Telehealth Q & A
What is telemedicine?
Dr. Anthony Avitabile at RiverCity Family Medicine in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is now offering Telemedicine. Dr. Avbitable’s number one priority is staff and patient safety. By scheduling a virtual appointment, the patient will still have the ability to meet with the doctor face-to-face, but it will be held in a remote place whether it be at home, work, or any convenient location.
During the virtual appointment, you will be able to speak with the doctor and discuss symptoms and/or share photos of what you are experiencing. Dr. Avitabile will go over medical records/history and discuss next steps to ensure the patient is healthy.
Why would I use telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the future, in most cases you do not need to go to a doctor’s physical office to be helped and treated. For example, if you are at work and start to experience symptoms or an illness, you can schedule a virtual appointment with Dr. Avitabile to assess your health and discuss if you need medication sent to a pharmacy near you. If you are experiencing symptoms such as cough, sore throat, sneezing, fever, or fatigue, it would be best to schedule a virtual appointment where Dr. Avitabile can evaluate your condition. Everyone can benefit from the convenience this new technology provides. As RiverCity Family Medicine is one of the few healthcare clinics in the area providing telemedicine, you are guaranteed to receive top quality service by our staff members.
