What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is simply the practice of medicine by way of phone or video call communication, primarily used when in-person communication between doctor and patient is not possible or not recommended. The sheer importance of telemedicine cannot be overstated. By March 2020, when the United States began to see a significant uptick in coronavirus cases, telemedicine quickly became one of the most common methods for doctor and patients to communicate. It also became the most preferred method.
In fact, a Massachusetts General Hospital study https://www.healthitanswers.net/telemedicine-vs-in-person-visits-which-is-higher-quality-2/ showed that 62% of patients felt that telemedicine visits were more effective than in-person office visits. The most common reason provided…the telemedicine visit was more efficient when the patient did not have to expend travel time in addition to the typical waits experienced at the office. The second most common reason…the patient felt that the telemedicine experience was much more personal and detailed than an in-person office visit.
Does Ehormones MD offer Testosterone and/or HGH Therapy by Telemedicine?
The short answer…YES! Both federal and state governments have worked together with the FDA and DEA to relax the telemedicine laws, such that patients can now do simple Blood Work or an at-home saliva test. Within 2 to 3 days after the test is performed, the patient can speak with the doctor just 2 to 3 days later. The overwhelming majority of our competitors do not offer telemedicine because it is not an easy process for the provider to become licensed for telemedicine. First, the provider must have a DEA license. Then, he or she must maintain a license to practice telemedicine in the state in which the patient is living. And to top it all off, the doctor must also have a license to practice medicine in the respective state. This is not very common for other clinics, but Ehormones MD is able to practice telemedicine with patients in 35 of the 50 states. That said, if a patient prefers an in-person doctor visit, Ehormones MD has 34 local offices spanning the United States. Ehormones MD physicians take fantastic care of their patients, whether the appointment is telemedicine or in-office.
