Behavioral Health In-Person vs. Virtual Visits - How to Choose Care
Your MetroHealth Behavioral Health care team is always here for you, whether it’s in-person or through a virtual visit.
A virtual visit—sometimes referred to as a telehealth visit—lets you meet with your health care provider by video or phone. This allows you to get the care you need, when you need it.
Benefits of a Virtual Visit
- Meet with your provider in the privacy of your home.
- No need to travel or deal with parking.
- Avoid coming into contact with other patients who may be sick.
