MARIPOSA — Starting today (March 23), patients at John C. Fremont Hospital will have the option to use “telemed” via any phone (landline, smartphone, flip phones) if they meet the criteria.
To find out if a patient meets the criteria and to make an appointment, please call John C. Fremont at 209-966-3631 and press option 2 for appointments.
Telemed — also referred to as “telehealth” or “e-health”- – allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients in remote locations using telecommunications technology.
If the patient meets the criteria and chooses to use telemed it will be billed to the patient’s insurance, please call your insurance company to find out the cost, in some cases it may be less than a physical visit.
John C. Fremont clinic is also rescheduling all annual exams, well child visits, primary care visits and specialty care visits to the month of May.
All patients who have a previously scheduled visit to the clinic will receive a phone call to reschedule.
