If not now, when?
WHAT IS TELEMEDICINE?
Telemedicine refers to medical appointments with your doctor over the phone or video. While not every ailment or symptom can be treated this way, many can be. Dr. Tim is offering Telemedicine so that anyone in the world can benefit from his integrative wellness support, and find hope and healing.
- Functional Medicine when and where it is convenient for you
- Lab testing mailed to & from your home with results sent to your doctor
- Personalized dietary & lifestyle plans
- Supplement and/or herbal recommendations
Through Telemedicine we can complete a highly detailed investigation, including a history with laboratory analysis, and provide you with a comprehensive plan of treatment suggestions for you. You may choose to follow-up with us via Telemedicine visits or in-person at any time.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TELEMEDICINE?
Telemedicine allows you to overcome distance and time constraints so that you can receive exquisite and personalized care from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a phone or a computer!
HOW DOES TELEMEDICINE WORK?
Schedule an appointment with us, and Dr. Tim will call you to discuss your concerns, health history, lab work and treatment options. This may include dietary guidelines, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, homeopathic protocols, lifestyle and exercise protocols, etc. We will provide you with all the tools to be successful
You don’t feel like yourself anymore. Your doctor says your fine, but your body says you’re not. You know there’s something wrong. Or perhaps you’ve just reached your limit with prescription drugs. Maybe your work is suffering because you don’t feel well. Parenting is full of struggle instead of joy. You’re not happy with the way you look. You’ve experimented with different diets. You have unexplained symptoms and you’re trying to connect the dots. You’re committed to your health, but you can’t do this on your own. I get it. We’ve been there. And we’ve made it my mission to help people like you get your life back. Because you deserve to be your best self and live your best life.
WHAT DOES THE TELEHEALTH APPROACH MEAN FOR OUR PRACTICE MEMBERS?
Invariably, most practice members who choose functional medicine are profoundly committed to their health. However, they may face obstacles that make it difficult for them to commit the necessary time and resources to see their provider on a regular basis. The use of telehealth technology reduces the burden on patients by eliminating time away from work, childcare concerns, and travel time and costs.
Deep patient relationships are even more important in the practice of functional medicine, as we look to connect environmental, lifestyle, and genetic factors to the root causes of your symptoms and/or condition(s).
WHAT ABOUT MY PRIVACY?
As with all of Dr. Tim’s appointments, your remote telemedicine sessions are completely private and confidential. You may choose to include family members or guests in your session; only Dr. Tim will be present on our side.
IS IT SECURE?
We use versions of ZOOM and Google Hangouts designed to protect patient confidentiality and comply with HIPAA and other consumer protection laws.
WILL INSURANCE PROVIDERS PAY FOR TELEHEALTH VISITS?
As you likely know, not all functional medicine visits are covered by insurance policies. This is true whether they are face-to-face or conducted remotely. Many states, however, have telehealth parity laws that require private payers to reimburse telemedicine visits as if they were conducted face-to-face. Laws vary from location to location, so you should become familiar with the laws in yours.
Functional medicine is a new frontier in health care. It questions the traditional approach of acute treatment and seeks to look at individual patient conditions in a new, more holistic way. It makes sense that practitioners are looking to new technologies that take into account the way that people live and interact today. Telemedicine and functional medicine are a natural fit.
WELLNESS is a daily practice!
