Telehealth

The new way to meet your virtual pelvic health care needs!

The impact of COVID-19 has been far and wide reaching.  For many of us our day to day living has changed and the way we normally go about things such as medical and health appointments.

Telehealth is a cost effective and well received by patients delivery mode of health care and afford us the ability to stay at home and receive evidenced based, excellent quality healthcare in the comfort of your favourite lounge chair via telecommunications technology.

"Patients are loving 'tele-pelvichealth' with timely access to my care post surgery they wouldn't normally have had access too.... Patients are also enjoying being in the safety and comfort of their own home to discuss these complex and personal issues....... I've been able to help patients set up exercise program in their home and correct technique and add progressions all while using their phone!"
