  2. After you check in, go to “Surveys” in the menu (listed on the left or by clicking the menu icon) and complete the Wellbeing Assessment survey (if applicable).

Visit our Accessing Your Appointment page for more information.

How to get the most out of your telehealth appointment

To get the most out of your appointment, find a private location where you can speak confidentially with your provider without being overheard or disturbed. If you live with others, ask them to respect your privacy during your appointment.

To increase confidentiality, some patients / clients find it helpful to wear headphones, use a fan or other form of white noise, or find a location outside of their home to talk, such as their car.
