TELEMEDICINE AT GENESIS MEDICA
Patient Care Outside the Office
The telemedicine practice provides remote diagnostic and treatment services to patients. These can be conducted on a landline phone or on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer using a secure video conferencing app. When you cannot or do not wish to visit one of our offices for care, simply call for a telemedicine appointment.
Telemedicine is ideal for patients who want to limit their risk of exposure to COVID-19. This includes: people with compromised immune systems and chronic diseases such as asthma and heart disease; those above the age of 65; and anyone who had contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 or who is otherwise suspected of having contracted the virus. Telemedicine is also a good option for housebound patients and for caregivers who look after a child or elderly family member. All you need to organize is free time and a private space.
Telemedicine can provide an accurate diagnosis, have a prescription renewed, or get advice about next steps in a treatment program. Of course, telemedicine is not a viable approach when a comprehensive physical exam is called for, or if we need to perform blood work, a biopsy, or X-rays or other imaging procedures.
But telemedicine can provide many healthcare services. If you’re not feeling well, we can video conference with you to review your medical history and symptoms, visually assess your health, and call in prescriptions to your local pharmacy. Telemedicine is ideal for checking in with us about prescriptions such as birth control and blood pressure medications, and synthetic thyroid drugs. Telemedicine also works for consultations for gynecology and urology services and just about any service that does not require a face-to-face physical exam.
