Telemedicine Q & A
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of technology (such as a phone or computer) to connect the patient and their doctor without the need for both parties to be in the same physical location. It’s a great way to get the care you need, when you need it.
In addition, telemedicine can also help enhance and strengthen the one-on-one medical care that you wish to receive at every appointment. It’s truly a new way to have an understanding bond between the doctor and patient for the best care possible.
What are some benefits of using telemedicine?
Convenience is a primary benefit of telemedicine. The opportunity to receive health care from virtually any location makes it easy to look after your basic health needs. You can receive preventive health services, chronic disease management, and even treatment recommendations for certain acute care needs.
Ease of access is another benefit. With telemedicine, you don’t have to travel across town to see your doctor. There’s no time spent in traffic and no need to worry about getting to your appointment with your doctor on time.
For people with a disease or condition that negatively impacts their immune system, telemedicine offers the chance to interact with a trusted medical professional without having to compromise their health.
How should I prepare for my telemedicine visit?
Prior to your telemedicine visit, please spend a bit of time thinking about the setting where you will discuss your health concerns with Dr. Klein. Try to find a location that is quiet and away from others. You may want to test the microphone on the device you’ll use to connect with Dr. Klein.
Lighting is also important. Dr. Klein may want to visually assess your condition, so try to find a space with adequate but not overly bright light. You may also want to check the positioning of your device to make sure it’s at the proper height. These steps will help you make the most of your telemedicine appointment.
