Let’s get started, we have a long way to go.

As a chief resident in our trauma service, I saw a patient in the clinic from South America with a very angulated and poorly healed tibial shaft fracture. He had been seen by several other Orthopaedic surgeons in the past; however because he was uninsured and his complex injury none would agree to treat him.
ย 
Despite this, I was confident I could help him through a complex surgery involving removing a wedge of bone at the fracture site and realigning the tibia anatomically, and finally placing a long titanium rod down the inner canal.
ย 
Although it took almost 6 hours of difficult surgery, ultimately we were able to achieve an anatomic reduction and fixation of the deformity. He subsequently was seen in the clinic in the post-operative period and went on to fully recover.

What is Concierge Telemedicine?

Concierge medicine is a highly personalized form of private practice, that bridges the divide that existed between patients and their preferred doctor, due to the complexity of medical insurance plans.

Telemedicine is a powerful communication tool that has allowed patients from almsot anywhere in the world to connect in real-time with their doctor, without the hassles of international travel – especially under these distressing times.

Modern medicine and technology have now joined hands to combine on-demand online scheduling and synchronous video conferencing – to connect you to the best medical minds that money can buy, at your time.

The VIOS Clinic is your best option for Concierge Telemedicine services, to help you get priority online appointments and convenient virtual visits by board certified specialists, without either of you two wasting time getting to a hospital or clinic.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide in-home health services from our virtual care platform.

Which Membership Plan is right For me?

Each patient’s health requirements, and expectations are unique to them.

You may begin with the ‘Monthly’ plan to start things off and see how you get along with your chosen specialist. If it is a good fit, you can always select the Annual membership options for a more value-added concierge experience.

You can email us at [email protected] and we can work something out.
