Q: What is a telemedicine visit? What can be seen with the telemedicine services?
A: Telemedicine is a medical consultation via a video platform. Phone calls are also considered telemedicine, but for our app we commonly utilize a video consult service. Telemedicine has been around for decades but until recently has only been a niche part of medical care. Smartphones and tablets are now ubiquitous, and this allows you to have a medical provider at your fingertips for consultation wherever you may be.
There is a wide array of medical conditions that can be evaluated and treated with phone or video visits. Cold and flu symptoms, pink eye, rashes, bladder infections, allergies, and many others……Of course each person we see is treated as a unique case and it’s always at the discretion of our providers and patient what can and cannot be treated with the phone or video option.
