Telemedicine offers patients the convenience of a doctor's visit without leaving their home. This is great for patients who live far away in rural areas, or have to drive a long way to do a Doctor's appointment. The idea is simple, you meet online in a virtual office, where both you and the doctor speak through webcams. The virtual office is hosted on a HIPAA compliant secure server so your personal health information, diagnosis, and dialogue are safe.
New patients should still do their first visit in-office, which typically takes 1 hour. However, we want to give existing patients the option of telemedicine to receive the same level of care as they would from an in office visit.
Another great reason for telemedicine is that we offer discount pricing for telemedicine appointments. Also, insurance is starting to recognize the convenience and benefits of telemedicine, and therefore is increasing coverage and reimbursements for telemedicine doctor's visits.
Telemedicine is the future of medicine, and we are excited to offer this feature, read below for the requirements for telemedicine.
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the care you took over my appointment today. I am very grateful for your high standard of care.
I needed clarification after the appointment and felt at ease to email her and received a fast response.
Thank you so much for fitting us in today, don't know what we'd have done without you. My daughter is quite timid, but your doctor was brilliant with her.
