What are telemedicine visits?
These visits are medical visits you have at home. In a telemedicine visit, you’ll be able to speak with a medical professional either over the phone or online, then you can get certain services from the professional. Generally, with a telemedicine visit, you can expect to:
- Have either a phone discussion or a virtual visit (a visit over online video conference) with a medical professional.
- Speak with the professional about your symptoms and health
- Get a visual evaluation from the professional, or be asked to come by the clinic for a face-to-face evaluation
- Receive a diagnosis
- Get a recommendation or prescription for treatment
There could be other services you can get with telemedicine, so you can ask a provider if they offer whatever service you need.
What conditions can be treated with telemedicine?
The telemedicine services we’ve mentioned can help during a number of situations and address a number of health conditions. In fact, there are some conditions that should be treated with telemedicine, like certain viral infections that are highly contagious. Here’s a list of some of the common conditions that can be addressed with telemedicine:

If you don’t see a particular condition on that list, you can call our clinic about it.
