Urology and Telemedicine

With so many urological conditions out there, urologists can treat a vast variety of different maladies. You should know that not every urological situation requires an in-person appointment. Indeed, in many cases, you can get all of the information you need to proceed by attending an appointment with your urologist virtually over the internet. Here’s what you should know about urology and telemedicine.    

The Advantages of Telemedicine

Telemedicine has plenty of advantages especially when it comes to urology. For example, if you’re experiencing a frequent need to urinate at night or have just started to suffer from erectile dysfunction, making a virtual appointment with a urologist is fast, convenient, and effective. 

You’ll be able to get enough information across for your urologist to make a decision and either schedule a diagnostic test or recommend a particular treatment. 

When to Make a Virtual Appointment with a Urologist?

It’s best to make a virtual appointment with your urologists when you either have a quick question, something relatively routine to discuss or when you’re sick. When you’re suffering from a urological issue while sick with something like COVID-19, or the flu, you can still get the urological advice you need by making a virtual appointment. 

That’s the beauty of telemedicine, your doctors can be there for you when you need them even when you can’t make it to the facility yourself.

How to Handle your Telemedicine Appointment

How to Handle your Telemedicine Appointment

 

With all the COVID-19 social distancing measurements in place, it is difficult to get into a medical facility to talk with a professional face-to-face. In these instances, telemedicine appointments are not only easier to manage and follow through but, are recommended! In-person visits are mostly discouraged until the entire COVID-19 pandemic begins to sort itself out. Surgeries, scans, and other procedures are truly the only reason you need to have in-person visits. All other questions, concerns and details may be sorted out on a telemedicine visit. These may either be over the telephone, or on a video conference.

 

How to Prepare for a Telemedicine Visit

 

Z Urology is proud to offer telemedicine visits to all our patients. Now, the most important part about telemedicine appointments, is ensuring that your insurance provider covers them. You don’t want to deal with your insurance provider informing you after a simple telemedicine appointment that the visit wasn’t covered.

Preparation for the telemedicine visit is also recommended. First, you’re going to want to ensure any of the technology being used is fully function and maintaining a connection. You don’t want your phone to die, internet to disconnect or any other error in between to happen mid-appointment. Second, if there are any visible problems that you have detected, images taken prior to the examination can help a lot.

Finally, any important prior medical issues, problems you have been experiencing and any questions you may have, should be written down prior to the appointment. These questions will all be able to be gone through but, you should have a head-start on the visit to ensure everything gets covered.

If you have any questions for a Urologist and you want to book a telemedicine appointment, then contact Z Urology as soon as possible. We are accepting all patients for telemedicine and we encourage you to let us know.
