Telehealth Q&A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth at Joel Wellness Clinic consists of medical evaluations, diagnoses, and treatments you can receive virtually via your phone, tablet, or another electronic device. 

Telehealth allows you to see Dr. Joel from your home, office, or even your car without traveling to the office. She can see you virtually for medical appointments related to diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, hormone problems, arthritis, obesity, other conditions, or illnesses.

Joel Wellness Clinic also offers same-day visits available for complaints like cough, sinus issues, ear infection, flu-like symptoms, isolated joint pain, rash or other acute short sick visits. These visits are available via phone call.

What are the benefits of telehealth?

Some of the many benefits associated with telehealth at Joel Wellness Clinic include:

  • Convenience
  • Time savings
  • Cost savings
  • No need to take off work
  • No need for childcare
  • No sick patient exposure
  • Complete privacy

You receive the same exceptional level of care with telehealth visits as you would with in-person appointments. In addition, Dr. Joel and her staff maintain the highest level of patient confidentiality. 

What should I expect during telehealth appointments?

Prior to your visit, please have your weight, BP, and pulse rate ready if possible to facilitate your treatment.

During your scheduled telehealth appointment time, Dr. Joel calls you via Athenahealth, phone, or Zoom. Prior to the scheduled call, she or the office staff will provide the link for your meeting. 

If you have diabetes, hormone imbalance, nutritional deficiencies, or high blood pressure, she can assess your blood work and make changes to your treatment regimen when needed. 

If your goal is weight loss, Dr. Joel develops a custom meal plan and exercise regimen to help you reach your goal weight and keep lost weight off for good.

During your telehealth appointments, she might recommend:

  • Diet changes
  • Meal replacements
  • Other dietary supplements
  • More exercise
  • Medications
  • Inhalers
  • Injections
  • Behavioral therapy
  • Skin biopsies
  • Further diagnostic testing

Dr. Joel can refer you or your family members to specialists as needed for complex medical problems or surgical procedures.

When should I schedule telehealth visits?

Schedule telehealth visits with Dr. Joel and her team whenever you experience new or unusual symptoms or have questions and concerns about your health. 

Telehealth visits are an excellent way of renewing if you are on controlled substances which require a 3-month follow-up visit.

You can book follow-up telehealth appointments to help you properly manage an illness or chronic disease but need to attend in-person visits for annual physicals and diagnostic testing.
