You’ll use your computer, smartphone, or tablet to access a video conferencing app for a telemedicine appointment. Typically, the practice sends you a direct link to click at the appointed time. Or, your provider may simply call you using a video call.
Before your appointment, find a quiet, well-lit spot where you can speak with your medical care provider without interruptions. You’ll see your provider, much like you would in the office and converse in real-time.
After reviewing your medical records and discussing the reason for your visit, your AVC Med provider can explain your condition or issue and recommend a treatment. They may prescribe medication, such as antibiotics or antihistamines, or might recommend rest, fluids, and other simple remedies.
Your provider may also recommend a follow-up appointment in a few days to check on your recovery. However, if you experience any issues during recovery, don’t hesitate to contact the office for help.
