The family healthcare clinics at McKenzie Health System have several options which allow you to connect with your primary care provider including televisits*, phone call consultations, and in person appointments.
Televisits are simply a way of connecting with your provider using a smart phone, tablet, or computer, from the safety and comfort of your home. McKenzie uses a program called “Healow” to connect with patients . This is a HIPAA secure program designed specifically for healthcare.
To schedule an appointment, simply call the clinic and staff will help you select an option and help you prepare for your visit.

Televisits are now andn option for some Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy appointments. Most insurance providers, including Medicare, now cover these televisit appointments the same way they do for in-person visits.
“We continue to look for new ways to provide care for our patients,” said Jenny Long, PT, DPT, Director of Rehabilitation Services and Physical Therapist for MHS. “We have many patients with rehabilitation needs and letting those needs go uncared for not only delays the healing process, but in some cases, it may be harmful. McKenzie has been using telemedicine for a number of years to successfully treat patients and now I’m excited that televisits are an option for some of our rehabilitation patients as well.”
Televisits offer patients a way to connect with a physical therapist using a smart phone, tablet or computer with a program called “QLIQ.” Physical therapists can demonstrate exercises and clients can do so in return, with the physical therapist offering instruction and updates. Both current and new patients are welcome to make an appointment at 810-648-0210; or they are welcome to call to determine if their needs can be met with telemedicine. In-person appointments are also available.
