Scheduled EZVisitOn-Demand EZ Video Visit

Broadlands Family Practice is conducting a pilot video consultation program (EZVisit™) for patients who wish to be seen by the doctor from virtually anywhere. These visits are designed to address straightforward burgeoning medical matters without disruption to the patient’s busy schedule. Video visits do not replace important preventive medical care and may not be suitable for more complex medical issues.

These visits will be offered on a limited basis at first. They are designed to offer the same quality care you have come to expect from our physicians and staff. The purpose of this pilot is to discover any difficulties that may arise during the delivery of your care. We anticipate the need to make adjustments. Your input and suggestions are critical to the success of this program. Any constructive comments are always appreciated! Please send comments and suggestions to kmrodriguez@ffpcs.com.
