Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the delivery of medical services through electronic telecommunication, either video chat or phone. Telemedicine enables medical professionals to provide evaluations, diagnoses, and treatment to patients who have a long distance to travel or mobility and other issues that prevent them from making in-person visits. Telemedicine allows patients to avoid unnecessary office visits for non-emergency medical problems and receive the treatment they need from a more convenient location via their smartphone.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Telemedicine has many benefits for individuals seeking to receive medical care from an experienced, board-certified physician. The first benefit is convenience. With telemedicine, patients can find medical treatment that fits into their schedule.

In addition to saving time, telemedicine also helps patients save money as there is no need to take time off work or miss important engagements. Patients can conveniently access essential medical services from an experienced board-certified doctor from the comfort of their own home. Telemedicine is also ideal for frequent travelers, allowing them to correspond with the same physician no matter where they are in the world.

For patients with disabilities and/or chronic illness, telemedicine is also a practical way to seek medical treatment. Routine needs like renewing prescriptions and annual exams can be quickly administered without the hassle of a long commute. Patients who opt for telemedicine enjoy confidential, compassionate care in the spaces in which they feel most comfortable.

What medical conditions can telemedicine address?

The truth is, not all medical concerns require an on-site visit. Telemedicine is the optimal way for patients looking for medical evaluations or assistance with non-emergency medical matters to address their health and wellness with no disruption to their everyday schedules. When used appropriately, telemedicine can address a large variety of medical concerns and conditions. Some of these conditions include:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Cold and flu
  • Stress and anxiety

Even if you aren't struggling with an immediate condition, telemedicine is an easy and effective way to manage your overall health. Dr. Saltzman can remotely evaluate your health and advise you on the best options for improving and maintaining your health. Whether you need a follow-up or consultation, telemedicine services are a convenient way to access the care you need. To get started, book an appointment by phone or online today.
