What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a convenient way to receive health care without visiting your primary care practice in person. Skip the waiting room and get immediate care from the comfort of your home.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Telemedicine has some notable benefits. It’s perfect if you’re feeling under the weather, enabling you to stay safe and warm at home. It also gives you far more flexibility, so you can see your provider when it’s most convenient.

Using telemedicine is particularly valuable for people who wouldn’t find it easy to make a trip to the practice, including:

  • Disabled people
  • The elderly
  • Those with chronic diseases
  • People living in rural areas
  • Patients with mental health disorders

You reduce your exposure to infectious diseases like colds and flu using telemedicine. You also avoid traveling time and reduce the need to arrange time off work or childcare.

How do I access telemedicine?

Accessing telemedicine is easy. Call Maltman Medical Center office to schedule a consultation, and you’ll receive complete instructions regarding logging on to the secure telemedicine platform. When your appointment time is near, you log in to the virtual waiting room, and your provider joins you.

The consultation is like an in-person visit. Your provider reviews your medical history, then discusses your current health and the reason for your call. If you have any visible symptoms, like a rash, you can use your device’s webcam to show your provider. An initial telemedicine consultation might sometimes identify a need for blood or other tests or an in-person meeting.

Maltman Medical Center currently offers telemedicine visits to established patients Monday through Thursday from 8am to 5pm and Friday's 8am to1pm. Controlled substances are not prescribed via telemedicine visits.
