Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

For most people, seeing your doctor has traditionally meant taking a trip to their office and meeting them face-to-face. Although in-person doctor visits are still the gold standard of care today, technological advancements have made it possible to get the professional medical attention you need without ever leaving your home.

Telehealth encompasses video visits, phone calls, text messages, and email communication with your medical team. These technological advancements have made it possible for you to speak with your doctor, and sometimes even see them on video, to be able to consult with them about your health.

The team at EZ HealthCare have embraced telehealth to make it easy for their patients to get the care that they need. 

What is telehealth helpful for?

Communicating with your doctor through telehealth can save you time by eliminating the need to travel to the office while still getting the professional medical advice and guidance that you need. Telehealth is helpful for more minor issues, such as a cold, discussing some test results, or answering questions that you may have about your health.

However, telehealth cannot always replace an in-person visit. If your doctor needs to physically examine your or conduct certain tests, this must be done at the office. In addition, surgeries and other procedures obviously cannot be performed over telehealth. 

What should I expect at my appointment?

It is important to make sure that the technology that you will be using to communicate with your provider is working properly before your appointment. The team at EZ HealthCare will provide you with detailed instructions on how to use the technology and will be available to answer any questions that you may have regarding the process. 

If you are having a video or phone appointment with your provider, you will have the opportunity to ask them questions and discuss your health, much as you would in a regular appointment. Other times, you may be communicating with the team over email.
