Telehealth Services at Your Fingertips


Virtual Wellness

At OccuMed Primary Care, your health is our priority. We want you and your family to be completely at ease under our care. For your convenience, we offer many services through telehealth appointments.

We value our patients, and we want you to feel appreciated rather than just another problem for a doctor to solve. That’s why we work hard to deliver the best possible services for you. Telehealth is one of the many services we offer to make it easier for our patients to access care. If you need assistance setting up a telehealth appointment, contact our office today.

What Is Telehealth?

Telehealth is an online doctor’s appointment where you can discuss your concerns with a physician directly. Also known as telemedicine, your healthcare provider can assist you without having to visit in person. Telehealth is usually completed via internet access on an electronic device, such as a computer or cell phone.

At OccuMed Primary Care, we use Doximity Dialer Video to remotely speak to patients. All calls and text messages are confidential and HIPPA-compliant. Here’s an overview of how it works:

  • When it is time for your appointment, you’ll receive a text message from our physician. Click the provided link to start the video call.
  • During your video call, you’ll speak directly to a physician who can discuss your current well-being and offer the guidance you need, just like you would receive at a regular checkup.
  • We can schedule a follow-up appointment if you need in-person treatment.

Telehealth makes it easy to discuss your well-being with an expert without taking significant time out of your day. It is an especially convenient option that allows you to be an active participant in the betterment of your own health. You won’t need to download any apps or software to speak to our physician remotely, making it an easy way to get in touch with our team.

Is Telehealth Right for Me?

Telehealth is an excellent option for simple appointments or questions. These appointments are used for a variety of reasons, and patients can get specialized care regarding medications or chronic health issues. It is also a good option for those who are at high risk of COVID-19, since you do not have to worry about spreading the infection to others, unlike an in-person consultation. Your physician can help you decide if telehealth is a suitable option for you.

Examples of care you can receive through telehealth include:

  • Advice for skin conditions
  • Management for prescriptions
  • Follow-ups for surgeries
  • Advice for recurring health issues such as migraines
  • Results from lab tests or X-rays

Telehealth is a convenient way to instantly get in touch with someone who is knowledgeable about the conditions you are dealing with. Trust our team to do everything we can to ensure your questions are answered and that your needs are met.
