Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance.
Videoconferences can be arranged for both new and established patients. Telemedicine is ideal for long distance patients, to contain the elevated costs of travelling and lodging.
At our Center, we use HIPAA compliant videoconferencing platforms.
For a number of years, we have been using VSee.
During the last days, because of the increased traffic on that platform, VSee has sometimes experienced glitches, preventing new patient to access a spot, and sometimes freezing access to everybody (old and new).
For this reason, we have purchased a license for another platform called BlueJeans.
Videoconferencing is available at the following rates:
$ 500 for foreign patients (new visits and follow-ups)
$ 300 for U.S. patients (new visits and follow-ups)
$ 100 for short follow-ups to discuss imaging results (<15 minutes)
Phone Conferencing Rates
Traditional phone conferencing is available at the following rates:
$ 300 for 21 to 30 minutes
$ 200 for 10 to 20 minutes
$ 100 for less than 10 minutes
Payments will be done at the time of the scheduling, via Credit Card.
IMPORTANT. Prior to any videoconference, it is highly recommended for the new and follow-up patients to undergo a physical and neurological exam performed by a local specialist, the written results of which should be transmitted to our Center.
