Telehealth


 

Central Jersey Hand Surgery is excited to announce that we are now offering state of the art Telehealth Virtual Video Visits.  These visits are convenient and eliminate the need for an office visit. A telehealth video visit will protect you from COVID-19, since you can remain safe and quarantined. Insurance companies and Medicare are covering these visits. 

In order to participate in a Telehealth Visit, you will need a computer with video or a cellphone with a camera. Setup is free.  An email will be sent to you with an appointment time and instructions for telehealth. Our staff is trained to help you make the transition easy.
