If you’ve ever used Skype on your computer or FaceTime on your iPhone, you’ve used the same type of technology teletherapy uses.

There are 2 methods of receiving teleservice. Those patients who want to wait for a scheduled telesession can make an appointment.

These emergency appointments generally do have a wait time, please check with office how long the approximate wait time will be for that day.
