What is a Virtual Visit?
Whether you need a follow up with your PCP, a specialist visit, or immediate care, Privia providers can connect you with the care you need at your convenience. Meet with a board-certified provider with your mobile phone, tablet, or computer without stepping foot in their office.
For more information and to view an explainer video, see our virtual visits page here.

Why can’t I connect to my visit?
Open your email and click the “Start Visit” button or go to your text message and click the link in your text message. If you already have the myPrivia app downloaded, the visit should automatically launch within the myPrivia app.
Why can’t I see or hear my provider?
Remember to use a device with a webcam, microphone and strong internet connection. If prompted by your device, be sure to ‘allow’ the technology to access your webcam and microphone.
When will I receive a confirmation message for my visit?
We will send a message to the email account or cell phone you have on file with our office. Be sure to complete the check in steps as prompted by the message. If you cannot locate your confirmation message, contact our office and we will send you another virtual visit link.
When I try to launch my visit on my mobile device and click “I already have the app” it does not take me anywhere and I get stuck on this screen. How do I get into my visit?
If you get stuck on this screen and already have the myPrivia app downloaded, scroll up to the top of the page and you should see the myPrivia app appear with the option to “OPEN” on the right hand side. Click “OPEN” to proceed (see screenshot below).
How do I improve the video quality or my connection?
Poor video quality is usually caused by a slow internet connection. You will need an absolute minimum internet connection of 20 mbps to do a virtual doctor’s visit. To test your internet connection speed, visit https://www.speedtest.net/ and press Go. If the test says your speed is under 20 mbps and you’re using wifi, try using a wired internet connection or restarting your router.
