When you’re not feeling well or just have a quick question for your doctor, the last thing you may want to do is take a visit to the doctor’s office. At Pulmonary Institute, Dr. Medina understands your situation and wants to help you get the comprehensive care you deserve within the comfort of your own home. Dr. Medina and the team at Pulmonary Institute are proud to offer telemedicine services to residents of Orlando and the neighboring communities of Florida.
Telemedicine Services vs. Doctor’s Visit
Telemedicine services and doctor’s visits go hand-in-hand. While both provide our patients with high-quality, comprehensive care for their sleep and pulmonary conditions, they offer different, unique benefits.
Telemedicine visits are a great way for our patients to get the medical assistance they need from the comfort and convenience of their home, car, office, or wherever they have internet access or cellular service. Telemedicine visits take place over the phone using private and secure HIPAA-compliant technology. During these visits, Dr. Medina will be happy to sit down with you, listen to your health concerns, and develop a tailored treatment plan to help you get back to feeling 100% again. During these visits, Dr. Medina can also provide you with a second opinion regarding your condition.
Doctor’s visits, on the other hand, are recommended for our patients who feel they need a more hands-on approach to their symptoms or condition. Because doctor’s visits are in-person, our patients can receive treatments and diagnostic testing on-site. A doctor’s visit will likely be recommended as a follow-up to your telemedicine visit with Dr. Medina, as a physical course of action can then be taken to treat your condition.
What Can Telemedicine Help Me With?
Telemedicine is a great solution for:
- An initial consultation
- Follow-up care
- A second opinion
- Those experiencing non-urgent symptoms such as a cough
- Discussion of potential sleep disorders
It’s important to keep in mind your telemedicine visit may require a follow-up visit in-person for diagnostic testing and/or treatment.
Is Telemedicine Right For Me?
Telemedicine is a convenient way to get the medical care you need but isn’t always the right solution. Telemedicine may be right for you if you have already received treatment for your condition with Dr. Medina and are looking forward to a follow-up visit for your care. Dr. Medina may also recommend a telemedicine visit if you are interested in learning more about your condition and potential treatment options, or if you would like a second opinion about your condition.
Telemedicine may not be right for you if you are interested in receiving diagnostic testing services or physical treatment for your condition. For these services, we encourage you to make an appointment with Dr. Medina today.
