We know that times are unpredictable right now, but what is predictable is Norman Regional Health System’s commitment to keeping you well and stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Over the last few weeks, we’ve ramped up our telemedicine offerings so you and your loved ones can receive the medical care you need without leaving your home. This service is available to new and existing patients.
Whether you need urgent, primary or specialty care, you can visit a provider from anywhere in Oklahoma using a smartphone, tablet or computer with a web camera. Setup is simple and takes just a few minutes.
Through Norman Regional Virtual Care, board-certified providers are available on demand 24 hours a day, seven days a week without the need for an appointment. Each visit costs a flat rate of $55 with no insurance required. These are for minor illnesses, including:
- Abdominal pain
- Pink eye
- Ear infections
- Sinus infections
- Cold sores
Primary and Specialty Care
We now offer the following services through telemedicine. These are scheduled appointments during regular business hours and are billed like a typical in-person clinic visit through your insurance.
- Diabetes education and nutrition
- Endocrine surgery
- General surgery
- Medical weight loss
- Obstetrics and gynecology
- Occupational medicine
- Outpatient rehabilitation, including occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy
- Primary care
- Surgical weight loss
(Please note: Not all Norman Regional providers offer telemedicine services and this list may continue to change. Please check with your provider.)
Telemedicine appointments for primary and specialty care services are great for monitoring chronic conditions, discussing medication changes, conducting follow-up or new patient appointments, performing depression screenings, discussing post-operative care after uncomplicated surgeries and for referral requests.
