At BVPTS, we are committed to delivering the best care possible to our patients and clients. In March of 2020 we began offering telehealth services to better serve the our patients and community, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic that was limiting our contact with patients. Patients that have taken advantage of this service have been pleased with the ease and convenience of receiving their physical therapy care in the comfort and safety of their home or office.
All that patients need to participate is an e-mail, some paperwork (of course), a device (phone, tablet, or computer) with a working camera and microphone, and an internet connection. Telehealth visits are then provided by e-mailing or texting a link to our secure bvpts.doxy.me server to give access to our virtual waiting room. From there your therapist will pick up you and complete your TeleHealth visit through a secured video session that ensures your privacy and confidentiality, while we meet with you and provide our care and treatment. In most cases, we are able to e-mail you an exercise program and go over it with you during your visit.
