Video Visits: See a doctor from anywhere

Video Visits let you receive care and medical advice from the comfort of home, or anywhere. A Video Visit (also known as telehealth) is simply a video call which allows you to meet face-to-face, in real time, with a healthcare professional. 

More than 500 of our physicians* and advanced practice clinicians are offering scheduled and on-demand Video Visits to new and established Edward-Elmhurst Health patients of all ages. This includes internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics and a range of specialties.
