Telemedicine

Our practice has implemented new policies and technology such as Telemedicine to meet the needs of our patients with your safety in mind as first and foremost.

What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is growing increasingly more popular. It has become the staple for healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic. Telemedicine consists of audio and/or visual communication with your doctor. It is a safe and effective way to discuss lab results, medication management, and address medical questions.

  • No traveling

    Considering the recent changes from the Center for Medicare Services, Telemedicine has become an effective and convenient way of getting the care that you need without traveling.

  • Safety first

    The safety of our patients and staff remains our highest priority. We have equipped our practice management software with Telemedicine to conduct patient visits with non-urgent issues via Telemedicine

  • Telemedicine trained

    In addition, our staff has also undergone training in the implementation of Telemedicine, so that we may assist you in all your healthcare needs efficiently and safely.

How does it work

      1. Prior to the Telemedicine visit, our system sends you an email with instructions to your virtual “visit.”
      2. All you need is a camera, a microphone, and reliable internet. If you don’t have access to the internet or camera, we can still maintain your visit via phone.
      3. If Dr. Sadoughi determines that your issue may need an in-person examination, be assured that our office has taken every precaution to keep “in-person” appointments safe.
