What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine at Complete Rural Medicine includes a virtual meeting with a family medicine provider via your phone, tablet, or another electronic device. It offers the convenience many patients prefer, allowing you to avoid long office wait times and save money on gas.

If you develop new or unusual symptoms, are out of town, or need a prescription refill, telemedicine may be a good option for you. 

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

  • No waiting in an office

Is telemedicine right for me?

What should I expect during telemedicine appointments?

During telemedicine visits at Complete Rural Medicine provider, your specialist calls you during your scheduled appointment time and offers the following:

Medical history review

Your specialist asks about your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle habits, and medication or dietary supplement regimen.

Virtual physical exam 

If you have visible symptoms, you can show your provider during a virtual physical exam. If you need blood tests, a tissue swab, urine tests, heart- or lung-function testing, or other diagnostic tests, you likely need to attend an in-office visit.

Treatment plan

Your specialist recommends a treatment that best suits your unique needs. They offer medication prescriptions, prescription refills, weight loss management, and specialist referrals when necessary.

A Complete Rural Medicine provider may recommend you take dietary supplements, try over-the-counter medicines, or make healthy lifestyle changes. They might suggest altering your diet, wearing a brace, reducing stress, getting more sleep, or exercising more. Avoid smoking and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.
