Telemedicine & COVID-19 Safety Protocols
It is a primary goal of Piedmont Internal Medicine to be accessible to our patients even when they are unable to come into the office. Piedmont Internal Medicine is proud to offer telemedicine Virtual Visits and Telehealth Services for all our patients! Telemedicine is a healthcare tool covered by insurance and medicare that allows for office visits to be conducted remotely using your computer, tablet, or Smart Phone. Examples of virtual visits would be consultations for sick visits, medication refills, follow up on test results, and problem-focused visits. The quality of telemedicine has been proven by extensive research and demonstrations.
Telemedicine is considered a safe, cost-effective, and convenient way to provide healthcare services. Our patients will have a face to face appointment with one of our experienced providers who will provide an in-depth appointment addressing your concerns. If necessary, the provider can prescribe medication, complete refills, and refer for additional testing just as though you are in the office. Virtual Visits will be conducted through our user-friendly and secure patient portal MyChart.
Charges may be rendered for communication with a provider through MyChart, Phone calls, Telemedicine visits or private emails regarding your health concerns.
Whether using the MyChart app or the MyChart website, the following instructions will guide you through the process.
