Many of our providers in our Allergy and Immunology Program are offering Virtual (Telemedicine) Visits. If interested, you can inquire with our office about setting up a visit for your child. Below is more information regarding what is a virtual visit and how to know if visits will be covered by your insurance.
For technical support please contact 617-919-4390, 7a.m. – 6p.m. Monday – Friday with the exception of hospital holidays.
If two or more people plan to join the virtual visit from different locations, each person needs to have their own unique link. You cannot use the same link for 2 separate devices.
To receive an additional registration link, you will need to click on guest registration link at the bottom of the email and complete the form. You will then receive a separate email confirmation with a personal link to access the visit.
