Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine gives you the ability to get medical care online. You use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to meet with your physician through video conferencing.

With telemedicine services, the Apollo Physicians team can provide care to people outside Sacramento, especially those living in areas struggling with a shortage of primary care physicians.

What services are available through telemedicine?

Apollo Physicians is a primary care practice with board-certified family and internal medicine specialists. Their caring team offers comprehensive care for the physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral challenges faced by people of all ages, from newborns through those in their retirement years.

You might be surprised to learn that nearly all the same services provided in the office can be done through telemedicine. This includes evaluating your health, diagnosing the cause of your symptoms, creating treatment plans, and giving you the care you need.

With today’s technology, your vital signs (heartbeat, blood pressure, and weight) can be obtained from home. Since telemedicine is done through video conferencing, your provider can see problems like skin rashes or injuries. And they can send prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy.

Your provider can also order specialized equipment you use at home to monitor your heart rate, lung function, and blood pressure. Many of these devices have wireless capabilities and can automatically transmit information to your provider.

Some services can’t be delivered through telemedicine. For example, if you need bloodwork or diagnostic imaging (X-rays, CT scan, MRI, etc.), you’ll need to schedule an in-house appointment.

What health conditions are treated through telemedicine?

The range of care provided by the team at Apollo Physicians includes a long list of health conditions. It’s safe to say that they diagnose and treat every condition. A few examples include:

  • Pediatrics (well-child, sick visits, developmental screenings)
  • Women’s health (birth control prescriptions, menopause management)
  • Men’s health (including erectile dysfunction [ED])
  • Chronic disease management (diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol)
  • Preventive health care
