In view of the current Corona Virus pandemic, I have introduced video consultations for existing patients in my practice. This allows me to help manage their rheumatology care but at the same time allow them, me and my staff, to comply with social distancing recommendations and reduce the risk of infection.
The main system I am using is called doxy.me. It is designed specifically for medical consultations, is secure, and very easy to use.
My office simply send a simple link to those with scheduled with appointments by email (it can be sent by text message as well). By clicking on that link patients enter a virtual waiting room and are in turn ‘brought into’ my virtual office for the consultation. No software downloads are required and it works well with most browsers.
Here’s a quick video about how it works.
If you want to know more about this service, please contact my office on firstname.lastname@example.org
At the moment I am only able to offer this service for existing patients.
If you have already arranged a video consultation with my office you can either click on the link in the email you will have received, of simply click on the link below to enter the waiting room.
