Telemedicine offers a convenient and flexible option for consulting with a reproductive specialist. The Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility team allows patients to schedule virtual appointments using the devices of their choice.
At Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility, we are dedicated to giving potential parents every opportunity to access the information and resources they need to achieve a healthy pregnancy.
Whether you’re a new patient or someone we’ve been seeing for a while, we can now see you remotely using telemedicine. This is especially essential during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
For new-patient appointments and follow-up visits to discuss results and next steps, you simply login using a desktop or laptop computer, or just a smartphone!
How Telemedicine Works
When you call us to set up your appointment, we will give you the details about our doctors’ telemedicine sites and what you need to do to login.
If you are an existing patient, your RGI specialist will have your records in hand during the appointment and will speak directly with you via videoconference technology. While procedures cannot be performed remotely, your RGI doctor will be able to conduct all consultations just as would occur during any face-to-face visit. This includes discussing your medical history, addressing your specific needs and concerns, answering your questions, explaining upcoming procedures, and discussing results and/or next steps.
Telemedicine Connects You with Your Doctor
For the first visit, you’ll complete all necessary forms in our patient portal ahead of time so we can prepare for the appointment. During the conference, the doctor will review your forms with you, discuss your needs and what types of testing or treatment you should expect, explain what to do next and cover anything else that needs to be discussed.
For new and existing patients, a nurse may reach out to you after your appointment regarding any medications to discuss or procedures to be scheduled. But your appointment will be with your RGI doctor. You will have your virtual visit with your actual physician.
