Is telemedicine right for me?
Much of the time, you can choose telemedicine visits with the Peninsula Healthcare & Wellness Center team instead of in-person appointments. However, if you need certain types of care, such as blood tests, imaging procedures, or hands-on treatment, your provider may ask you to come to the office to ensure the best health outcomes.
What should I expect during my appointment?
During telemedicine visits at Peninsula Healthcare & Wellness Center, your provider calls you during your scheduled appointment time. They review your symptoms, medical history, medication regimen, and lifestyle habits.
You can show your specialist concerning symptoms virtually via an electronic device. If you need certain diagnostic tests or treatments, your provider might encourage you to come into the Peninsula Healthcare & Wellness Center office.
Many times, however, your specialist can treat you without an in-office visit. They might recommend lifestyle changes, dietary supplements, medically supervised weight loss, or medication prescriptions. They follow up with you to ensure your treatment works effectively and can make changes to it when necessary.
If you need to see a specialist for a complex medical problem, your provider refers you to a highly trained provider near you.
