Telehealth Q&A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth and telemedicine appointments at Kokoro Health & Wellness include virtual evaluations and treatments where you interact with your provider via your phone, laptop, or tablet, rather than through an in-person visit. It allows you to visit with your doctor from the comfort of your home or office, which offers time and cost savings for many patients. 

Telehealth is an excellent option if you lead a busy lifestyle or want to avoid exposure to sick patients in the waiting room, but don’t want to neglect your own health and wellness.

What are the benefits of telehealth?

Some of the many benefits associated with the convenient telemedicine services at Kokoro Health & Wellness include:

  • No long wait times
  • No traveling
  • No exposure to people who are sick
  • Time savings
  • Cost savings
  • No need to take off work
  • No need for child care

You receive the same exceptional service and privacy during telehealth appointments as you do during in-person visits with Kokoro Health & Wellness providers.

What happens during telehealth appointments?

You connect with your provider at your telehealth appointment time to discuss your medical history, symptoms you may have, questions, and concerns. They can complete a virtual physical exam to evaluate unusual symptoms, such as pink eye, a rash, or other skin conditions.

If you participate in remote patient monitoring, it allows your specialist to monitor blood pressure, blood sugar, body weight, and blood oxygen levels while you’re at home. You and your doctor can discuss these results during your telehealth appointment.

They may recommend 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.

Depending on the reason for your telehealth visit, you might need over-the-counter or prescription medications or other treatment. Your doctor can discuss lifestyle modifications or prescribe medications through the pharmacy of your choice. 

How often should I schedule telehealth visits?

Your Kokoro Health & Wellness provider lets you know how often to schedule telehealth visits. They may recommend you schedule an appointment every few months to monitor a chronic disease or when you experience new or unusual symptoms.

To reap the benefits of exceptional health care from the comfort of your home, car, or workplace, schedule a telehealth appointment with Kokoro Health & Wellness by phone or book a session online today.
