Weight Loss Services Offered In Columbus, OH

If you’ve attempted to lose weight by yourself after doing your own research, you might feel disheartened by a lack of results. Even a weight loss of 10% of your total body weight can produce measurable health improvements to your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar.

Choosing a weight loss program supervised by a weight loss doctor is a fantastic way to ensure that you are in the hands of a capable medical professional who can answer any and all questions you will have on your journey, ensuring you are well taken care of the entire process to assist you with achieving your goals.

Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine allows you to visit the team at Integrative Wellness Center from anywhere you’d like. It involves communications with phone calls and high-definition video chat. Whether you’re out of town, have a contagious illness, or are immunocompromised, telemedicine might be the right option for your next appointment. 

While you can’t access all medical services with telemedicine, it allows you to skip appointments that don’t require you to be in the office in person for any particular tests or treatments. The team can update your care plan or detail the results of any recent medical tests that weren’t available to you immediately. 

As long as you have access to a reliable internet connection, you can simplify your care and conveniently get your provider’s input with telemedicine. 

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

There are many benefits to consider that you can enjoy from using telemedicine in your health care plan. Even if you only use telemedicine on occasion, it improves your access to your primary care providers at Integrative Wellness Center. 

Benefits of including telemedicine in your health care plan include:

  • Avoiding time off work
  • Reducing transportation time and costs
  • Eliminate conflicts with childcare or elder care
  • Avoiding missed appointments as you travel
  • Avoiding time spent in a waiting room
  • Avoiding contact with contagious illnesses outside the home
  • Reducing the spread of contagious illnesses you may have

In short, telemedicine can save you time and can enhance communications between you and your health care provider. 

Which services can I get with telemedicine?

While not all medical services and examinations can take place over the phone or with a video call, you can use telemedicine at Integrative Wellness Care for:

Medication management

Taking medications is an essential part of treatment for many chronic and acute conditions. The team at Integrative Wellness Center makes sure you’re using your medications correctly and can order prescription refills with telemedicine. 

Reviewing test results

If you had a recent X-ray or blood test, you don’t need to schedule a second office visit to go over the results. Instead, the team can discuss the results with you during a telemedicine visit. 

Basic examinations

Many minor health concerns, like skin conditions and colds, can be addressed without coming in for a visit. 

Post-treatment follow-ups

If you had a recent treatment or surgery, the team may want to check in with you during the recovery. You can use telemedicine to give them updates and get advice for aftercare. 

To determine if you can complete your next medical visit with telemedicine, call Integrative Wellness Center or book an appointment online today.
