Telemedicine is a method of communication which allows us to interact face-to-face with our patients using technology. It allows our patients to sit safely in the comfort of their own home while meeting with one of our providers. Just like being in person, you will discuss your symptoms, problems, and other concerns with us using a video, app, web-based platform, or even an email. At the completion of your visit, we will discuss any diagnosis, review treatment options, and write you a prescription if it is determined necessary.
How Does Telemedicine Operate?
Telemedicine entertains an incredible supplemental care solution for many of the concerns for which you usually visit our clinic. However, this approach is not suitable for emergencies like lacerations, heart attacks, strokes, or broken bones.
During your virtual consultation with us, we will examine your condition. We may ask you to demonstrate a variety of movements, walking, moving from sitting to standing, range of motion, as well as flexion and extension of joints. We may ask to examine any swelling or edema, any skin rashes or lesions, or healing wounds.
