COVID-19 has really changed the platform for how we deliver and receive care, and as of March 18, 2020, the Georgia Composite Medical Board approved measures to make it easier for medical providers to treat patients via telemedicine.
I am excited to announce that I am now able to offer telemedicine visits to my patients! Druid Hills Primary Care in Atlanta has been discussing offering telemedicine visits for several months now, and with the current COVID-19 / Coronavirus pandemic, it gave us more incentive to offer this service for both new and existing patients!
What We Can Treat with a Telemedicine Visit
Among the health concerns you may have that we are able to schedule Telemedicine visits for include:
- HRT follow ups
- HIV treatment and management
- Sick visits
- Depression & Anxiety
- PrEP / PEP
During the visit we can discuss any health concerns you may have, refill medications, and advise health screenings.
Perhaps you are wondering, what about my blood work? No problem, we can easily place an order with Labcorp or Quest. Once the order is placed, all you have to do is locate the nearest patient service center to your home and make an appointment.
What You Need for a Telemedicine Visit
Telemedicine is easy for patients to navigate and means that we can continue to provide primary care from the safety of your own home. To have a telemedicine visit, patients will need either a smart phone or a computer equipped with a webcam and microphone.
Below is a quick guide to help you get setup for a Telemedicine visit!
We are all trying to figure out the new normal during this pandemic and there is a lot of uncertainty, but one thing remains the same – you can count on being able to access me, your primary care provider, for your follow ups and sick visits!
