Understanding telehealth

Telehealth services are medical services that take place through virtual means. Depending on the appointment, you can access telehealth through a variety of technology, including computers, smartphones, and tablets.

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased awareness of telehealth services, but in actuality these kinds of appointments have taken place for decades. One of the major benefits of telehealth appointments is that they keep you from being exposed to or exposing others to transmissible illnesses, making them ideal if you’re immunocompromised or during an outbreak of the flu or another illness.

Additionally, telehealth appointments are comfortable and convenient. Getting a telehealth appointment makes it easier to access healthcare if you have a difficult time leaving your home or live a long way from our office.

Services you can get through telehealth

Our providers offer a number of services via telehealth appointments. These include:

Diagnosis and treatment

Chronic condition medical management

Follow-up appointment after surgery

While you're recovering from surgery, you might not feel up to coming into the office for a follow-up visit. Luckily, we can often do these as telehealth appointments.

Health counseling

We offer counseling that helps you improve your physical health and overall wellness through telehealth.

Getting your telehealth appointment

In many ways, telehealth appointments are very similar to in-office appointments, only they take place within the privacy and comfort of your own home.

Your telehealth visit typically lasts from half an hour to one hour, and what happens at the appointment is tailored to the reason for your appointment and your personal needs. Usually, your provider starts out the appointment by assessing your overall health by asking you questions, then performing a remote exam.

Your provider develops a plan, documenting your next steps of treatment based on the appointment. If necessary, they can prescribe medicine, refer you to a local specialist, or arrange follow-up visits over telehealth or in-office.

With telehealth services, getting high quality medical care is more convenient, safe, and accessible than ever. To find out if your medical need can be served through a telehealth appointment, contact our office
