What happens during telemedicine appointments?

Your telemedicine appointment begins much like an in-office appointment. You take time to discuss your medical history, symptoms you may have, questions, and concerns. A virtual physical exam may include evaluating unusual symptoms, such as pink eye, a rash, or other skin conditions.

For patients with a chronic condition, telemedicine visits allow Dr. Escobar can monitor your blood pressure, blood sugar, body weight, and blood oxygen levels while you’re at home. Dr. Escobar discusses any concerns of findings during the telemedicine appointment.

Depending on the nature of your visit, Dr. Escobar may recommend that you undergo diagnostic tests like nasal or throat swabs, blood tests, urine tests, asthma or allergy testing, X-rays, bone scans, or other imaging procedures.

Dr. Escobar may also recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications as well as other treatments. He also discusses lifestyle modifications or prescribes medications through the pharmacy of your choice. 

How often should I schedule telemedicine visits?

Telemedicine visits might take the place of in-person medication reviews or chronic disease management appointments. In these cases, you might need an appointment every few months for routine check-ins or when you experience new or unusual symptoms.
