Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine offers you the ability to receive medical care from the team at Harrison Medical Group without having to be at the doctor’s office. They help you set up an online video conference or a telephone call. 

The convenience of this service allows you to get the care you need without having to travel. For example, if you’re too sick to leave your home, or if you have car trouble, or if you can’t find a babysitter for your child, you need an easy option to have accessible health care. Telemedicine provides that for you.

What services does telemedicine offer?

Telemedicine allows your doctor to:

  • Provide new patient evaluations
  • Provide follow-up evaluations
  • Access your medical records
  • Manage your medications
  • Assess an illness or a minor injury

Depending on the nature and severity of your reason for needing medical attention, your doctor might advise you to come into the office. If you have an emergency, call 911 right away.

How does telemedicine work?

You can set up telemedicine from a smartphone, computer, or a tablet that has video access on it. If you don’t have internet service at your location, you can have your appointment by talking on the phone.

The Harrison Medical Group team sets up your appointment for you, puts you on standby while checking you in, and then gives you access to your doctor.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Telemedicine offers many advantages as an easy, convenient way to communicate with your doctor. The team provides you with instructions on how the call gets set up, which is a simple process. 

Your doctor pulls up your medical records while you’re on the call the same way they would if you were in the doctor’s office. Your conversation also remains private and confidential.

Telemedicine saves you from the inconvenience of having to travel, which saves you time and expense. You also don’t have to organize childcare if you have children.

If you’re sick, you don’t have to worry about spreading your illness to others or getting sick from others. You can also access telemedicine from any location. For example, if you’re out of town and need to talk to your doctor, the call can be set up from anywhere.
