Gain access to reliable healthcare in the comfort of your own home with West Coast Family Medical Care.

Telemedicine, also called telehealth, allows you access to healthcare without needing an in-person visit. It’s primarily done online on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. There’s a wide variety of specialized care available through telehealth, such as chronic health issue management, prescription management, and physical therapy.

West Coast Family Medical Care provides safe and convenient healthcare services through our telemedicine services. Our professional physicians can serve you at your most convenient time and can deliver quality medical care advice both in-person and over the screen.

What to Expect During Your Telemed Visit

At West Coast Family Medical Care, our healthcare practitioners offer clinical and primary services for our patients who cannot visit our office and prefer to stay at home. Your virtual health appointment with us may include:

You can virtually consult your primary physician if you’re feeling sick and can’t leave the house. During your consultation, your doctor will ask about your symptoms and concerns. Consultations usually last ten to fifteen minutes, and you can get your diagnosis after your assessment.

Through telemedicine, getting help for your mental health is now more accessible than ever. It includes counseling and other forms of psychotherapy that can help with your struggles. Telemedicine also provides a more private setting for people to be more comfortable when seeking mental healthcare services.

The pandemic has made chronic disease management challenging for millions of people. Through telemedicine, patients with chronic diseases can get their check-ups without visiting clinics and hospitals in person. Our staff can also see more patients in a day, giving them a chance to enjoy more free time and a better work-life balance.

Instead of traveling back to the clinic, patients who need a follow-up consultation can also rely on our telemedicine services. Through your online consultation, your physician can get an update on your health status and provide medical advice while you save time and effort.

Telemedicine is possible throughout a patient’s pregnancy, from regular screenings to the postpartum period. It makes check-ups more convenient for pregnant women, especially those with high-risk pregnancies. Some obstetric services delivered through virtual care are prenatal care check-ups, at-home monitoring, and lactation support.

Your physicians and pharmacists can also check on your medication journey through telemedicine. They can inspect whether you’re responding positively to your authorized medication or need a change in prescription. Telemedicine also allows them to monitor if you’re taking your medication according to schedule.

Why Choose Telemedicine Services

Quality care should be accessible to everyone. With our telemedicine services, we can provide you with credible and expert medical care wherever, whenever.

Here’s why numerous patients opt for telemedicine services:

Online consultations help stop the spread of infectious diseases since fewer patients need in-clinic visits. This, in turn, protects the most vulnerable and susceptible, such as the immunocompromised and seniors, from getting too much exposure and worsening their existing conditions.

Remote health visits make dealing with busy schedules and finding a day to accommodate your health appointment easy. Guardians and patients don’t need to take time off from work or arrange for childcare services since they can get consultations virtually.

Even with good insurance, doctor and therapist fees can be expensive. Since telemedicine appointments cost less than in-person visits, they lessen out-of-pocket costs, resulting in more people gaining access to medical care. In addition, telemedicine can lead to fewer secondary expenses, such as gas and other miscellaneous fees.

Telemedicine services grant patients in rural areas access to medical care services. Since telemed visits are only done through phone or video, patients residing miles away from clinics don’t need to travel far and spend much while still getting the care that they require.
