Modern communication technologies have made medical care more available and effective for those who are busy, at risk of infections, or out of town. At Vantage Medical Associates, P.C. in Far Rockaway, New York, the team uses audio-only and audio-visual telehealth to stay in touch with patients and perform simple assessments. They can also manage your medications or update your treatment plans. To see if telehealth is available for your next visit, call the office today or request an appointment online.
Telehealth uses audio or audio-video instead of in-office visits with your physician. While you can’t get every diagnostic or treatment service with a telehealth visit, these visits are especially valuable if you regularly speak with your physician.
Your telehealth visits with the Vantage Medical Associates PC team are completely confidential, just like your in-person visits. You can use telehealth when you’re out of town or when driving to the office isn’t possible because of your schedule.
Integrating telehealth services into your care plan can save you time and money. You don’t have to worry about how you’re going to get to the doctor’s office. Even diagnostic tests can be done right in your home.
You have a couple of choices for telehealth visits at Vantage Medical Associates PC. You and your provider can decide which will work best for you. Your choices are:
Audio-only telehealth involves visits done entirely over the phone. During these visits, you can check in with your physician and give them updates on your progress with treatment.
During an audio-visual telehealth visit, you can talk face-to-face with your doctor using high-quality video chat on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
If you’re not sure if telehealth will work for your next visit, you can talk to your doctor about your specific care needs during your next in-person visit. They can tell you if telehealth fits into your plan. Plenty of different services are available with telehealth, including:
During an in-person visit, your Vantage Medical Associates PC doctor might send you home with devices that monitor your condition. These devices report information directly back to the doctor’s office. For example, a wireless electrocardiogram (ECG) device can send information about your heart function back to the team that they can use in your treatment.
Telehealth services make it easier to stay engaged with your care providers. To learn more about telehealth services at Vantage Medical Associates PC, call the office today or book an appointment online.
