Telemedicine connects with your health care provider remotely, typically through a smartphone, tablet, or computer. It ensures you can receive quality care outside of in-office visits.

Telemedicine offers many advantages, including:
Virtual visits allow you to connect with your provider from anywhere. You can schedule a telemedicine visit at home, on vacation, or on a business trip.
Telemedicine is ideal for patients who live in remote areas, lack reliable transportation, or have work schedules that limit availability.
Your provider can improve your quality of care through remote patient monitoring, regular check-ins, and other virtual services that are difficult to maintain with in-office visits.
Telemedicine visits are typically shorter than in-office appointments, and many cost less. They also allow you to avoid the cost of fuel, bus fare, parking, and childcare.
No, telemedicine can’t entirely replace traditional office visits. They can complement your regular visits, but you still need in-person care. Some services, like physical exams, health screenings, and imaging tests, require face-to-face interaction with a qualified provider.
