Introducing a new, convenient service to the patients of Dr. Weeks
In today’s world, you no longer need to visit a library to find information, take film to a drugstore to view your photos or go to the video store to select a movie. And now you don’t always have to make a visit to my office for a concerning condition.
The use of electronic communications to provide medical advice and treatment remotely is known as telemedicine, and I’m excited to announce that my office now offers it through Modernizing Medicine® and their app, modmed Telehealth™. This increasingly popular solution is available for download on your mobile device.
Using this convenient service can benefit you if:
- You’re busy and on the go or you can’t easily make it to the office because you’re housebound or live remotely
- You have a mild skin issue such as a bite, rash, minor burn or acne
Telemedicine doesn’t replace in-office visits, but it can be an added, effective and expedient way for you to consult with me on occasion, giving you faster diagnosis, treatment and assurance – or a recommendation for face-to-face care. You can easily snap and send photos and other information about your condition via a mobile device to receive a reply from me.
