Schedule Video Visits Directly Online
Telemedicine is a common way to quickly and conveniently receive care. Working parents with sick kids, busy professionals, and others are finding that a video visit with their provider can allow them to get the care they need, then get back to their daily lives. Video visits also allow you to save time by not having to drive to a doctor’s office and find parking.
UPMC’s Find A Doctor includes the option to book an appointment for a video visit with primary care and pediatric providers directly from the web or mobile.
To use the online scheduling tool, search for your primary care or pediatric provider, click the “Book Appointment” button on their profile, and select the day and time that works best for you from the provider’s available time slots.
Check Out Provider Ratings
Just as product ratings and reviews are a must-have feature of shopping websites, online provider ratings and reviews can help you find the best provider to meet your needs.
On most Find A Doctor profile pages, you can see ratings and read reviews from patients. These patients rate their providers based on their experience during their visit, including how well the provider listened and explained, and whether they’d recommend the provider to friends and family.
