Business people - video conference callDid you know ART offers video conferencing to its patients at satellite locations?

Video conferencing is available for patients that go to the Huntsville, Montgomery, and Tuscaloosa offices. It is a simple process; patients go to their location of choice and are placed in a room while our staff calls the Birmingham office and connects the patient to the doctor through a remote video.

This is a very convenient way for the patient to meet with their doctor without spending the time and effort to drive to the Birmingham office. However, this option is mainly used for pregnant patients that have return visits, upcoming IVF cycles, etc.

Our hope is that patients get the perception that this is a “personal” or “formal” visit, as our physicians can actually sense facial expressions and body language to gather a patient’s thoughts or feelings.

We encourage new patient visits be performed in Birmingham so you will have an opportunity to become familiar with the Birmingham facility, care providers and location for weekend services.
