Ochsner Health: Safety Measures


Ochsner Health: Return to Clinic

3 Options to Check in For Your Appointment

With mobile check-in and curbside arrival, you have the option to wait comfortably in your car, and we'll keep you updated while you're waiting.

1. MyOchsner mobile check-in lets you skip the registration desk. Simply complete ePre-Check before your appointment and click "I'm Here" in the app when you park. We'll be alerted when you've arrived.

2. Not using MyOchsner or don't see the mobile check-in option? With curbside arrival, you can call to let us know you've arrived. Look for the banners with the phone number to call.

3. Visit the registration desk to check in. For your safety, sneeze guards are installed at all registration desks.

We’re taking extra steps to make your comfort and safety our top priority.

Virtual Visit Appointments

We’re offering virtual visit/online appointments for primary and specialty care.

We have additional virtual visit offerings for some appointments and are continuing to offer this option for patients who would prefer to see their provider virtually.

During your virtual visit, you and your provider will meet using video on a phone, iPad, or tablet. Your provider can answer any questions you have, address your healthcare needs and adjust your medications if needed.

What you need for a virtual visit:

  • An iPhone, iPad, or Android device
  • The MyChart app downloaded on your device

For common illnesses, urgent care needs, and behavioral health and well being you can also see a provider from home, anytime with an Ochsner Connected Anywhere virtual visit.

When you combine 24/7 virtual visits with the Ochsner Connected Anywhere Health Kit you get unparalleled convenience without leaving home.
