5 Reasons to Consider a Telehealth Consultation

As people make an effort to stay safe and healthy during the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the benefits of telehealth consultations have become more obvious. However, even in more typical times, you might find that a telehealth appointment serves your needs better than a trip to the doctor's office.

At Living Water Community Health & Wellness Clinic in Porterville, Lindsay, and Visalia, California, the well-being and safety of all of our new and existing patients matters to us. That's why our compassionate and experienced staff offers comprehensive telehealth services. Here are some reasons you might not have thought of to choose a telehealth treatment option for your next appointment.

1. Safe and secure two-way technology

With telemedicine services, you can fully connect with a medical professional. Telehealth consultation technology lets you communicate in real time with a member of our care team.

You can ask us any questions that have been on your mind about your health and wellness and respond to any follow-up questions we may have for you. And you can trust that your information remains private and secure, as telehealth appointments are protected under HIPAA.

2. A convenient way to share symptoms

Our telehealth interface allows you to conveniently document and share images or video of your symptoms with our care team. Just snap a picture of an injury or a symptom, such as a rash or swelling, and we can begin diagnosing your condition and putting together a health care plan to have you feeling better soon.

3. No mobility or access issues

For many people with chronic pain conditions or limited mobility, the trip to a doctor's office can be arduous and exhausting. Save time and energy by accessing telemedicine services without leaving the comfort of your home.

4. Avoid coping with contagion

Do you have a condition you're worried could be contagious? Instead of coming into the office with a potentially contagious condition — from COVID-19 to the flu to shingles — use telehealth services to check in with a professional, screen symptoms, and get recommended medications or referrals, all without any risk of exposing others.

5. Update your prescriptions hassle-free

We make getting new or updated prescriptions through a telehealth consultation easy and frictionless. We can even send your new prescriptions to your pharmacy of choice for you to pick up or get delivered.

You can make a telehealth appointment with a member of the Living Water Community Health & Wellness Clinic staff by contacting us today. Call during office hours, or book your telemedicine consultation appointment anytime with our convenient online tool.
