Telehealth, a virtual visit with your doctor
We are pleased to offer Telehealth services as a benefit and convenience to our Illinois and California patients for minor medical issues, counseling, simple follow up visits and for persons unable or not willing to travel in to see the doctor
Telehealth (formerly known as Telemedicine) is a mode of delivering health care services and public health via information and communication technologies to facilitate the diagnosis, consultation, treatment, education and self-management of a patient’s health care while the patient and health care provider are at distant sites. Telehealth is not a telephone conversation, email/instant messaging conversation, or fax. It typically involves the application of videoconferencing or store and forward technology to provide or support health care delivery. The standard of care is the same whether the patient is seen in-person, through Telehealth or other methods of electronically enabled health care.
With Telehealth, our practice can extend services to include evening hours and after hours for your convenience and our growth. Visits are 15 minutes in length and are all video linked for more accuracy and a more personal approach. Each visit includes the consultation, a review of records and labs and any forms, faxes or emails that need to be taken care of because of the electronic visit.
