery appointments via phone or video.
How to Schedule a Telehealth Appointment?
When you call your physician’s office, they will ask if you’d like to schedule a telehealth appointment. Telehealth appointments can be done via a phone call or through video. A staff member will then walk you through the steps related to completing a telehealth appointment.
Please note: Not all appointments can be done virtually. Your physician’s office will let you know what appointments can be done via phone or video, and what appointments are necessary to be done in person. Hoag continues to follow CDC recommendations to ensure our facilities are cleaned and sanitized for patients.
