During the covid-19 shelter in place, we are offering Televisits to continue your care
Peninsula Ophthalmology Group cares about you and your family’s well being. Due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, we are temporarily changing our office visit format. We are excited to offer you Telehealth Office Visits. To schedule a visit, please call our office at (650) 697-3200.
We are accepting both new patients and established patients
If you are a new patient, please call our office in advance to schedule your appointment. We will need to verify your insurance information and you may need to provide an e-mail address where we can send information to you prior to your visit.
Before your visit
Before your televisit, you may want to test your computer and enter the waiting room. You can enter the virtual waiting room by going to this link: https://pogvision.doxy.me. Once you enter your name you will see a button in the lower left hand corner of the page that says “Pre-call Test.” Click that button to test your connection quality and Please note that we are using Doxy, which works in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Apple Safari. There is no application or “App” for Doxy, it runs in the web browser. If you need to install any of these web browsers, you can get them from the following links:
Mozilla Firefox: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/
Google Chrome: https://www.google.com/chrome/
Please note that if you have an Apple Macintosh you already have Safari. However, you can also get Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox from the App Store. The Doxy program itself does not require anything to be downloaded to your computer, but you need to use a supported browser. If you have an Android tablet or phone, you already have Google Chrome. If you have an Apple iPhone or iPad, you already have Safari. Sometimes this might be easier than using a computer because with a phone you’re always sure that you will be able to use a camera and a microphone. Please feel free to call our office staff before your visit and they can assist you with getting access to the virtual waiting room.
