Telemedicine is a visit that is done using audio/video conferencing over the phone or the internet to evaluate, diagnose and care for patients at a distance.
The patient and our office will communicate using a telephone, a personal computer with a webcam or a smart mobile device with a built-in video camera.
Trying out a new way to see your doctor can be a little scary. We will be glad to explain the details of telemedicine and answer any questions that you have.
Once you get comfortable with the approach, you will enjoy all of the benefits.
Less exposure to illness – While we take great care to keep patients from passing illness to each other, the fact is that doctor’s offices are full of sick people. With a video visit, there’s no chance that you’ll catch something from another patient.
No transportation time or costs – When you see your doctor on your mobile device or computer, you can save money on gas, and public transportation.
No need to take time off of work – You can schedule your appointment during a break, or before or after work. You can do the visit from anywhere that you feel offers you enough privacy. There’s no need to waste your precious paid time off.
Eliminate child or elder care issues – If you have the responsibility for caring for children or older adults, finding someone to fill in can be a challenge, as can bringing them along. Telemedicine lets you see your doctor while managing your family responsibilities.
You are able to see us as often as you need to.
Is it Safe:
We realize that not every medical situation is right for an audio/video visit.
We know when it is safe and effective to conduct an encounter using telemedicine.
Privacy and Security:
We will be using a telemedicine solution designed specifically to protect patient information and meet the strict standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, known as HIPAA for short.
Our office will verify eligibility for telemedicine before the visit. If the visit is approved, it will not cost you anything more than an in-person visit would under their coverage.
