Telemedicine visits provides greater access to meet your healthcare needs, reduces travel costs, and enhances the patient-provider experience.
Telemedicine visits are the use of live two-way video and audio electronic communication that allows services to be provided between the healthcare provider and patient in two different locations. Your medical information (oral, written, or visual) will be shared with the healthcare provider through distance location and that information may be used to diagnosis, treat, and provide education to you regarding your weight loss or weight management plan.
The healthcare provider will conduct an online physical exam using photos, two-way audio & video consultation, my completed health questionnaire, past medical records, or otherwise, an appropriate prior in-office
