We have an exciting announcement!
We are now offering Telehealth appointments that take place from the comfort of your own home. This means that if our office is closed (or if you simply feel more comfortable meeting with us virtually), you can now do so. Many consultations with Dr. Alan Leavitt can easily take place remotely. These visits use secure video methods so all your healthcare information is kept private.
How does it work?
Simply call the office or go to www.bayviewoptometrics.com to request a Telehealth appointment.
Our office personnel will determine what your eye care needs are. If a Telehealth appointment is selected, you will receive a link via text message or E mail shortly before your scheduled appointment. A smart phone will work best for your Telehealth appointment but a laptop or home computer will work as well.
