Advantages of Telehealth:
- Telehealth is great if you’re also working long hours or unable to get childcare since you can have an assessment in the comfort of your own home.
- Not only is it great to get started with new patients, it’s also an important way for existing patients to receive follow-up with their physician or physical therapist.
- Since many people are now working remotely, it is beneficial to have an ergonomic assessment of your workspace to prevent pain and future injuries.
- All that you need is Wi-Fi access from your computer and phone and possibly a little floor space.
Telemedicine is not for medical emergencies. Please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room if you feel you are experiencing any of the following emergency medical problems:
- Chest pain or shortness of breath
- Uncontrolled bleeding
- Coughing/vomiting blood
- Sudden change in mental status, dizziness, weakness, change in vision, slurred speech, or other neurological changes
