Staying healthy means getting the health care you need, including sick visits and preventive care. But getting to our office isn’t always convenient, especially if you’ve got a busy schedule or you depend on someone else to accompany you.
At Affordable & Restorative Health, Winston Griner, MD, offers telehealth visits to help you get the care you need in the comfort of your home.
Here’s how telehealth could benefit you.
Telehealth visits: What to expect
Not surprisingly, the use of telehealth services and “virtual office visits” peaked during the pandemic. But even before COVID-19, telehealth services had been increasing in popularity as more people recognized the benefits they offer.
With telehealth services, Dr. Griner’s patients enjoy the same level of personalized care they receive during an in-person visit. Dr. Griner reviews your medical history and your symptoms, discusses your health concerns, diagnoses your medical problems, and prescribes treatment, all without stepping foot inside our office in Nashville, Tennessee.
For senior patients with chronic issues like heart disease or diabetes, Dr. Griner also offers the 100Plus® health program with remote monitoring. The 100Plus program lets Dr. Griner manage and even adjust your treatment without requiring frequent office visits.
Benefits of telehealth
Telehealth offers plenty of benefits, depending on your own unique needs. Here are four of the biggest benefits it can offer you and your family.
Your life is busy, and sometimes, it can seem almost impossible to find the time you need to book a visit and travel to and from our office. With telehealth, you can schedule a visit on your own time, and you don’t even need to spend any time in our waiting room. Connect with Dr. Griner at your appointed time without waiting or delays.
Even though our practice is conveniently located, it’s nowhere near as convenient as your own home. With telehealth, there’s no need to worry about gas, traffic, or weather. You can schedule your visit from your home, your office, or wherever is most convenient for you.
Even though a doctor’s visit is good for your health, that doesn’t mean the experience isn’t stressful. When you’re stressed, it’s a lot easier to forget some of the questions or concerns you may have. By having your visit in your own home where you’re most relaxed and comfortable, you’ll have the time to ask about your concerns and build a stronger doctor-patient relationship.
Gets you care when you need it
Whether you’re sick or well, delaying medical care because of your schedule is never a good idea. Telehealth lets you schedule your visit when it suits your needs, so you can get the care you need to stay healthy at every age.
Reduces illness exposure
Social distancing has played a vital role in staying healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. But even during “normal” times, visiting a doctor’s office, urgent care center, or other health care setting can expose you to colds, flus, and other germs.
By accessing care in your own home, you avoid this, potentially reducing your risk of getting sick. And if you’re the one who is sick, you can keep from spreading your illness to others.
Don’t let a busy schedule or other obstacle keep you from getting the care you need to stay healthy. Call the office at 615-903-2401 or use our online form to schedule your telehealth visit with Dr. Griner today.
