Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the ability to meet with your doctor virtually, using technology similar to Skype® or FaceTime. While telemedicine was originally invented to provide medical care to people who live in remote places, today, telemedicine provides convenient access to your doctor regardless of your location.

In many situations, Dr. Toll doesn’t need to see you in person, as knowing your medical history is the most important part of many exams. He can talk to you about your symptoms through the program, and in addition to the video link, you can upload pictures for him to examine.

Why would I use telemedicine?

There are many reasons you might choose to use Dr. Toll’s telemedicine service. For example, if you’re traveling and come down with an illness, you can meet with Dr. Toll virtually to discuss your symptoms and get a prescription and recovery advice.

Alternatively, you might also choose to use his telemedicine service if you can’t secure a  babysitter or don’t want to bring your kids to the office with you. Or if you’re working on a weight loss program with Dr. Toll, telemedicine is a convenient way to check in and catch up on your progress. Whatever your reason for choosing telemedicine, you can benefit from the convenience this technology provides.

What should I expect from telemedicine?
