Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a convenient, time-saving alternative to travelling to the JAX Family Care office to get the medical attention you need. Rather than physically coming in and seeing Dr. De La Hoz face to face, you can instead utilize technology to communicate with him remotely. You can get the assessment or advice you need from the comfort of your home, office, or hotel room. 

Telemedicine visits with JAX Family Care use high-definition video and high-quality audio with a secure connection so your data is safe. 

As you might imagine, not every service is available with telemedicine visits instead of office visits. Dr. De La Hoz may tell you to come to the office instead of booking a telemedicine visit if you need blood tests, imaging tests, immunizations, or any treatments provided in the office. 

Which services can I get with telemedicine?

Despite its limitations, telemedicine is available for lots of the services you need or get regularly at JAX Family Care. Using telemedicine, you can:

Make follow-up visits

If Dr. De La Hoz requests that you follow up after a visit to JAX Family Care for treatment, telemedicine gives you the opportunity to do so without having to come back in. 

Manage chronic disease

If you have chronic diseases such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, hypertension, and high cholesterol, frequent office visits can quickly become an inconvenience. Dr. De La Hoz makes it easier for you by offering chronic disease management telemedicine visits. 

Receive preventive care support

Certain types of preventive medicine are available with telemedicine. While you can’t get an immunization over video chat, you can get support for smoking cessation, nutritional counseling, or even a very basic physical exam. 

Manage your medications

If you take medications and need to check in about changing your dosage, you can do so with telemedicine. 

What are the advantages of telemedicine?

There are many advantages to utilizing telemedicine for some of your visits to JAX Family Care, including:

  • Less time spent travelling to the office
  • Fewer costs due to the lack of travel
  • Less time away from work
  • No chance of catching or spreading contagious illnesses
  • Less interference with your daily responsibilities
  • Reliable privacy

Of course, in-person visits continue to be available if you prefer them. However, you can always schedule a telemedicine visit instead if you have a particularly busy week, if you’re out of town, or if you don’t have reliable transportation.

Telemedicine is always available for chronic disease management, medication management, and other forms of health care. Book your next appointment by calling JAX Family Care or scheduling online today.
