Virtual Visits

The URPG Rheumatology Clinic is pleased to announce that we will now be offering virtual visits with Dr. Shiner through the telemedicine company Chiron.  Secure video visits allow you to receive the same quality care as you do in the clinic.

We understand that many of our patients have challenges with regard to time or travel that limit your ability to come into clinic to be seen by your provider.  With this technology, you will be able to video chat on your computer or mobile device with Dr. Shiner, during regular practice hours, to discuss your health concerns.  Virtual visits are ideal for medication questions, arthritis flares and to discuss lab results.  For patients who live far away and cannot easily travel, we may be able to utilize this service for some follow up visits.

There is a fee of $40 for virtual visits, which will not be billed through your insurance, although that may be possible sometime in the future.  If you have a need to use this service, please call the office at 940-764-5350 and we can set up a virtual visit.

How it works:

  1. Use the Chiron Health app on your computer, tablet or smartphone
  2. Schedule your video visit appointment with our staff
  3. Confirm your information when you log into Chiron Health
  4. Log in 15 minutes before your video visit and be prepared to video chat with your doctor
