Tele Medicine Consultation

Introducing Telemedicine

Telemedicine involves any clinical services provided via telecommunications technology. Basically, it is a modern way of conducting visits using audio and video communication over the internet, rather than meeting in person.

How Telemedicine Works

In practice, it involves an audio or video consultation by opening an application (skype and zoom) that has been designed specifically for this purpose, on your smartphone, tablet or computer that has high-speed internet access.

 

 

Our consultants will open the application from our end, and we will be able to communicate and see each other. This can be done at any convenient place of your choice with maximum privacy.

Why Telemedicine is Great for Patients

Our patients love this new option to have a remote visit. If you choose it, you won’t have to take as much time away from work, waste time in traffic, or sit in a waiting room with people who might have contagious illnesses. We will make sure that your insurance company will cover this type of visit before we schedule it.

How It is Used Safely

Not all visits can be effectively conducted remotely. We will only schedule visits via telemedicine when the nature of your health concern lends itself to the approach. If something comes up in a visit that makes us feel that an in-person evaluation is necessary, we will consider arranging that. Studies have repeatedly

 

 

shown that the health outcomes of video visits are just as good as those conducted in person.

 

Be rest assured that we have solutions that protects your confidentiality and provides for secure communication between just us.
