  • What is telemedicine?
    Telemedicine is the practice of providing clinical care to patients at a distance using telecommunications technology. In other words, it is a method of treating patients using the internet and telephone. This can take the form of real-time video visits, secure email, or patient portal.
  • How much is a telemedicine appointment?
    We provide telemedicine appointments for 39.99 per visit. This is a flat rate with no health insurance necessary.
  • Is telemedicine technology difficult to use?
    Of course, this depends on the specific application, but in general, telemedicine software is designed to be as easy to use as other familiar modern applications. We have partnered with Athena Health to bring telemedicine to you. Patients and providers with a basic familiarity with online apps should be able to quickly figure out how to use a telehealth application.
  • Is telemedicine private and secure?
    Yes, but only when it is conducted using an encrypted platform that was designed for the purpose. Consumer apps like Facetime and Skype are not secure enough for video visits.
  • Is the quality of care the same as an in-person visit?
    The quality of telemedicine as a method of healthcare delivery is confirmed by decades of research and demonstrations. Telemedicine has been found to be a safe, cost-effective and convenient way to provide healthcare services.
  • What are the benefits of telemedicine?
    Telemedicine gives patients the opportunity to receive care without a trip to the doctor’s office. They don’t have to take time away from work or family responsibilities. They don’t waste time traveling, or money on parking or public transportation. They don’t risk exposure to other patients with communicable illnesses. And they get better health outcomes and become more engaged in their own healthcare.
