What’s a telemedicine visit?
This kind of healthcare is known as telemedicine, telecare, or telehealth. With it, you’ll be able to speak with a medical professional like a physician either over the phone or online, and then you’ll be able to get certain services from the professional. Generally, a visit will go something like this:
- You’ll speak with a doctor about your symptoms and health
- If applicable, the doctor will perform a visual examination of you or, if necessary, request you come by the clinic for a face-to-face evaluation
- The doctor will provide you with a diagnosis or, if necessary, ask you to to come by in-person for testing
- The doctor will suggest a treatment or, if required, ask you to come into the clinic or to its curbside for treatment
As you can see, telemedicine can provide a good number of services. These services can help with the treatment of conditions and symptoms like sinus pain, simple sprains, nausea, sore throat, urinary tract infections, general pain, seasonal allergies, minor respiratory issues, viral infections, and more. In fact, viral infections should be treated with telemedicine because they can be highly contagious.
How do I see a doctor virtually?
You can do this with a specific kind of telemedicine called a virtual visit! This is done via online video conference. It’s really easy for many people to see a doctor virtually, as all they need is a:
- Good internet connection
- Computer or another device that has a built-in or accessory camera and/or microphone
If you don’t have those things, you can still receive telemedicine; you’ll just have it over the phone. You can still receive many services over the phone including prescriptions for medications.
Can you get a prescription through telemedicine?
Yes, you can! If a doctor determines you need a prescription medication, you can get that prescription via telemedicine. The doctor will be able to forward the prescription to your nearest pharmacy for pickup. Also, with Town Center Family Practice, we may be able to refill a prescription for you. You’re welcome to contact us to learn more about prescriptions, telemedicine with us, and anything else you’d like to know! You can also book with us for a telemedicine appointment very soon.
