What is Telemedicine?

(Also referred to as Telehealth, Teletherapy or Telepsychiatry) Telemedicine is a form of video conferencing allowing physicians and therapists to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients remotely using telecommunication technology, for example at the patient’s home or workplace. In plain language this means you can have a doctor’s appointment through a video chat on your smartphone. This is all runs through our trusted provider Doxy.me. It also provides the opportunity for consultation with family members, teachers and other providers involved in the patient’s care. Surveyed patients participating in telemedicine say they are very satisfied with the care they are receiving and that they feel telemedicine is a reliable form of practice. In addition, they find that they are able to keep their appointments on a more regular basis.

Benefits

Telemedicine provides the patient with benefits that may lead to better care. We understand it can be difficult to take time off from your busy schedule to come to our office. This form of treatment can eliminate your commute time and lead to less stress, especially when you are scheduled to see your physician often. For patients who are usually seen in the office but are sick or traveling, this form of treatment allows you to still keep your appointment without interrupting your care.


Telemedicine is currently only available for certain Primary Care patients. Please speak with your provider for more information. Every telemedicine patient will need to sign this consent form first.

Yes. We use the most secure technology available that is HIPAA approved and are constantly updating our systems to stay ahead of the curve. Each appointment takes place in a closed off patient room, just as in a regular appointment.

Is it as good as a regular appointment?

There are pros and cons. While you don’t get to shake the doctor’s hand or visit our very nice clinic, you still get a personal face to face interaction with only you and the doctor in a private setting. The quality of the video chat is good enough that the doctor can see anything you need to share. You will get the same amount of time as you would with a normal appointment.

How affordable is it?

The session is quite affordable at $80, the cost of a routine followup visit.

Can I still get prescriptions?

Yes, the doctor can prescribe medications as normal.
