First, you’ll need to download the Zoom Client for Meetings app to your phone or computer. Then, just click on the link in the email confirmation to attend your appointment at the scheduled time.

Please login several minutes before your appointment to make sure everything is working on your end. To get audio to work, click “use computer audio” or “use internet audio,” if prompted.

Make sure you are in a quiet, private place with a strong internet connection at the time of your appointment. If you have headphones, that helps with the audio.
