What to Expect

No driving. No traffic. No waiting rooms. Just quality care from dedicated specialists.

Nod Specialists only treats patients age 16 or over. We DO NOT treat acute emergencies. Instead, you will need to go immediately to your nearest emergency room.

A Virtual Specialty Practice

Nod is an innovative specialty practice focusing on delivering premier Infectious Disease, Allergy/Immunology, and Nephrology treatment. Our goal is to increase access, improve cost-efficiency, and provide high-quality outcomes for patients who need timely care.

Virtual visits (or telemedicine) enable providers to use online, video chats to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients without geographic limitations. With Nod Specialists evaluation and treatment can be conducted in all settings, including homes, assisted living facilities, and rural area medical centers.

What is a Virtual Visit?

A virtual visit is much like a regular doctor’s office visit except that instead of a waiting room full of sick people and being left alone in a cold exam room, you get to see a highly-qualified specialist physician from the comfort of your current location. No extra travel. No extra hassle. However, virtual visits aren’t for every condition.

What Insurances Do We Accept?

Nod Specialists currently accept all major commercial insurance providers and most Medicaid and Medicare plans (with some exceptions).  to offer coverage for our patients. Stay tuned for updates or call us to find out if we are contracted with your insurance plan.
