Video Visits On Demand

Get healthcare from a Henry Ford doctor, anywhere, anytime you need it.

Video on Demand

When you’re sick, seeing your regular primary care doctor is always the best option, but life doesn’t always make that possible. Between busy schedules, illnesses and injuries, you might not be able to get into the doctor’s office when you need care. That’s why we offer Henry Ford Video Visits On Demand.

A Video Visits On Demand is a convenient way to connect online with a Henry Ford, board-certified, doctor right from your smartphone, tablet or computer with a web camera. It all begins through your MyChart account.
