Telemedicine is a clinical consultation using videoconferencing technology. 

Use of Telemedicine can: 

  • Increase access to specialists across the province.
  • Reduce your patient’s travel time and expenses.
  • Provide care closer to home for your patient.
  • Enable family to be present during a consultation.

A telemedicine appointment is free to those with a valid OHIP card. This service is provided to all patients in the Sarnia-Lambton area. Being referred for a consult through Telemedicine is similar to being referred to a consult in person.
