Book a virtual appointment with a provider at Oasis
Oasis: The Center for Mental Health is now actively booking appointments for “video visits” with providers using telehealth technology to meet the demand of patients who need mental health treatment services while social distancing. You can request an appointment online here.
Video consultations with medical professionals, also known as, “telehealth,” or “telemedicine” are not new in the healthcare marketplace. However, until recently both providers and patients vastly underutilized the available services and technology. Now, as businesses and citizens begin to exercise extreme caution to avoid further spread of COVID-19, video consultations are becoming an important and critical resource for patients with non-life-threatening health concerns.
