Have you ever wondered what the anatomy of a 15-minute online OBGYN Las Vegas appointment looks like?
Traditionally, when going to see your doctor and treating a condition, most of us are used to going through a sometimes painstaking process. That process includes scheduling an appointment, taking time off work, remembering to go to your appointment, and then driving to a clinic where you’ll spend hours getting treated.
Things have shifted when it comes to your doctor visit. According to the CDC, there was a week in 2020 with a 154% increase in telehealth visits when compared to the previous year. This means more people are trying out telemedicine.
Seeing your OBGYN Las Vegas doctor online is a new experience for most women. That’s why we have written this blog post to let you know what to expect during a typical visit, from scheduling the appointment to picking up your medications at the pharmacy.
My Virtual Physician has a team of experienced board-certified doctors who have been providing virtual doctor appointments to patients for over a year now so we have settled into a system that is very comfortable for both the physicians and our patients. Here, we will explain our simple telehealth process.
Sometimes seeing a doctor just can’t wait the weeks or months that most brick and mortar offices require. That’s why My Virtual Physician is here; we want you to have access to your OBGYN Las Vegas physician when you need it. We can get you scheduled within 24 hours, if not sooner!
Before you schedule your appointment, the first step is to verify that your symptoms can be addressed through an online virtual appointment. Click here to see a list of conditions that we can easily diagnose and treat online at this time.
Here are a handful of qualifying medical conditions we can treat online:
So you’ve confirmed that your symptoms can be diagnosed and treated using our telehealth OBGYN services. Congratulations, you are ready to schedule your first appointment with your online OBGYN! Here’s what to do:
Everything is confirmed and you show up virtually at the scheduled date and time to meet with your online OBGYN Las Vegas doctor, what does that look like?
First, you’ll get signed into our secure portal with your mobile phone or computer (with mic and camera). Instructions on how to access the portal are provided before your appointment.
Unlike a traditional doctor’s appointment, you won’t wait hours in the lobby until your doctor is finally available to see you! Our doctors are ready for you at your scheduled time, every time.
The next part of your visit will look a lot like a typical doctor's appointment. Your OBGYN virtual physician will chat with you about your concerns and/or symptoms to get a better understanding and to make a diagnosis and provide treatment options.
There may even be a physical self-exam. You could be led by your doctor through movements or exercises to gather more information. For example, during a UTI appointment, patients may be asked to tap on different parts of their body to determine the stage and location of the infection.
The last part of a typical online OBGYN doctor appointment is where the doctor provides treatment options based on his or her observations. If the best treatment is medication, our online doctors can send prescription orders directly to your local pharmacy for pickup or delivery.
So yes, it’s really that easy! In about the time it took you to read this blog post, you could have your OBGYN appointment done and over with and be on your way to feeling better now. Once you’ve tried telemedicine once, you’ll see how convenient it is.
In fact, a recent study found that the satisfaction rate of telehealth services was as high as 99%!
