Our patients may not always have the availability or need to come to the office for some complaints or follow ups. Telemedicine, visits through connected technology device, is a tool used to meet our patients where they are. Whether you are at home, office, on vacation, or right around the corner you can access your Primary Care Provider just like a regular appointment.
While many conditions not on this list can be treated via telemedicine, these conditions are an especially good fit for telemedicine:
Low back pain
Upper respiratory infections
Mental illness/behavioural health
Prevention and wellness service
Follow up for stable chronic conditions
Disease monitoring between regular exams
*Telemedicine should not be used for any condition where an in-person exam is required because of severe symptoms.
For an emergency, patients should go to the ER or call 911.
Your PCP will use their professional judgement to decide when telemedicine is appropriate.
