Sound Clinical Medicine, PS is open during the Covid-19 pandemic. If you have already established yourself as a patient of this clinic, you can choose to have a TeleMedicine visit with Dr. Michael Wingren or with Nurse Practitioner Kristin Sanchez.
Technology provides a new way to have a Medical Appointment, and requires some advance preparation. Read all of the information on this page to learn how to prepare for this appointment. We suggest that downloading the app onto a mobile device is a bit easier, overall, than setting up the software on a desktop computer.
Payment. TeleMedicine is supported by many insurance companies, Medicare, and the Department of Labor and Industries. We also accept payment by credit card.
Appointments. Call our Clinic to schedule a TeleMedicine appointment. Follow the steps listed below, to set up your Technology. At least 10-15 minutes before your appointment time, please sign in to the app or go to the URL and wait in the "virtual waiting room."
Set up the Technology in advance of your appointment. After making your first TeleMedicine appointment, follow the steps below, to download the app onto your cell phone or tablet or to download the software onto your computer. That will enable you to appear promptly for your TeleMedicine appointment. For subsequent TeleMedicine appointments, you'll use the same app or URL that you have already set up.
Computer Requirements: camera, speakers and microphone. The computer you use for the TeleMedicine visit needs to have a camera, microphone and speakers. These features are usually built-in to a smart phone or tablet, and are also built-in to many, but not all, laptop computers. These features may not be built-in to a desktop computer. Even if your computer has speakers (and you can listen to music on it) don't assume that it has a camera or a microphone--check, in advance, to make sure. If you plan to use a desktop computer, make sure these devices are built-in, or plug them into the USB ports of the computer.
Mobile Device. To use a Mobile Device (smartphone or tablet) for TeleMedicine, download the "VSee Clinic" app, then launch the app. Ask for the Room Code at the time you make your appointment. (click button at right for instructions)

The website you reach will prompt you to download the needed software and check the camera, microphone and speaker settings. (click button at right for instructions)
