Telehealth keeps you healthy and safe

A telehealth visit by telephone or video allows you to speak to a provider from anywhere, saving you time and a trip to the clinic.  Our Call Center operators help you make either a telehealth visit or a clinic appointment if your provider decides to see you or your child in-person.

What happens if I am late to my video visit?
Our staff will check to see if you have joined the visit 20 minutes before your scheduled time. If you have joined the visit during that time, stay in the virtual waiting room as you do not need to do anything else. If you have not joined the visit 20 minutes prior to your scheduled time, a Valley Community Healthcare staff member will try to call you 2-3 times to make sure you will be on time for your visit. If we cannot reach you, and you have not joined your video visit by 5 minutes after your scheduled time, you will be considered late and need to call us at 818-763-8836 and reschedule your appointment.
