Cardiac Care That Never Stops

At Brigham and Women's, we're here for our patients - especially during challenging times when you might need us most. With Brigham Health's Virtual Visits, there's no need to delay or avoid your cardiac care. Whether for an initial consult, second opinion or follow-up care, Virtual Visits give you a convenient way to connect with our team of cardiac specialists without leaving your home.

How Virtual Visits Work

All providers within the Heart and Vascular Center are conducting Virtual Visits for new patient appointments, surgical consults, follow-up visits, and second opinions. These one-on-one virtual appointments are available across all cardiac conditions and are a convenient way to begin – or continue – your care from the comfort and safety of your home.

All you need is a phone, smartphone, tablet or computer with a video camera to get started. Call or request an appointment online, and our team will guide you through the process.

"I can't be in the same room with my patients during a virtual visit, but there's a real closeness to meeting virtually. Patients can talk directly to their provider. There's a real opportunity to discuss what's really going on, and people should feel good about that."  – Dale S. Adler, MD
