With advancing technology, we are able today to provide services remotely as it may be difficult for all patients to access our clinics. CBS offers virtual consultations to out of town or overseas patients for primary consultation or second opinion. This service cannot be provided unless you have the appropriate imaging (MRI, CT scan or X-rays). Ideally, imaging should be no older than 6-12 months.
Fees apply for virtual consultations as, unfortunately, insurance companies have yet to address this new trend in health care delivery. A consultation (review of imaging, medical history/records and conference) is $312, due upon scheduling.
Two virtual consultation options exist:
1. Video Conferencing
For this, you will need to have images on disk that can be played on your computer. You will also need an email address and a computer with a webcam and microphone. Please have completed our patient questionnaire in advance and call our office at 301-585-7900 to schedule your conference with Dr. Amini.
2. Phone Consultations
For this option, please follow the instructions below.
Please email or mail us a copy of your most recent images (such as MRI, CT or Xrays). Envelopes should be clearly labeled "Virtual Consultation." Please note, disks or images cannot be returned so do not send originals.
