How to Prepare for Your Visit
Talking to your doctor online will be much like an in-person visit. Patients can easily prepare for the telemedicine appointment – some tips to consider:
- Find a quiet, private place to talk – away from children or pets. Be prepared to be away from distractions for 15 to 20 minutes
- Write down any questions that you may want to ask your doctor
- Charge or plug in your phone, computer or tablet; get some paper and a pen for taking notes. If you feel you may need anything such as a thermometer or asthma inhaler, have that with you, too.
- Be prepared to discuss basic symptoms, current medications and other pertinent information
