Scheduled Clinic Video Visits

Clinic visits are available through UAB eMedicine, our telehealth technology, which allows a UAB Medicine health care provider to perform a basic physical exam, diagnose common medical conditions, manage complex care, and provide personalized treatment plans “face to face” using video technology or, in some cases, over the phone.

If you would like to schedule a video or phone visit with a provider please call your provider’s office directly or contact us at 205.934.9999 or toll-free at 1.800.822.8816.

If you have a scheduled clinic video or telephone visit, follow these steps to get started:
