Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth at PrudentMD includes evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment advice you can receive from medical professionals via your home or workplace. That means you don’t have to travel to a doctor’s office or be exposed to sick patients. You simply speak with a provider over your smartphone, tablet, computer, or another electronic device.

PrudentMD specialists use audio-video platforms for their existing patients. If you’re a new patient or need a wellness exam, you must come to the PrudentMD office in Iselin.

What are the benefits of telehealth?

The benefits you can expect when choosing telehealth at PrudentMD include:

 

  • Maximum privacy
  • Convenience
  • High-quality care
  • Illness or disease management
  • No need to travel
  • No exposure to sick patients
  • Time and cost savings
  • No need for childcare
  • No need to take time away from work

By choosing telehealth at PrudentMD, you receive the same exceptional care as you do during in-person visits.

Your specialist can help you recover from an illness, properly manage a chronic disease, or help you make lifestyle changes to reduce your risk of complications. They also offer stop-smoking materials and medically supervised weight loss consultations via telehealth.

What should I expect during telehealth appointments?

During telehealth visits with the PrudentMD specialists, you can expect a call at your scheduled appointment time. Your provider reviews your symptoms and medical history. They might complete a virtual physical exam if you have a concern you’d like to show them. 

Your provider also reviews your past diagnoses, lab work, and the medications you’re taking. They make sure that your current treatment plan, if you have one, is working the way it’s designed to and answer questions you have about your health or treatment.

Will I need treatment?

You might need treatment after a telehealth visit with your PrudentMD provider. If you do, they’ll recommend continuing your current treatment plan, taking new medicines, or trying a different dose of your current medication. You might need to change your diet, dietary supplements, or exercise routine.

If you need a diagnostic test or hands-on treatment, like wound and fracture care, blood and urine tests, and X-rays, your specialist will recommend an in-office visit. They could refer you to a specialist if you have a complex medical problem.

Call the office today or use the online booking feature to schedule a telehealth appointment with a medical expert at PrudentMD.
