The Importance of In-Office Visits

Telemdeicine vs. In-Office Visits. Pen with a medical board and stethoscope.

Technology is a saving grace during COVID-19, bringing everyone together socially when we need to be separate physically. Telemedicine became the safe option to speak with Provider about health concerns, but over the phone visits can only help to a certain point. That is why there is importance of in-office visits. Just like talking to our friends and family on the phone is good but not as great as seeing them in person. The same is for a Provider with your health concerns, they can speak with you about your symptoms but cannot observe you or run the necessary tests in-office.

Providers perform a full examination when they see a patient for in-office visits, this allows them to observe symptoms, conditions, and run tests for a full diagnosis. Is it possible to examine yourself and make a full diagnosis? Not always. As you know, sticking a spoon to your tongue and using your iPhone flashlight to see into your throat is not a legitimate examination. A Provider notices concerns the patient could not see originally and can confirm when there is a real medical concern or not.

We live in a fear driven world now where a cough or sneeze can lead us to spiral into thinking the worse of our health. Seeing a Provider, in-office for a full examination and receiving necessary testing will bring peace of mind.
