Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth allows you to visit with your healthcare provider using internet video link technology. Instead of traveling to their office, you meet with your Integrative Health DPC provider via a safe, secure connection from somewhere comfortable and convenient, like your home. 

The only requirements for accessing telehealth are a reliable internet connection and a laptop, smartphone, desktop computer, or tablet.

What services are accessible via telehealth?

Telehealth is suitable for various common medical issues, including:

  • Minor illness diagnosis and treatment
  • Chronic disease management follow-ups
  • Medication refills
  • Discussing test results
  • Medication management
  • Nutrition counseling 
  • Mental health assessments and reviews

If your provider needs to see visible symptoms like swollen ankles or a skin rash, you can show them using your device’s camera. They can also ask you to perform certain movements to assess musculoskeletal problems.

What benefits do I gain from using telehealth?

Telehealth benefits include:


With telehealth, you don’t have to take time to travel to and from your doctor’s office or wait for your appointment. You simply log in to a virtual waiting room at your appointed time.


Telehealth saves you money on gas and parking or public transportation costs. It also reduces the time you need to take off work or pay for child care.

Reduced infection risk

Avoiding crowds and doctor’s waiting rooms reduces your risk of picking up colds, flu, stomach bugs, and other infectious diseases. This could be particularly important for older patients and those with weakened immune systems, who could develop severe complications from everyday infections.

If you have an infectious disease, you also reduce the likelihood of spreading it to others by staying home.

No transportation issues

If you don’t drive, have no one to transport you, or if accessing public transportation is challenging, telehealth overcomes these issues.

What happens at a telehealth visit?

Your provider will likely ask detailed questions concerning your health, review your medical history, and check your medications. You may need to show them where you have pain or point out abnormalities.

Your provider offers a diagnosis and treatment recommendations, transmitting prescriptions electronically to your chosen pharmacy.

Sometimes, your provider might not have sufficient information to diagnose the problem, in which case you need to make an in-person appointment. You also need to visit in person for lab tests.
