THE OFFICE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK WITH NO SET DATE AS OF YET TO REOPEN.
VIRTUAL TELEMEDICINE, NON-FACE TO FACE "VISITS" ARE AVAILABLE
INSTRUCTIONS FOR VIRTUAL VISITS:
Virtual telemedicine visits are being covered by all major insurance companies and Medicare. These visits are available via FaceTime (most commonly used and preferred platform) or Skype using real time audio-visual communications. If you do not have FaceTime (ie you do not have an Apple phone or iPad) or Skype, an audiovisual virtual visit can be obtained using an app hosted by Dr. Leu's electronic medical records system and downloaded on your smart phone (the app is called PocketPatient).
Virtual visits work well for acne, rashes, and checks of specific lesions. If you are interested in this type of visit, please call the office at 973-925-7077, press 1, and leave a message stating you would like a virtual or telemedicine visit. Dr. Leu will call you via FaceTime, Skype, or the app. Your insurance will be billed just like for a regular visit. These "visits" can accommodate either a new issue or previously discussed issue, and prescriptions can be sent electronically to your pharmacy as needed. If you are a new patient, you will first need to speak to the medical assistant to enter insurance information and medical information.
Instructions for using the PocketPatient app from Modernizing Medicine, Dr. Leu's electronic medical records system:
1) Download the PocketPatient app on your smart phone or tablet. When you call to make your appointment, make sure Dr. Leu's office has your cell phone number.
2) When Dr. Leu is ready for the virtual visit, you will receive a text message and/or e-mail indicating this.
3) Select the link in the text message which will bring you into the app.
4) Enter your last name and date of birth on the app and the visit will begin.
