All appointments are via online HIPPA (privacy) compliant telemedicine. If you are a new patient, please contact our office at 509-457-4611. Ask for Sandra, and she will provide your with the necessary information. We use Doxy.me as the telemedicine link. It works easily both with smartphones and computers. Dr. Williams will send you a text message for smartphone use or an email for computer or tablet. The patient clicks on a link, which will make the televideo connection. This requires no downloads by the patient and can be used wherever there is an internet connection. A computer is recommended if available as the larger screen permits a more life-like encounter with a larger picture.
