MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WTVF) — Murfreesboro Medical Clinic will now offer telehealth visits to patients in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

During a telehealth visit, the patient and provider communicate through video chat, allowing patients to receive care without leaving home or breaking social distancing measures.

The visits are covered by insurance and will be billed as a regular visit.

"Telehealth is a unique opportunity to meet patients where they are and deliver care to their home.” MMC physician Dr. Zane Cooke said. "It allows the physician to reach more patients and avoid unnecessary exposure to the illness, which ultimately gives patients increased peace of mind."

Patients who have upcoming appointments with a primary or specialty care provider can contact their provider's office to see if their visit can be done via telehealth.

Not all appointments can be done through telehealth. For more information, click here.
