What is telehealth?
When you have an urgent health need but don’t have the ability to meet with your doctor in person, you can now use technology to meet with Dr. Namjoshi remotely. Telehealth allows you to have access to your doctor without having to leave your location.
When you make a telehealth video call, you can dialogue with Dr. Namjoshi, and she can also visually examine you. By the end of your call, she determines your diagnosis and provides the best method of treatment for you.
When should I rely on telehealth?
Telehealth can be a reliable option for you when you’re not able to get in to see Dr. Namjoshi in person. Scenarios might include:
- You’re traveling
- You have mobility issues
- You’re in a nursing home
- You have a chronic medical condition
- You feel too sick to leave your location
Telehealth also provides convenience if you have a condition that requires frequent evaluations for ongoing care.
This program gets you in touch with your doctor quickly. After your discussion, examination, and diagnosis through the telehealth remote service, Dr. Namjoshi can prescribe medication, if needed.
How does telehealth work?
To access the telehealth option, you simply download an application on your phone, computer, or tablet, and create an account. You then use your account to request a visit with Dr. Namjoshi for a remote video conference call.
During your appointment, you talk about your symptoms and allow Dr. Namjoshi to visually evaluate your appearance for certain signs of illness. You can also upload pictures to give her a closer visual of a targeted area you’re concerned about.
The team at Premier Health Consultants of Northern Virginia can walk you through the process of getting telehealth set up on the device of your choice, making it simple for you.
