Lee Health: Your Home for Online Care

Talk to a physician through our Lee TeleHealth service or MyChart to get the care you need from the safety of your own home.

Still Unsure?

Remember: You should use TeleHealth in place of an urgent care visit. You do not need an appointment, and you can log on anytime, day or night. You should use MyChart for a scheduled appointment in place of an in-person visit with your primary care doctor for general medical issues and discussion.

NOTE: Lee Health emergency rooms are safe, secure and still accepting patients. If you have a medical emergency—heart attack, stroke, severe injury or pain, or trouble breathing—please do not use MyChart or Lee TeleHealth. Call 911 immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.

Inpatient Telemedicine

Lee Health also provides telemedicine services in our hospitals. This allows patients to visit with specialists from all over the system to increase timely and effective care.

MyChart: Virtual Visits

Everyday health concerns, checkups, and illnesses don’t stop during difficult times. That’s why Lee Heath’s MyChart now offers virtual scheduled appointments with your Lee Physician Group physician so you can stay safe while getting the care you need. For more information, call 481-4111, and they will gladly walk you through the simple process.

Lee TeleHealth: Online Care When You Need it

Lee Health thanks our community for using its free Lee TeleHealth services during the past months. As we adapt to a new normal, Lee TeleHealth will reactivate its original $49 fee. This will help us ensure we are able to provide access to a physician at any time of day or night while eliminating insurance hurdles. We thank you for your support and understanding.

Our TeleHealth services feature 24/7 access to a physician for urgent care needs such as:

  • Cold and flu
  • Headaches
  • Stomach aches
  • Allergies
  • Sore throat
  • Certain injuries and other conditions that are not emergencies

TeleHealth physicians also help people who don’t have a primary care doctor, can’t get an appointment, or need prescription refills.

By using your phone, computer, or other digital device to virtually connect, you can save time, money, and avoid COVID-19 concerns.

Whether it’s an injury or a persistent symptom—a new app is making it easier to get the medical attention you need. “Certainly, if it’s something we can save people leaving time from work, that’s great. If it’s a mom whose got kids at home and she doesn’t want to leave sick kids, she can use it that way,” said Dr. Karen Calkins, a convenient care physician with Lee Health. Using your phone, computer, or iPad, Lee Telehealth connects patients virtually with a health expert of their choice. “It reaches the people in rural or farther away areas, so they don’t have to get in their car and drive an hour, wait at a clinic, they can just do it at the comfort of their home,” she said. Things like headaches, stomach aches, allergies, sore throat, flu-like symptoms, even injuries can all be diagnosed through Lee Telehealth. “You can definitely talk to the patient, you can see the patient, get clues from how they look, how they’re breathing, their cough, you can hear how they sound, and you can diagnose,” said Dr. Calkins. Doctors can also e-prescribe medication if necessary—but for things like stitches, x-rays, or more serious medical conditions, patients will need to be seen in person. “I think it’s a good option in certain circumstances,” she said. An option to help patients get quick medical help without having to go to a clinic.
