INTEGRIS Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute

Hepatitis C Available in Enid via Telemedicine

Telehealth is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communication to improve a patient’s health status. Telehealth allows for face-to-face interaction between you as a patient and an INTEGRIS Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute provider.

Effective treatments are available for hepatitis C patients, but they are not accessible to everyone and some do not have the knowledge to manage the side effects when treatments are available. This is why telehealth can help patients with hep C who would normally not seek treatment due to certain obstacles.

Telehealth helps improve the care of hep C patients in rural and underserved populations by providing special care via electronic means so patients can stay in touch with their providers.

The Hepatitis C Clinic is located at 2821 N. Van Buren Enid, OK 73703.
