Modern medicine is about convenience. When you don’t have the time or the ability to visit your doctor’s office for medical care, you can turn to telehealth. The exceptional team at Michael Aziz, MD offers telehealth to new and existing patients, giving you the ability to videoconference with one of our doctors, receive medical care, and be prescribed medication while staying in the comfort of your own home or office. Request a virtual appointment online, or if you’d like to learn more about how to register for telehealth or call the office. The friendly staff can provide the information you need to access virtual medical services.

Telehealth Q & A

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is easy-to-use, HIPAA-compliant way to receive quality medical care virtually rather than in person.

The process is simple. After you request a virtual appointment, your provider sends a calendar invite with a link to digital registration forms (more information below). You complete the forms and, using the link provided, meet your provider online on the date and time specified in your invitation. 

In addition to receiving high-quality health care without going to the doctor’s office, there’s another benefit: You don’t have to be in the same location as your physician.

If you live a distance from your primary care physician or specialist, you can still get the medical care you need in a comfortable, convenient way through telehealth.

How Does Telehealth Work?

Your telehealth platform offers services such as:

Two-way, high-definition video

With telehealth, you use videoconferencing so that you have a face-to-face meeting with your provider — like you’re sitting together in your doctor’s office.

Digital Patient Registration

You register online, where you can submit your symptoms, allergies, medications, medical history, and ID cards prior to your first teleconference visit with your doctor.

Prescription Management

Your doctor manages your medications and sends your prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy.

Secure Online Payment

Telehealth software allows you to securely send your payment online.

Chat and Photo-Sharing Capabilities

You can chat with your doctor and easily upload photos of your symptoms when applicable. Communication is a two-way street, as your physician can reach out to you with messages.

HIPAA Compliant

HIPAA is a law that protects the privacy of your medical records and personal health information. Your telehealth interactions are also secure, and only authorized users can access your telehealth sessions.

What Health Care Services Can I Receive Through Telehealth?

You can receive many of the services normally provided in the office from home, but you need to check with us to learn exactly which services can be done via telehealth. 

In the case of a medical emergency, however, you need to seek care at your local urgent care facility or hospital emergency department.

Will Insurance Pay for Telehealth?

Some insurance companies cover telehealth due to the Covid-19 pandemic, while others don’t.
