Virtual Care

Virtual Care Appointments – Now Available! 

We are open for patient care. We want you to know that you do not need to delay care during this cautious time. Your health is more important than ever! As always, Blue Ridge Health is your trusted provider for quality, affordable care in WNC. Please consider scheduling an appointment today and maintain ongoing conversations with your medical and behavioral health providers.

In order to serve you and your family best during the current phase of the COVID-19 outbreak, and in light of various “Stay home – stay safe” orders around the region, we are making virtual care easier to access than ever before!

Please Call Our Central Scheduling Office At 828-692-4289 – Or Your Local Practice. 

We recommend only virtual visits for required follow-ups, Medicare annual wellness visits, and most sick visits. You are encouraged to call us to determine if a virtual visit or in-person visit is right for you. 

If someone you know is in need of care but does not have a regular primary care or behavioral health provider, Blue Ridge Health is accepting new patients. Please encourage them to call us to schedule an appointment today!

Virtual Care Appointments – What To Expect

  • If you have a Smartphone, you will receive a text at your scheduled appointment time. Tap the link in the text message within 10 minutes of your appointment time. If you miss the text or do not tap the link in time, your provider will call you.
  • If you do not have a Smartphone, your provider will call you at the designated appointment time.
  • In some cases, there will be forms that you can fill out electronically to update the information we have on file. Please do your best to fill them out prior to your scheduled appointment. 

We encourage our patients to pursue needed medical and behavioral health care. Many insurance carriers are waiving co-pays at this time to encourage people to seek the care they need. Blue Ridge Health is here for you, and we appreciate your patience during this national emergency. More information on virtual care can be found here: https://www.brchs.com/care-comfort-your-home

Office Location Updates

NOTE: All visitors must be screened for COVID-19 prior to entry to any Blue Ridge Health facility. This will involve a temperature reading and brief screening questions. Those experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath are urged to call their practice prior to arrival.

In an effort to control the spread of COVID-19, the CDC now recommends that everyone wear a mask or cloth face covering when entering any public space. In an effort to preserve personal protective equipment, we ask that patients please bring a mask or cloth face covering to any visit to any of our practices.
