Telemedicine or telehealth refers to digital communication between a doctor and a patient. The doctor-patient relationship and confidentiality remain completely intact. Using telemedicine during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic has helped new and current patients get the necessary medical care and attention they need while unable to be physically present in the clinic.
How Telemedicine WorksFor a telemedicine appointment, you will need access to a phone or video communication device. After scheduling a consultation, one of our doctors will reach out to you to discuss you concerns and health needs. While a video call cannot supplement a physical examination or procedure, it is extraordinarily beneficial in acquiring a thorough medical history, discussing past interventions, and following up on subjective symptoms of pain and function. Furthermore, medications can be ordered, emergent presentations can be triaged, and follow-ups for in-person visits and procedures can be scheduled.
