Telemedicine Q & A

Online Check-In

What is telemedicine?  

Telemedicine uses state-of-the-art communications technology to allow you to talk to your doctor through a secure video conference. It provides a convenient, affordable, and safe option to receive medical care without going into the office and seeing your doctor in person. 

You can access telemedicine from anywhere. All you need is a private room and a reliable internet connection.

What services are available through telemedicine?

The team at Urgent and Family Care at Avery Ranch provides a comprehensive range of medical services through telemedicine. 

Diagnosis

The team can diagnose most illnesses and injuries through telemedicine. They can ask about and observe your symptoms through the video conference. In some cases, your provider might recommend coming into the office for lab tests or X-rays to confirm your condition. 

Your provider can also send prescriptions directly to your pharmacy, saving you multiple trips to pick up your prescription, drop it off, and then collect your medication.

Follow-up

The team also offers follow-up appointments to see if your treatment is working. For example, if they prescribe medication to treat a condition like strep throat or allergies, you can check in through telemedicine, so they can see how you’re doing and adjust your treatment as needed. 

Medication management

If you take medication regularly, for example, high blood pressure medication, you need to check in with your provider from time to time, so they can check that your prescription is working. Instead of coming into the office, you can have your medication management appointments via telemedicine. 

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

You and your family are busy, and making time to come to the office for an appointment isn’t always convenient. Telemedicine removes many obstacles to getting the health care you need. Using telemedicine can save you time and money, and it can help you avoid illness or complications.

Save time

You can schedule your telemedicine appointment at your convenience. You don’t need to take time off work or deal with traffic on your way to and from the office. 

Save money

Telemedicine can also help you save money. You don’t need to pay for gas, parking, public transportation, or ride-share. Also, since you can have your appointment from the comfort of your own home, you don’t need to arrange additional child or eldercare. 

Increased safety

When you’re sick, your immune system is busy fighting off your illness. As a result, you’re tired, run-down, and potentially vulnerable to picking up other infections. Telemedicine helps you avoid spreading or picking up other illnesses in the waiting room, public transportation, or from any other people you might encounter.
