At UF Health, we strive to make receiving care easy. A growing number of specialties and services are participating in our telehealth program at UF Health. We provide telehealth in four areas of patient services: dentistry, pediatrics, primary care and specialty care. In addition, the Student Health Care Center offers telehealth appointments.
Primary and Specialty Care
The UF Health pediatric team is ready to help with your child's health care needs through telehealth.
- Pediatrics primary care patients can connect with one of our providers from the comfort of your home during the open hours of our UF Health Pediatrics practices, including Pediatrics After Hours.
- Pediatrics specialty care patients, including neurosurgery and cardiology, can schedule telehealth appointments and check-ups.
- Learn more about the pediatrics telehealth program.
All primary care locations are now offering telehealth visits. Please contact your provider to schedule an appointment and determine if a telehealth visit is right for you. Your physician’s office will provide detailed instructions on how to complete your visit through our telehealth program or advise you if an in-person visit is recommended.
Our world-class specialty care physicians participate in UF Health's telehealth program to provide you with the care you need when you need it. Specialty telehealth appointments can include consultations, examinations and follow-up visits.
Many of our specialty care visits are evaluated for urgency and eligibility to participate in a telehealth visit. If your health care provider determines an in-person visit is beneficial to your care plan, you may be scheduled for a follow-up visit. Some specialties are only offering telehealth visits on a case-by-case basis.
Please contact your provider to schedule an appointment and determine if a telehealth visit is right for you.
