Geisinger Women's Health is now offering a faster and more convenient way to be seen by a Geisinger Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialist via telemedicine technology. With this technology, you will communicate with the MFM specialist via video conferencing. The specialist will see and hear you and you will be able to see and hear them using special video cameras, one in the primary care exam room, and the other in the MFM's office. Click to find a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist.
The benefits of a telemedicine appointment include:
- Faster appointment times without traveling to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville or Geisinger Maternal-Fetal Medicine - Forty Fort for your appointment
- Quicker appointment means more options and better care for mom and baby, as high-risk concerns are addressed sooner in the pregnancy
Telemedicine appointments for MFM services are available at the Geisinger - Lewistown, Geisinger - Tunkhannock, and Geisinger - Gray's Woods, Port Matilda clinic locations.
A grant from the Verizon Foundation supports telemedicine services for MFM at Geisinger.
