The Benefits of Telehealth During the COVID-19 Crisis and Beyond

It’s no secret that COVID-19 has turned the world upside down. While it may be harder to leave your home because of social distancing measures and the risk of infection, you can still get the medical attention you need with telehealth.

At Life Point Medical, LLC in Clayton, Georgia, Timothy Beck, MD, provides a full range of health care services, from annual wellness exams and chronic care to urgent care visits. And, as part of these extensive offerings, he also has virtual telehealth — or telemedicine — appointments that you can attend from the privacy of your own home or office.

Here’s what you need to know about telehealth and its numerous advantages that go far beyond the COVID-19 crisis.

How “virtual” health care works

When you use telehealth services, you meet with Dr. Beck remotely instead of going to his office. This video appointment provides a face-to-face meeting without any of the inconveniences that come with a traditional office visit — or unnecessary exposure to harmful viruses.

During your telehealth appointment, you meet with Dr. Beck using two-way, high definition video, so it feels as though you’re in the same room, even if you’re miles apart. You can cover a variety of health care needs with these sessions, including:

Dr. Beck offers telehealth appointments for patients of all ages, so you can always get the expert medical care you need, whether there’s a pandemic or not.

Plus, when you don’t have to go to a clinic, you reduce your chances of exposing yourself or others to infectious illnesses, such as colds, the flu, or COVID-19. Your insurance should cover telemedicine appointments, and Dr. Beck also offers self-pay options for uninsured patients.

What to expect during your telehealth appointment

All you need to have is a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a camera. You simply request an appointment at Life Point Medical, LLC by calling the office or by booking an appointment online.
