The Community Health Center in Cowley County is now providing Telehealth, a more convenient appointment option which allows patients to have a visit with their provider from the comfort of their home or office via home computer or laptop with webcam and microphone, ipad or smartphone. To find out how to get setup for Telehealth visits and schedule an appointment with your provider, please call the office at 620-221-3350. Please note that in the event of an emergency you should not use Telehealth, if you need emergent care call 911 to seek immediate medical help.
You can use Telehealth appointments for follow-up visits, we prefer that new patients get established with our providers prior to scheduling Telehealth appointments. Please note this is a billable service, if this is not covered by your insurance, you will be responsible for the charges.
