Telemedicine or telehealth allows a patient and doctor to communicate face-to-face in two separate locations. This method of using virtual doctor appointments with your health professional has many advantages including as of late, helping stop the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Through the use of live chats with your doctor, photos, emails, and text messages, our telemedicine services at AMS Cardiology are here to provide better access to care at a time when our in-office visits are not possible. Our physicians can treat several issues and can also provide preoperative clearances, post-surgical follow-ups, prescription refills, and more through the use of our telehealth services. In the wake of this outbreak, using the Healow App can help your doctors provide care remotely.
Your AMS provider is still available to you using this secure, HIPAA compliant feature. Simply call our office and one of our staff members will schedule a telemedicine appointment. Fifteen minutes before your telemedicine appointment, you will receive an email or a text message. You can join the “virtual waiting room” using your computer by clicking on the email link, or from your cell phone by clicking the link in a text message. With our online doctor appointment scheduling system, we make connecting with your physician easier than ever before.
Stay connected and receive interactive health alerts and messages from your doctor as well as important updates about our office through the patient portal. Here you can live chat with your doctor, find your medical records, check on preoperative clearances, lab results, medications, and a host of other tools and resources to help you.
As always, AMS Cardiology is here for you and all your heart health needs. Whether you’re an existing patient or someone new, our cardiovascular specialists are still available to you through a virtual doctor appointment in this time of uncertainty. We can offer many services to our patients in the Bucks and Montgomery County, PA areas like cardiac imaging, preoperative clearances, echocardiography tests and so much more. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 215-517-1000. We look forward to caring for you and your loved ones using these new tools.
