Online Video Conferencing

Due to the unique challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has created, Dr. Patronella is now offering the option of a preliminary ONLINE VIDEO CONFERENCE at no charge via Facetime or Google Hangouts to accommodate the needs and preferences of his patients. Dr. Patronella has offered this in the past for a fee of $250 to help assist in unique situations for those out-of-town and those for whom an person consultation is not so easily accessible. We are now happy to assist you during this time by providing this option to all local and regional patients.

The purpose of Dr. Patronella’s online video conference will be to review a person’s concerns and goals and to provide possible options for treatment as well as cost in anticipation of a thorough in-office consultation and examination at a later date.

To schedule your online video conference, please contact Dr. Patronella’s patient coordinator Eva via email at eva.cadena@acps.com, or call 713.354.5122 or 713.799.9999.
