Doctors’ Visits from the Comfort of Your Home 

Don’t let the current pandemic hinder your ability to schedule an appointment with a doctor. Communicate via video chat, phone call or Athena Patient Portal messaging. 

The Richmond Health Network family of providers is offering virtual visit options, also known as telehealth, to our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. New patients are also welcome. 


There are 3 ways to conduct a virtual visit: 


Video Chat:

  • Offered through the Zoom app or other private facing video chat technologies such as FaceTime.
  • Patient must have an email address and access to a smartphone, laptop, or other device with a camera.
  • Available for most visit types.


Phone Call:

  • Telephone only visit with your healthcare provider.
  • Ideal when technology for video chat is not available.


Patient Portal Messaging:

  • Communicate with your healthcare provider by asking medical questions and receiving answers through the secure Athena Patient Portal, supported by Richmond Health Network.
  • Participants must have a patient portal account. Sign up here.
