COVID-19 Latest Update – Expanded Telehealth Services

Telehealth has been proven to improve overall health outcomes for chronic disease patients, reduce hospitalizations and re-admissions among high risk patients, prevent acute events, support adherence to prescribed plans of care, improve patient experience, and lower costs to both patients and providers.

Karen R. Thomas, founder of Advanced Telehealth Solutions

As we work our way through the month of April amidst the current COVID-19 situation, we would like our patients to know that we are now offering HIPPA compliant and secured telehealth or “Virtual Visits” as a way to see our providers from the comfort and convenience of your own home — or office, or anywhere! — on your computer, tablet, or smart phone.

We are wanting to continue to provide you with quality healthcare services, and feel that these options will help keep everyone safe and continue such things as medication refills, blood pressure monitoring, etc. We are doing our best to keep you safe and not interrupt any healthcare services you may require.

All you have to do is call the office and make your appointment, the same way you would for an in-office visit. When your appointment time comes, just sign in through the Zoom link that has been emailed to you, and we’ll connect directly to you.  It really is that easy.

Here is a visual of how to set up Zoom for both Apple and Android users:

Also, if you do not have access to a tablet, smartphone or computer, but have in home WIFI, we can lend a tablet to you for the virtual visit.  Just let us know what you need. 

Finally, if none of this will work for you, we still are seeing patients in our offices for regular patient care.  If you are too nervous to come in to our clinic, please call us to see if we can schedule a telephone visit or see you in your car. 

During this uncertain time of the COVID 19 Pandemic, we are working hard to provide the best care in the most convenient way.  We hope to hear from you. 

Let’s stay healthy together.
