In cases such as living far away from a doctor’s clinic or having not enough time to travel, established patients may be evaluated and treated via Telemedicine for certain illnesses. As we at Braxton Medical Clinic offer such service, you must specify when scheduling an appointment that you want telemedicine and our providers will connect with you on your phone or computer at your scheduled time. Telemedicine is the use of electronic communications and software to provide clinical services to patients without coming to the clinic.
When you opt for telemedicine as an alternative to in-person visits, you can receive a host of benefits, such as:
- Less time away from work
- No travel expenses
- Less interference with a child or elder care responsibilities
- No exposure to other potentially contagious patients
