Willow Medical & Wellness is currently only offering appointments via telemedicine.

We will continue to re-assess this policy as more information becomes available. All of our providers will be available to continue your regularly scheduled appointments using telemedicine, including new patients, unless rescheduling is deemed appropriate.

Telephonic appointments can be arranged under special circumstances such as with Medicare patients or individuals that do not have access to telemed technology. Please call us with questions about your appointments if you have not already received a call from our office. We encourage you to keep your appointments via Telemed as your mental health is an absolute priority to us, especially during this pandemic.
