What Is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine refers to the ability to receive an informed medical opinion digitally, through a virtual health consultation on a platform such as your computer or another internet-enabled device. It does not take the place of an in-person examination, but it can be a good first step, especially if your symptoms are not that severe.

How Does a Virtual Health Consultation Work?

Call or contact the doctor online as normal to schedule an appointment but let us know that you are interested in telemedicine services. We will schedule an appointment and let you know how to log on for your virtual consultation at the appointed time. When you log on, Dr. Esslinger will discuss your symptoms and examine you remotely over a video-conferencing application. Depending upon what he learns, he may prescribe medication, offer a home remedy as a possible solution, or recommend that you come in for in-person examination.

What Are the Benefits of Telehealth Solutions?

There are a number of reasons why telemedicine may be a good option for you. If you are concerned that you may have an infectious disease, you may not want to interact with other people. You may be feeling too ill to travel, or you may simply feel that you have a minor issue that doesn’t require the inconvenience of traveling outside the home for an in-person doctor’s appointment. Whatever the reason, a telemedicine consult can be a great first step.
