Telehealth and telemedicine are services that are comparable to office visits or consultations. These services include the use of two-way telecommunications systems that are interactive and provided by your therapist or doctor who are in a different location. If you have a phone or a device with the internet, you already have everything you need to do telehealth and telemedicine.
For some patients, therapy and doctor appointments are more than a minor inconvenience. We recognize that some patients have mobility challenges, chronic conditions, vulnerable immune systems, or they do not live close to our office. Telemedicine and Telehealth cannot always replace the traditional face to face visits, but it has the potential to overcome these challenges by offering a convenient way of receiving services from the comfort of the patient’s home.
