Telemedicine is when doctors use video chats to interact with their patients. Dr. Mehta offers video visits so that he can address his patients needs immediately without making them travel to his office. No matter where you are, you can schedule a video visit with Dr. Mehta. There are several benefits to this practice, including:
And, of course, video visits allow Dr. Mehta an opportunity to see exactly what you're talking about even if you aren't in the same room. While they can't replace an actual meeting with Dr. Mehta, it's the next best thing if you can't get to his office.
Video visits happen over a secure connection, and Dr. Mehta takes additional measures to protect your privacy and guarantee your privacy. Telemedicine and those who practice it must follow the same HIPAA guidelines and protocols as any other healthcare practitioner. When you call Dr. Mehta's office to schedule your appointment, you should make it for a time when you won't be disturbed and can talk without any distractions.
Dr. Mehta can guarantee confidentiality on his end, but it's up to you to protect yourself when it comes to where you are and who has access to you during the video visit. If you are using your cell phone for your video visit, you should find an area that is as private as possible to protect your information.
Dr. Mehta can schedule almost any kind of appointment for a video visit. Video visits work great for checking in with the doctor after surgery. They're also perfect for receiving results from lab tests. You can also use the video visit option if you've experienced an injury and you have questions about how to treat it at home. Dr. Mehta can also identify injuries that need medical attention in his office.
Video visits are best for illnesses and injuries that can be identified through a visible image or by describing them to Dr. Mehta. He can conduct most types of appointments through video visits, but if you aren't sure, you should call Dr. Mehta's office and ask. The staff is more than happy to help you determine if a video visit is right for you.
