Virtual Visits

Palomar Health Medical Group is proud to offer virtual visits for our patients. Through various platforms, we can conveniently host virtual visits from the comfort of home for individuals with minor to moderate symptoms. Doctors can evaluate symptoms, answer questions, and recommend next steps. All clinics also remain open for in-office visits. Please consult your care team to determine the best visit type for you.

Scheduling

Please call your doctor’s office and schedule as you would for an in-person appointment. The scheduler will provide you with simple instructions on how to join the virtual visit. To locate your doctor’s office number, please search by name.
