“Our patients have been very appreciative of both telephone and video visits,” says Dr. Sue Simmons of Maben Medical Clinic. “My first virtual video visit was with one of my 91-year-old patients with the help of his niece. When I asked how he thought it went, he said ‘good, I got to see my doctor!’”
If a 91-year-old patient can do a virtual visit, you can too! Virtual care allows you to follow up on conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes from the safety and convenience of home. A physician or nurse practitioner can also virtually evaluate and treat new complaints like sinus problems, cough, back pain, headache, red eye, heartburn, urinary problems and others.
