Our office uses telemedicine as a way to provide healthcare in addition to office visits. Telemedicine provides an element of physical distancing that prevents infections, as well as providing convenience and flexibility for patients.

There may be times in-office assessment would be necessary. However, telemedicine will likely be an important way to access care going forward.

We are formalizing the use of telemedicine by having our patients review and sign a consent for telemedicine, found below. You can sign electronically and send it back to us, or print it off, sign it and email it back to us (you can scan it or even take a picture of the signed copy and email it to us).

You can follow this link on how to prepare for a televisit. A few major points:

  • Plan on having a quiet, private place for your televisit
  • Write down a few points about what you want to discuss. Think about why you need to be seen and what is most important to discuss. Note any symptoms, including when they occur and anything that makes them better or worse.
  • Taking a high-resolution photo of skin issues or external injuries can be helpful during a phone or video appointment.
  • If you have a reliable blood pressure monitor or bathroom scale, these measurements may be helpful.
