Televisit Instructions for weekend medical coverage
A televisit is a 2-way audio/video connection between you and your doctor using either a camera on your computer or your cell phone (sorry, older "flip" phones won't work for this).
Televisits are billed to you or your insurance in the same manner as a standard office visit, and the same co-pays and deductibles will apply.
For weekend coverage, we recommend Doxy.Me. This is easy to use, works on all devices (Apple and Android smartphones, as well as any laptop computer), and is made for medical use (i.e. HIPAA privacy compliant):

Also, try to avoid bright lighting behind you (e.g. windows or lights). Front lighting is best.
