The McMaster Family Health Team is Offering Appointments via Video!

Did you know that the McMaster Family Health Team is now offering appointments via video to all patients using a secure, easy-to-use platform? 

A video visit allows you to talk online to your healthcare provider using video chat – all from the safety, comfort and convenience of your own home using your computer, tablet or smartphone.

Many of the appointments booked with your healthcare provider can be scheduled as a video visit. You can request a video visit when you call the clinic to book your appointment.

Here is what some patients have said about their video visits:

     – “I feel this platform is long overdue. It is very convenient and saves time, transportation and parking fees. Also provides better time management- no wasted time in the waiting room!”

     – “I found it useful and would love this as an alternative especially in poor weather. “

     – “I am completely satisfied with this process. I hope it continues even when COVID-19 is no longer an issue. I like it.”

     – “One of the positive outcomes of this COVID is additional accessibility with virtual appts, which previously weren’t available when I was bedridden & inquired last Dec. I’m hoping you’ll continue to keep it as an appt option in the future. Thank you so much!”

     – “The link was very easy to hook up to. Very pleasant experience.”
