Christiana Care Primary Care

Virtual Primary Care Practice

Between your career and your home life, it can be hard to make time to see your primary care provider in person. The Christiana Care Virtual Primary Care Practice offers high-quality health care to meet your needs when it’s convenient for you.

Instead of an in-person appointment in a doctor’s office, patients of the Virtual Primary Care Practice use a smartphone, tablet or personal computer to connect with one of our health care providers. You will see your provider face-to-face in a video visit (similar to FaceTime or Skype). The communication is secure and HIPAA-compliant.
