Telemedicine allows you to access one-on-one time with your physician from the safety and convenience of your home or office. Skilled internist Man Duong, M.D., provides telehealth visits to follow up on treatment progress, diagnose certain conditions, and perform general physical exams from his office in Brawley, California. To book your telemedicine visit, call the office, or use the online scheduling tool today.
As more people stay home to preserve their health and the health of those around them, telemedicine is becoming a more popular way to access your physician for appointments that don’t include in-office procedures like blood draws or minor surgery. Like many other internists, Dr. Duong offers telemedicine appointments for your convenience.
Rather than going into the office for your appointment, you’ll use technology to communicate directly with Dr. Duong. This involves video chatting with your smartphone, tablet, or laptop so that Dr. Duong can see you. You’ll also be able to speak back and forth in real time and ask all of your health-related questions.
There’s a lot you can do with telemedicine. In fact, any appointment that doesn’t involve some in-office service may be available as a telemedicine appointment if it’s safer or more convenient for you. Telemedicine appointments can include:
Dr. Duong can perform a general, simplified physical examination during a telemedicine appointment. He views your overall appearance and performs simple tests, like checking your hearing by asking you to repeat phrases or helping you measure your heart rate.
If you receive an in-office treatment or service, you can avoid a second trip to the office by following up with Dr. Duong via telemedicine. He makes sure you aren’t experiencing unusual side effects and that you’re happy with the results of your treatment. He can also go over the results of bloodwork or other tests.
While you may still need to come in for certain services related to your chronic disease, Dr. Duong can evaluate your treatment progress with a telemedicine appointment in some cases. He can also make recommendations for changes to your management plan.
During a typical telemedicine appointment, you’ll connect with Dr. Duong using an electronic device. Once connected, Dr. Duong asks relevant questions about the reason for your visit. He might ask for updates on your treatment progress or details about any symptoms you have.
During your appointment, you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions. Just like an in-person appointment, Dr. Duong addresses concerns related to your health. He can write new prescriptions, adjust current prescriptions, or make recommendations for additional health services or lifestyle changes.
