We are now offering Telemedicine services at OnPoint!

What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is a way to virtually connect a patient to their healthcare provider. The provider can remotely diagnose and treat patients by means of telecommunications technology.
Do I need special equipment?
Any smartphone or tablet with text, video, and audio capabilities can be used.
How do I get connected?
Contact our office at (720) 738-1122 to initiate the registration. Our staff will send you a text message with a link to download the app and register for a free account. Then you can start exchanging private, secure messages via the app to schedule and conduct the electronic visit.
Is it HIPAA compliant?
Yes! Using our Spruce Health app, you will register for a unique user ID and password which acts as a portal between the patient and OnPoint Urgent Care.
What is the cost?
It is free to download the app. The visit itself will be billed to your insurance at our contracted urgent care rate as it would if you were being seen in the clinic.
