Our team of board-certified physicians are here to help you gain access to quality healthcare when you need it most. There is no reason to wait when you work with us. Throughout the pandemic one in three adults under the age of 65 have turned to telehealth to meet with their physician. This trend, though inspired by the pandemic, is here to last as many people are learning about the benefits and ease of access provided with telehealth. The Washington Post suggests telehealth patients make the most out of their next virtual visit by focusing on these key factors:
Anytime, anywhere: With medical appointments available anywhere with reliable Internet connection — and some services such as Teladoc available 24/7 — scheduling ones for follow-ups, preventive care and non-urgent questions is more convenient than before. A new patient in my clinic had gained over 100 pounds of excess water weight as a side effect of heart valve problems, but she had been scared to come into the clinic during the pandemic. A telemedicine appointment and a scale could have helped us address the problem much sooner.
Check your tech: Because of patient privacy laws, health systems may use proprietary videoconference systems that operate differently from consumer applications. Test that the system works on your device — that you can log into your account, check into the appointment, and join the call with high-quality video and audio. Don’t do a virtual visit while commuting — choose a quiet, private place with no TV or radio in the background. Consider using earphones. Lighting should be in front of you. Use landscape mode for better visibility. Plug in devices or charge them beforehand. Hiccups can still happen in good conditions, something my deaf patient, her American Sign Language interpreter and I discovered when the video froze at inopportune times during our conference call.
Manage time well: Create an agenda. Start the appointment by listing issues, then ask your doctor if there’s anything the physician would like to add. As a favor to a colleague, I squeezed a new patient into the only available 15-minute slot. He wanted to address new chest pain, high blood pressure and diabetes. Having this list helped me clarify that we’d only have time to thoroughly assess the chest pain, but would examine the other two properly in a follow-up visit.
Be very detailed: The lack of a physical exam means that the most valuable thing you can do is catalogue your symptoms very well. Take good notes and clear, well-lit photos of visible symptoms such as rashes or bruises. It is rare for me to meet patients who can confidently recount all the details I’m going to ask about if they haven’t written some of them down. And the less time spent on data gathering, the more time can be spent on finding solutions.
Online Doctor Appointment Without Insurance
A common question we receive is can our patients meet with our board-certified physicians even if they do not have insurance? The answer is yes, However, there are many different insurance companies that have different standards for what they will cover. While several insurance companies will work with their members to cover the costs of telehealth appointments, you will want to consult with your insurance provider before your appointment to understand the coverage that is included in your plan.
