I now provide on-line office visits for buprenorphine maintenance. These are internet-based visits, utilizing an encrypted telemedicine platform which meets all Federal confidentiality standards. The visits can be held with any internet-ready device, including smart phones, laptops or desktops and require only a strong WI-FI signal.  Telemedicine is ideal for patients who live in areas without available treatment and for people who can’t take off time from their jobs for doctor appointments.
