As we travel through these uncertain times, we need to adapt to face the challenges that are attached to COVID-19. The situation surrounding the pandemic is constantly changing, and as such, in-person appointments can put several people at risk. At Premier Health Associates, we have begun the practice of telemedicine to keep patients, staff, and the community healthy.
Telemedicine is the practice of healthcare professionals evaluating, diagnosing, and treating patients remotely, by communicating online or over the phone. We believe that this is the best way to evaluate patients at this time, in order to slow the spread of the outbreak.
Premier Health Associates has implemented the use of Virtual Visits in order to evaluate and treat patients effectively, without risking spreading illness to others. In order to be seen by a physician using Virtual Visits, make an appointment with your primary care physician or specialist. Instructions for downloading Virtual Visits can be found here.
