Independent Health Foundation and Teladoc Join Efforts to Provide Medical Relief for All Western New Yorkers During Winter Storm Emergency

In response to the unprecedented winter storm that affected parts of western New York, Independent Health Foundation and Teladoc offered free consultations with Teladoc’s network for physicians to western New Yorkers who were unable to reach their primary care physicians. The service for non-emergency medical care was available through phone, secure online video and mobile applications 24 hours a day through Sunday, November 30. Teladoc provides timely access to high-quality medical consultations with U.S. board-certified, state-licensed physicians who can diagnose and treat many non-emergent medical issues.
