COVID-19 Update telehealth
As the Coronavirus situation continues to evolve, our patients safety remains our top priority. Since vaccinations are available and the state is returning to a new normal telephone visits will not be available.

The growing emergence of telehealth, or telemedicine, as a way to deliver health care has been a silver lining during the COVID-19 pandemic, But after Gov. Ron DeSantis let an executive order declaring a public-health emergency expire Saturday June 26, 2021 many regulatory flexibilities that health-care providers received during the pandemic, including flexibilities related to telehealth, also expired. As of Saturday June 26, 2021 , telephones are no longer an acceptable platform for delivering telehealth services to patients in Florida. Physicians also cannot use telehealth to prescribe controlled substances to existing patients for treating chronic non-malignant pain.
