What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is caring and treating patients remotely when the provider and patient are not physically present with each other. We offer a telemedicine option to speak to one of our experienced providers through a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform.  It is a convenient and cost effective way to provide you with great healthcare. You can follow up on any previous visit, go over your medications, review your labs and prescribe medications if necessary.

Is a telemedicine visit covered through my insurance?

Many insurance companies have telemedicine as part of their coverage. Please check with your specific insurance company and healthcare plan for more detailed information. We also have self pay pricing available.

How do I start?

To start, call our front office at 760.448.6650 or send an email to info@coastalfamilyuc.com to schedule an appointment time. We will also provide you with more detailed instructions at that time.

Telemedicine appointments are NOT for emergency communications or urgent requests. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
