Telemedicine Q & A
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine allows you to meet with Dr. Grier through a secure video conferencing program. You can use your phone, tablet, or computer to access your appointments. You need a private room and a reliable internet connection.
What services are available through telemedicine?
Dr. Grier provides a wide variety of services through telemedicine.
When you take medication regularly, such as birth control or other hormonal therapies, you need to meet with Dr. Grier occasionally. She monitors your symptoms and the effectiveness of your prescription, and can adjust or change your medications if necessary.
Dr. Grier also offers telemedicine follow-up appointments. For example, you can choose telemedicine to discuss your lab results, including blood tests, Pap smears, and STD tests. She also offers well-woman visit follow-ups to talk though any lifestyle adjustments or new therapies.
Treatment plan observation
If Dr. Grier provides a treatment plan for a condition like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), you can have telemedicine appointments to review your treatment plan, symptoms, and overall health. These appointments allow Dr. Grier to ensure your treatment plan is working.
If you have a chronic health condition, Dr. Grier offers chronic care services through telemedicine appointments. You can discuss your symptoms, treatment plans, and other factors for issues like high blood pressure or diabetes, which can cause complications during pregnancy.
For example, if you have preeclampsia, you can use your at-home blood pressure cuff to monitor your blood pressure and use telemedicine to share your results and get advice from Dr. Grier to protect your health.
Some services need to be completed in person. For example, if you need a Pap smear, ultrasound, or another procedure, you will need to book an in-office appointment.
What are the benefits of telemedicine?
Telemedicine offers many benefits. It’s incredibly convenient as you can log into your appointment from anywhere. You don’t need to fight traffic to drive to the office. As long as you have access to a private room, you don’t even need to take time off work. Telemedicine can save you money on gas, parking, and childcare.
