Get the care you need with online care options

No time for sick time? Ascension Medical Group doctors offer online (virtual) visits with a doctor from wherever you are.

Whether you have new symptoms, questions, or concerns — we’re here for your family with quick and easy online (virtual) visits. Many doctors with local Ascension Medical Group locations offer same-day or next-day visits online for primary, pediatric and specialty care. 

With an online appointment, you can visit with your doctor personally and discretely from the comfort of home, office or wherever you are, using your phone, laptop or tablet. Talk with a doctor online about the same things you would discuss in person:

  • New symptoms
  • Questions and concerns
  • Follow up for a chronic condition such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol
  • Annual checkups
  • Specialty care
  • Pediatric care 

Your doctor starts by listening to your concerns and answering your questions. And your doctor can perform a virtual (telehealth) exam using video. Then, we work with you to create a care plan, which may include laboratory tests and imaging. Your doctor can also help you manage your medications during an online care visit and will send prescriptions to your local pharmacy or through Ascension Rx. And if more care is needed, they can schedule follow-up care (online or in-person) and connect you with specialists who are right for you.


Talk with your specialists online

Online visits with your specialist may be an option for your first consultation, follow-up appointments and on-going care. Just like an in-person visit, during this virtual visit, you will have a face-to-face telehealth consultation with your specialist using video. Tell us how you are feeling and ask us your questions from the comfort of your home. If needed, your specialist can order laboratory tests, imaging and medications. Call to ask your specialist if online visits are an option for your care.
