Telemedicine Q&A

What should I know about telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a type of health care in which you meet with a medical professional from a distance. Instead of seeing each other face-to-face at the office, you meet with your physician by video or phone call from a more convenient place.

Telemedicine also includes electronic communications via text and email with your team.

Telemedicine is a convenient option if you can’t get to the doctor’s office because of a lack of time or transportation issues. It also allows you to meet with your primary care physician from any location, improving continuity of care when you’re out of town.

Calabasas Medicine Group is a concierge medicine practice dedicated to providing high-quality patient care. They use telemedicine to give you the attentive care necessary to manage your health.

I have a sore throat. Can I use telemedicine to get medical care?

You can use telemedicine to manage many health concerns, including an acute illness like a sore throat. Other uses for telemedicine include:

  • Medication refills
  • Chronic disease management follow-up care
  • Management of minor injuries
  • Sick care

Though you can get many medical services through telemedicine, your physician at Calabasas Medicine Group may request an in-office visit if you need lab work or other tests to diagnose a health condition. 

What can I expect during a telemedicine appointment?

You can expect the same attentive care during telemedicine appointments as in-office visits. 

The details of your appointment depend on your specific health concerns. But like all visits at Calabasas Medicine Group, your physician schedules ample time so they can fully answer all of your health questions.

The team requests you meet in a place that’s private and quiet. They ask detailed questions about your concerns, review your medical history, and may request health data such as your weight or blood pressure.

If you have a minor injury, your physician may request you send an image of the injury for an evaluation. 

Your physician talks to you about your condition and makes recommendations. They may schedule follow-up visits if needed.
