Telemedicine allows you to obtain medical care via the use of a smart device such as a smart phone, laptop or tablet. Telemedicine is the “wave of the future” in the healthcare realm. It allows you to avoid unnecessary and expensive urgent care or emergency room visits with an online consultation with a medical provider. Telemedicine also allows for more immediate appointments with a provider. There is no longer any need to call for an appointment or to sit in a waiting room. You can receive the care you need from the comfort of your home or office.
