Virtual Primary Care
Between your career and your home life, it can be hard to make time to see your primary care provider in person. Christiana Care Virtual Primary Care 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 Virtual Primary Care use a smartphone, tablet or personal computer to connect with their 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.
