Telemedicine Podiatrist in West Palm Beach, FL
Foot Doctors that offer Telemedicine via online virtual appointments
TeleHealth is the distribution of certain health-related services and information via electronic information and tele-communication technologies. It can allow the long distance patient and clinician contact, care, advice, education, intervention, monitoring, prescription recommendations, and even remote hospital admissions.
TeleMedicine is sometimes used as a synonym for TeleHealth, or it is used in a more limited sense to describe remote clinical services, such as diagnosis and monitoring. When in rural settings, lack of transport, a lack of mobility, decreased funding, or a lack of staff restrict the access to patient care, telehealth may be available to bridge that gap.
At this time, Medicare and private insurance companies are allowing TeleMedicine appointments for our Podiatry Services in the comfort of your home, due to Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic "social distancing" and "stay-at-home" guidelines.
This can be done for any visit that requires an initial consultation or follow up visit; where history-taking, review of signs and symptoms, video visualization of the body part in question, and the diagnosis and treatment recommendations can be discussed; including the ordering of diagnostic testing, home treatment recommendations; medications and therapy or medical equipment that can be prescribed or dispensed by mail.
To schedule a TeleMedicine appointment, call our office at 561-293-3439. We will verify if we accept your insurance plan for the online visit. If you do not have health insurance, we can discuss HSA, FSA, and self-pay prices prior to your TeleMedicine visit.
