Can You Still Schedule a Telehealth Appointment with The Right Time Providers?
Yes, you can!
When the coronavirus pandemic began, the providers at The Right Time health centers knew that quarantining, isolating, and social distancing were all going to make it harder for patients to get their preferred methods of birth control. As a result, those health centers that were not already offering telehealth appointments and services began doing so. Offering telehealth appointments (a.k.a. appointments that take place either over the phone or on a computer) was a way to meet their patients’ needs while also helping stop the spread of COVID-19.
Shockingly, this was over two and a half years ago, and people feel differently about the coronavirus today than they did back then. While masking and social distancing are still big parts of many of our lives, many folks are more comfortable being in close contact with others again (such as at the movies, at restaurants, or at sporting events).
This seems a good time to make sure everyone knows they still have access to telehealth appointments with The Right Time providers. This type of appointment is not going away, and you can choose to schedule a telehealth appointment instead of an in-person appointment for whatever reason. In fact, some common reasons people schedule telehealth appointments instead of in-person ones are because they can’t get childcare, they have to be on a college campus all day, or they don’t get a lunch break at work.
The Right Time health centers are dedicated to removing barriers to contraceptive services, and this is just one way we do that.
