Same-Day Appointments, From the Comfort of Your Own Home
Many doctor’s appointments do not require an in-person visit to the doctor’s office.
General health questions, prescription refills, referrals and many more of your health concerns can be addressed safely and effectively with a same-day video or telephone appointment with Dr. Bouchard.
Take advantage of all the convenient ways to contact and meet with your doctor:
- secure messaging
- telephone advice
- videoconferencing appointments
In-Office Follow-Ups Always Available
If you’re already one of Dr. Bouchard’s patients, you’ll always have access to in-person office appointments like you always have.
Some types of medical concerns, of course, cannot be effectively resolved through an online appointment.
For health concerns that require an in-person physical examination, you can simply book an in-person office visit.
The online appointment will help us to decide which of your concerns are best addressed in person, and which concerns can be addressed with a virtual appointment—potentially saving you a trip to the office.
