As we continue to address the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we are encouraging all patients to begin utilizing our Telemedicine option until further notice.

Telemedicine patients will be seen by either Dr. Sax or one of our Providers; Carlee LaPensee, APRN or Jesse LeBaron, PA. They will conduct your office visit via Facetime or Skype. One of our Medical Assistants may initially contact you to take some vital information prior to you seeing the Provider. The Provider is able to prescribe or refill a medication as necessary after the call.

Telemedicine is now considered a covered service by the following:

  • Medicare – No copay
  • Aetna – No copay
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield – Copay required
  • United Healthcare – Copay required

*Subject to change

Any other insurance or self-pay will be charged $100 upon scheduling. For those with insurance, we will be happy to submit your claim for your reimbursement.

Apple Facetime via iPhone or iPad is the preferred method for the Telemedicine visit. Otherwise, the Skype app may also be used. If you have any questions about how to use Facetime, give our office a call. Please have your phone number for Facetime or Skype name ready when scheduling.
