How can I be appropriately evaluated without an in-person visit?
There are many ways for us to complete a thorough evaluation of you and your health concerns with just a video call. We gain a lot of necessary information just from talking to you and asking the right questions. We can evaluate musculoskeletal issues by having you perform certain movements or physical tasks. We can typically visualize things like rashes, skin lesions, swelling, etc. well via video call, but we may ask you to send us a picture of an area of concern if we aren't seeing it quite clearly enough. For certain issues we may need you to be able to accurately check your blood pressure, heart rate, weight, or temperature at home.
If we encounter an issue that does need an in-person evaluation we will help direct you to the proper place to have this done.
