Facility-to-facility video visits
Appointments for Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation are offered via facility-to-facility video visits, which reduce the need to travel far and enable patients to receive care close to home.
For a facility-to-facility video visit, patients arrive to the clinic and a nurse connects them with a specialist by live video. Our innovative technology uses a Bluetooth stethoscope, a USB otoscope and high definition cameras that can move and zoom in for a high-quality physical exam and personal conversation with the specialist.
Video appointments are currently offered at select locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Learn more about facility-to-facility video appointments.
Not all services and procedures are offered in this location. In certain cases, you may be connected to services at other Mayo Clinic Health System locations.
