Telemedicine Q&A

What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine, sometimes called telehealth, is a group of remote healthcare services your provider offers. Often, this takes the shape of a phone call, a live chat, or a face-to-face video call. Only some treatment plans can be carried out remotely, which may include:

  • Questions for your healthcare provider
  • Remote monitoring, like checking vitals
  • Mental health services
  • Prescription management
  • Appointment follow-ups
  • Some lab tests, depending on your condition

Telemedicine is highly customized to your needs, and the Linden Medical Group experts may be able to offer even more services. If you’re looking for a comfortable, convenient approach to healthcare, telemedicine may be right for you.

Is Telemedicine private?

A remote appointment via live chat or video call is just as private and protected as an in-person visit. The Linden Medical Group specialists take heavy precautions to protect your important data. Your health information is never shared with anyone but you, your healthcare provider, and anyone you permit to access your information. All audio and video calls and live chats are confidential and secure.

How do I access Telemedicine?

If you’re a current patient and you book a telemedicine appointment through the online portal, you’ll be provided instructions on how to access your appointment. Some providers may opt for a secure portal to set up a video call to help protect your information. They will provide you with detailed instructions that help you navigate the technology. Other providers may opt for a phone call if face-to-face contact isn’t ideal for you. In either circumstance, Linden Medical Group makes virtual appointments accessible and easy to follow.

What are the benefits of Telemedicine?

Telemedicine offers many benefits and makes your healthcare experience more convenient and comfortable. With a remote doctor’s appointment, you can safely limit your exposure to common illnesses, such as the flu or COVID-19. This may be especially ideal for immunocompromised patients. Moreover, telemedicine omits travel and reduces time spent in a waiting room, allowing for better time management. Telemedicine services can also provide greater access to medical specialists for certain conditions, where travel may be impractical due to location differences. If you’re an existing patient, you can book your telemedicine appointment by calling the Linden or Clifton, New Jersey offices or through the online portal. First-time patients must have an in-person consultation, but can schedule subsequent appointments remotely.
