When you’re under the weather, the last thing you want to worry about is how long you'll have to wait to get an appointment. At Dugan Family Medicine, we believe everyone is entitled to affordable, accessible, and efficient healthcare. It's why we offer telehealth services to patients in Arizona, Florida, and Kansas – with more states to come!
Telehealth vs. Home Visits
While home visits are tried and true in the medical world, telehealth is a relatively new concept that is rising in popularity. What’s the difference between the two? Let’s talk about it.
What Are Telehealth Services?
Telehealth is a healthcare service that allows patients to receive the comprehensive, high-quality care they deserve for their acute or chronic illnesses over the phone. Using HIPAA-compliant technology to ensure your sensitive information is kept safe, telehealth visits allow patients to receive consultations, assessments, and prescriptions from the comfort and convenience of their home, car, office, or wherever they have internet access or cellular service.
We offer our services to all patients residing in and visiting the states where our practice is operating, including Florida, Arizona, and Kansas. We often recommend telehealth visits for patients who wish to refill prescriptions or those who require quick, convenient care for their illnesses.
What Are Home Visits?
Home visits are exactly what they sound like. This service involves Dr. Dugan visiting the home of the patient to administer care. Home visits are more commonly recommended to patients who may need hands-on care for their acute or chronic illness. Dr. Dugan is proud to offer a wide range of services including joint injections, lab draws, and minor dermatological procedures during his home visits.
Benefits of Telehealth Services
Telehealth is a continuously growing practice among medical professionals – and for good reason. There are many benefits of receiving telehealth services with Dr. Dugan at Dugan Family Medicine, including:
- Quick, convenient healthcare
- Medical assistance provided without having to leave the home
- Appointments may take place anywhere you have cellular service
- No wait times or waiting rooms
- Full consultation, evaluation, and prescription services are available
- Affordable, accessible appointments
- No insurance requirements
To find out more about how our telehealth services can benefit you, we encourage you to call us today at (407) 784-3290*. Dr. Dugan will be happy to meet with you on your visit and discuss how telehealth will best work for you.
Is Telehealth Right for Me?
If you have a health concern that doesn’t require a physical examination or tactile treatment, telehealth services may be right for you. Common reasons our patients use our telehealth services include seeking treatment for a yeast infection or urinary tract infection, seeking treatment for the flu or a common cold, or receiving routine prescription refills such as prescriptions for an inhaler.
If you or a loved one is feeling ill, but you don’t want the inconvenience of sitting in a doctor’s office, telehealth services may be right for you. This affordable and accessible healthcare option is available for patients across Florida, Arizona, and Kansas, with more states to come.
