Dr. Steencken is Available Wherever You Are!
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, insurance companies are encouraging use of telemedicine. As such, during regular office hours we are temporarily able to schedule you for a video visit and bill your insurance. We use Doxy.me to connect via video chat. You are encouraged to visit that website (click here) to test your device and make sure permissions for your camera, microphone, and speaker are turned ON for video chat to ensure an easy connection.
For appointments after-hours or on Holidays, we have a "virtual practice" set up at , which allows you to directly schedule your own appointment! See below for more information.
When you're sick, wouldn't it be great to be able to just pick up your phone and speak directly to a doctor? Now you can! Telemedicine is a great option for evaluating simple problems such a cough or sinus infection, or for general medical advice when your schedule is too packed to get to your doctor. It’s also a great option for problems that come up after hours when our office is not open. For more serious problems such as chest pain, shortness of breath or stroke symptoms, call 911 immediately.
To get started, all you need is a smartphone, tablet or computer with a camera and internet access. Click here to go directly to Dr. Steencken's practice page at . The practice is listed as sports medicine, but all visits are with Dr. Steencken and his years of ER and urgent care experience, and particularly in this time of need he is available for any urgent care matter that is reasonable for telemedicine.
Direct payment with a credit card is required for this service, however the cost is often less than a copay. If you have an HSA or FSA you may be able to use those funds or your insurance may reimburse you for the visit. Refer to your insurance policy or plan administrator for more information.
