With the rising popularity of video conferencing platforms and recent demand for remote services, many healthcare providers are now offering telehealth services instead of in-person consultations. Patients can now meet with general practitioners, have their questions answered, and receive prescriptions through their smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other devices.
Are you skeptical about taking advantage of this modern take on healthcare? Continue reading to learn why our team at Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena highly recommends scheduling an online doctor visit through our telehealth portal.
Benefits of Booking an Online Doctor Visit
One of the obvious benefits of booking an online doctor visit is that you do not have to worry about commuting to your doctor’s office or waiting behind a lineup of other patients before your appointment. This is especially useful for patients who experience health concerns while traveling or living abroad. Additionally, individuals who suffer from mobility-limiting health conditions can take advantage of telehealth services from the comfort of their own home.
Patients were originally required to fill out a series of documents while waiting to see a physician, however, at Advanced Urgent Care of Pasadena, we provide an easy-to-use online patient portal where we will collect all necessary information before your telehealth appointment. Patients can also review insurance policies that we accept through this portal.
Guaranteed privacy and security
One of the major concerns that we see when discussing telehealth services is the potential for a lack of confidentiality. Our patients are assured that all medical information that is disclosed will remain anonymous and secure through our video conferencing platform. Many patients also find that video conferencing allows for a much more comfortable environment to discuss personal health issues.
Comprehensive medical examinations
In a perfect world, doctors would be able to spend an adequate amount of time with each patient to examine their overall health and discuss a range of potential solutions to their health problems. However, in-person visits to the doctor’s office can often feel abrupt and insufficient due to the physician’s short window of time to consult with each patient. With an online doctor visit, patients can enjoy more time to discuss their health concerns or undergo routine examinations. This provides a greater opportunity to discuss prescription options, healthy lifestyle changes, and other contributing health factors.
