Tata Medical Center has initiated Telemedicine services to help registered patients connect with doctors when it is difficult for them to come to the hospital. Video or audio-based tele-consults will be scheduled based on your request, and doctors assessments and orders will be emailed to you.

- If the physician feels that teleconsultation is not appropriate for you, your teleconsultation request may be cancelled and adjusted against an in-person visit to the hospital.
