What is Video Conferencing?
Video conferencing allows two or more people to attend a meeting electronically using video, audio, and other visual tools to interact. VIP Vascular uses Zoom.us to facilitate our online consultations. Zoom.us makes it possible for us to host a meeting that allows Dr. Heide to see and speak with clients, share materials, and use a whiteboard, all in a secure environment that includes password protection for your privacy.
