How is a Telehealth appointment conducted?
Telehealth appointments are videoconferenced consultations. Patients sit in front of a computer at their GP Office and a software program (Skype the most common but some clinics use other technology) links your computer to our rooms. This provides an opportunity to involve your GP and your GP can assist our medical professional if a physical examination is required. You will see your medical professional on the screen and be able to discuss your condition in real time.
