Telehealth overall is continuing to have its shine in the spotlight, transforming the way we’ve been handling routine medical care since the start of the pandemic. It proved to be a great and useful tool when the option to visit medical centers carried the risk of covid-19 infection. However, even today, as the risk for covid-19 is decreasing for those who are vaccinated, many patients prefer visiting with their medical staff in person. Most prefer the face-to-face or in-person visits because yes, it is both more personal, thorough and ultimately, better for the patients’ health.
Where in-person visits aren’t an option or available, Telehealth can be critical and a savior. It offers patients options for those in rural places to have access to medical help.
How can we help you make the most of your Telehealth visit?
Well, first, if you don’t have a doctor yet, let’s help you get one. We can look up the doctors or medical professionals in your plan or network that best fir your needs who also allow telemedicine appointments.
Remember, emergencies are still emergencies. The same rules pre-pandemic still apply: sudden chest pain, difficulty breathing? Call 911 right away in those cases.
Urgent, but not an emergency? Call your primary care provider’s office.
Once we’ve helped you secure your doctor and make the telemedicine appointment, it’s important to prepare for the conversation with your health care professional. That means, making a list of important issues you want to address, keeping track of symptoms, when it started and if it’s changed, maybe even take a photo to send to the doctor.
