Video Conference visits provided by Michigan Avenue Primary Care


Your Telemedicine Visit

Convenient medical treatment for a wide range of conditions.

We're pleased to offer video conference visits for adult patients (18 and older), physically present in Illinois, for conditions that can be managed without an in-person physical exam. Some chronic conditions may require home readings (like blood pressure readings) or periodic office visits for blood tests.
