Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is an alternative to office visits when it comes to getting the health checks or care you need. Instead of attending the office, which involves travel costs and time to and from the appointment, you can visit with your provider remotely using high-definition video and audio technology. 

You can tune into a telemedicine visit from anywhere, whether you’re at home, close to home, or far away on vacation. As long as you have an accessible phone, tablet, or computer, you’re prepared for your telehealth communications. 

Your provider can perform basic exams, make a diagnosis, and even prescribe or adjust most medications with telemedicine visits. This makes your overall care plan more convenient and accessible for you and your family members. 

Depending on your own circumstances, you might enjoy other benefits of telemedicine. For example, it’s easier to track down a family member to offer additional information about your health while tuning in to a remote visit than bringing a family member into the office to offer input.

Which services can I get with telemedicine?

Telemedicine visits at Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC can simplify your care by eliminating visits that take only a few minutes and don’t involve any in-depth testing. 

While you still need to come to the office for certain services like lab tests, imaging tests, immunizations, and cancer screenings, you can use telemedicine for:

  • Medication management
  • Treatment follow-ups
  • Chronic disease management
  • Behavioral health assessments
  • Sick visits

Your provider lets you know if you need to schedule an office visit before or after a telehealth visit so they can gather necessary information or measurements on your health that you can’t get at home.
