      RGA TeleHealth

      TeleHealth

      RGA Telehealth is here! We know your digestive health symptoms don’t quarantine themselves in the face of COVID-19. We are still here for you. RGA Telehealth is a secure online, web-based appointment that lets you connect with your RGA physician or nurse practitioner for consultation and diagnosis, and to discuss treatment options. This is available for current RGA patients and for new visits.

      RGA Telehealth visits will work on both Android and iPhone phones, tablets, and computers. They can be scheduled online at rockfordgi.com or by calling 815-397-7340. From there, you will be given the option to schedule a virtual visit and we will send you instructions on how to install the program on your device.

      Most insurance networks have expanded benefits amid the national COVID-19 pandemic to cover virtual/digital health care services (also known as telehealth or telemedicine). Check with your insurance company to see if your plan is included.

      RGA Telehealth is meant to give you the same time and attention you would expect at a clinic visit. Our goal is to always provide exceptional care and exceptional caring, now using a different platform that is secure and more convenient during this unpredictable time.

      It is essential to seek help for GI symptoms even while the shelter in place order is in effect. These symptoms can be signs of more serious issues, and a virtual visit can help determine what – if any – next steps are needed and help ease your concerns. Please also know you can call us anytime at 815-397-7340 with additional questions or concerns.
