Telehealth/Telemedicine/Virtual Visits

Televisits offer a glimpse of the future of medicine in situations where medical professionals or health providers may not be able to provide care in person. Televisits are an alternative to in person interventions from healthcare providers. Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute is a provider offering virtual visits during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Learn more from the recent News4Jax story regarding televisits here.

JOI Physicians and all of the JOI Rehab Centers are providing Televisits for New and Existing Patients. To schedule, please call 904-JOI-2000.
