Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth uses technologies like tablets, cellphones, and computers to exchange medical information over the phone or the internet. It provides a quick and convenient way to meet with your provider if you’re at home, work, or on vacation.

Pro-Health Urgent Care of Midland regularly offers telehealth appointments, including on evenings and weekends, ensuring everyone can access the health care they need.

What services does telehealth provide?

The providers at Pro-Health Urgent Care of Midland use telehealth to:

  • Discuss the results of blood work, urinalysis, and diagnostic imaging
  • Monitor treatments over time
  • Diagnose acute conditions, like sore throats or congestion
  • Refill prescription medication
  • Provide referrals to specialists

You can also schedule a telehealth appointment if you’re experiencing unusual symptoms or have a concern about your general health.

What are the benefits of telehealth?

Telehealth offers various benefits compared to traditional in-office visits. For example, it’s easy to access and prevents you from having to waste gas or fight traffic.

What’s more, by meeting with your provider online or over the phone, you don’t have to sit in a waiting room or be exposed to others who might be sick. If you’re a caregiver, telehealth keeps you from having to find a babysitter. 

Is telehealth always the best solution?

Telehealth is convenient, but it isn’t always the best solution. If you experience symptoms like abdominal pain, an earache, or blurred vision, you might need to visit Pro-Health Urgent Care of Midland in person. That’s especially true if your provider needs to conduct in-person testing like blood work, urinalysis, or diagnostic imaging.

What happens during a telehealth appointment?

Pro-Health Urgent Care of Midland tailors telehealth visits to each individual’s needs. That said, most appointments follow a similar format. 

First, your provider reviews your medical records and asks about your symptoms, including when they started, if they respond to at-home treatments, and if any activities make them worse.

Next, your provider conducts a telehealth exam. You might have to adjust your computer, tablet,  or phone, depending on the reason for your visit. For example, if you’re experiencing knee pain, your provider might ask you to point the camera at your knee so they can assess it for swelling, bruising, or discoloration.

After making a diagnosis, your provider can make recommendations for treatment. That might include rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medication, or an in-person visit for further analysis.
