Virtual Visits Q & A
What is a virtual visit?
Advances in technology have significantly expanded your opportunities to communicate with your doctor and other health care providers. The team at Pain, Spine & Rehab Associates provides virtual visits via a HIPAA-compliant platform. Like a video conference, you and your providers can see each other and talk over a secure connection.
Why would I choose a virtual visit?
Modern life is busy — there’s no doubt about it. Between work, commuting, and family responsibilities for your kids and parents, there’s not a lot of time left for anything. The team at Pain, Spine & Rehab Associates understands and wants to make health care as convenient as possible for you.
While you should have in-office appointments for initial consultations and treatments such as joint injections, many other issues can find a resolution virtually. For example, you might need to refill a prescription.
Alternatively, if you’ve been having treatments with the team, and wake up in pain or have a new sensation in your body, you might want to check with your provider before making time to come into the office. During a virtual appointment, you can show your provider where the problem is, and they can observe your movement to assess your condition.
What are the benefits of virtual visits?
Virtual visits save you time, money, and stress.
First, traffic is a nightmare, especially if you commute into Washington, DC, for work. You can have your virtual visit from anywhere, including your office or a meeting room — anywhere that you can have enough privacy to talk to your doctor.
Also, while the team at Pain, Spine & Rehab Associates does their best to keep wait times to a minimum, the last thing you want to do is spend your time waiting, especially if you just need to check-in for a prescription refill.
Additionally, you don’t need to worry about organizing extra child or elder care with a virtual appointment.
Most insurance plans cover virtual visits, so this convenient option shouldn’t incur any additional costs. You don’t need to risk losing money by not being at work or by having to pay extra for child or elder care. Also, you won’t spend money on gas, since you can have your appointment from anywhere. If your insurance carrier does not cover virtual visits, the Pain, Spine & Rehab Associates office works with you to set up an affordable payment plan.
Virtual visits allow you to get the health care you need conveniently. You don’t need to stress about finding the time, dealing with traffic, or whether or not you can slip away from work. Take your doctor’s appointment off the list of responsibilities that add stress to your day.
