Telehealth Clinic Visits Are Now Available.
With the current status of COVID-19 and the need to social distance and quarantine from others, GCMC has created a Telehealth system to connect the Philipsburg and Drummond Clinic practitioners with their patients virtually.
Telehealth visits can be scheduled for your medication or blood pressure follow up, mental health care, follow up of lab results and many other health concerns.
However annual wellness exams, acute accidents or injuries and acute concerns, like chest pain, abdominal pain or respiratory distress must be seen in person.
In order to make a Clinic Telehealth visit, you mush have one of the following: smart phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer with a microphone and camera that is connected to the internet. You must also be able to receive email or text messages.
To schedule a Telehealth appointment:
Please first contact GCMC at (406)-859-3271 and request to make a Telehealth appointment. You will be scheduled a day and time for your appointment, and further information will follow for links and instructions on how you will connect with your provider.
