Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a newer branch of medicine that’s based on convenience, privacy, and cost savings. Rather than going into the clinic when you’re sick, where you’re going to be exposed to more germs, you can simply schedule a telemedicine evaluation with your dedicated physician with whom you’ve been established.You receive the same compassionate care you’d get during a traditional in-office visit, without having to leave your home or office. Instead, you simply log in to a secure browser online or app on your phone and talk with your physician. They can see you, and you can see them!


Are there benefits of telemedicine?

Yes! One of the reasons telemedicine is such an in-demand service is because it saves patients time. No more running to the office when you’re sick and need an exam. This means more time with your family, less missed work, and of course, more time to recover.Telemedicine is also beneficial because you can have longer appointment times with your doctor.
