1. Treat a telemedicine visit just like a regular visit.
Plan for your appointment like you would an in-person visit. Write down any questions, concerns or symptoms you’re experiencing before the telehealth visit. If possible, know your vital signs, blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and weight, before the appointment.
If you are seeing a new caregiver or medial team, have your medical history and list of medications readily available.
During the appointment be sure to take notes, writing down any directions or treatment plans the doctor shares.
Remember, this is your time with your health care provider, be sure to ask questions and repeat any instructions your physician gave you during your visit. By doing this, you ensure that you heard everything correctly.
