Telehealth Now Available!
We are pleased to announce that most Graybill doctors now offer telehealth (also called telemedicine)! Through a service called Doxy.me, you can meet with your doctor via telephone or video, from any location using your smart phone, laptop or other smart device. As well, Doxy.me offers a convenient option for those who are self-distancing due to coronavirus concerns.
Doxy.me is secure, encrypted, and HIPAA-compliant so your protected health information (PHI) will not be compromised.

- General check-ups for patients typically seen 3 or more times a year to maintain their health status.
All Graybill physicians have expanded their available appointment hours to meet these additional needs.
Flu shots are still available. An annual flu shot is your best protection against the flu. Health authorities recommend that most people aged six months and older be vaccinated against the flu. Do this as soon as possible because it takes about two weeks for your body to build up enough antibodies to fight the flu. To get your annual flu shot ask your Primary Care Physician or visit his or her office 9-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m.
