Televisits Q & A

What are televisits?

Televisits are remote medical appointments with Dr. Lerro through audio and video methods on your phone or computer. During a televisit, you see and hear Dr. Lerro in real time. 

A televisit really isn’t too different from an in-person visit to the office. You’re still seeing the doctor, and she’s still giving you highly customized advice, recommendations, and treatment. But, by choosing the televisit route, you don’t have to leave your home to get the care you need. 

What are the advantages of televisits?

Televisits offer a new way to get health care services. Some of the many advantages include:

  • See the doctor from your own home
  • No time waiting in traffic
  • No exposure to others
  • Reasonable cost

As a board-certified physician who’s constantly updating her knowledge, training, and services, Dr. Lerro sees televisits as an important option for her patients in this new era of medicine. 

What types of medical care do televisits cover?

Televisits cover the management of chronic disease and other problems that adults face. Some of the many conditions that Dr. Lerro can help with during a televisit include: 

  • Heart disease
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • Arthritis
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Reflux disease
  • Irritable bowel disease

There are a number of other issues and conditions that Dr. Lerro regularly treats during televisits. If you’re not sure whether your problem requires a televisit or an in-person appointment, just call the office and ask which would work best for you. 

How do I get ready for a televisit?

Dr. Lerro uses a secure method for televisits to protect your privacy. Before the televisit, you need to make sure you have access to the proper communication channels. This may involve downloading an app on your smartphone or installing software on your computer. 

The team at Elsa L. Lerro, MD, provides instructions on how televisits are conducted.

Can you fill a prescription during a televisit?

If you need a new prescription or a refill of your current medication, Dr. Lerro can prescribe it during your visit. 

She can send the prescription to your local pharmacy so you can pick it up at your convenience. Many pharmacies also offer delivery if you’re unable to leave your home.
