TeleMedicine: A new approach in the COVID-19 era

In these trying times, nearly all businesses across the US and around the world are seeing major declines, especially businesses that have foot traffic.  For medical practices, the need for our patients and staff to shelter at home has stifled our ability to provide the continuity and quality of care that we are accustomed to delivering to our patients day-in and day-out.

We all hope that this pandemic will be over soon so we can get back to normal life, but until then, the need for our health to be managed doesn’t go away.

To ensure that our patients still have access to our doctors, we are implementing virtual appointments, also known as telemedicine.  Telemedicine creates a connection over the web that allows for virtual visits between our patients and doctors.  While there are still challenges with telemedicine since diagnostic testing and laboratory assessments are not included in virtual visits, doctors can still assess symptoms and can ask and answer questions. Doctors are also able to prescribe medications and provide medication refills, if indicated, to help keep patients healthy throughout this challenging and unpredictable time.

To learn more about our telemedicine services please call our offices to request an appointment.  Our staff is available to answer your questions and to provide details so you can see your doctor virtually.  Thanks to technology, we can all work together to stay safe and stay healthy.

Until this pandemic becomes history, please take care of you and your family and follow the guidance provided by local and federal mandates.  We will all get through this together.
