A strong doctor-patient relationship is the foundation for high-quality patient care and reducing health care costs. Dr. Leon and his staff have implemented a telemedicine portal to support, not replace, certain traditional in-office consultations. Using this portal allows Dr. Leon to offer remote consultations for follow up visits, check-ups, prescription refills, and more when appropriate.
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of telecommunications technology to provide real-time health care to patients from the convenience of their home. These virtual visits are in place of a traditional visit to the clinic.
How is Telemedicine Delivered?
Telemedicine can be delivered using video-conferencing, audio communication, and/or text-messaging using mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers. Cardiology Associates of West Texas has a user-friendly, HIPAA compliant video conference portal to communicate with our patients. Patients can access our telemedicine features from any iPhone or computer with a web camera and Google Chrome.
Our process is very simple
- Set up an appointment by calling us at 325-944-1240
- You will be emailed or text messaged a link to our virtual portal.
- When it is time for your appointment, open the link on your phone or computer.

It’s that simple!
