Are you having any issues with your feet, like calluses or plantar fasciitis? Have you injured your feet in any way? If so and if you need the services of a podiatrist, you may be inclined to go see one in-person. However, you don’t have to go anywhere in order to see a podiatrist; instead, you can see one online or speak to one over the phone! This is telemedicine and Hicksville Podiatry is happy to provide it to you. It offers advice, diagnosis, and even recommendations for care, all at home. If that’s the kind of care you want, then get in touch with us for a telemedicine visit with Hicksville Podiatry in Hicksville, NY!
What can telemedicine do?
Telemedicine (or telecare) is the remote treatment of patients via telecommunications technologies. With this kind of care, a patient can stay at home but still get the treatment he or she needs, like treatment for common issues with the feet, minor foot injuries, or even foot complications caused by a chronic condition like diabetes. Here at Hicksville Podiatry, we can help you via telemedicine whenever you might need us, even if it’s on an ongoing basis.
Sometimes telemedicine is the best kind of care to get. Whenever you don’t want to or shouldn’t leave your home for any reason, opt for telemedicine. It has the additional benefit of reduced costs!
What are the types of telemedicine?
There are a few different types of telemedicine. There’s telemedicine via a phone call, and this might be good enough for your needs. However, it might not offer the kind of face-to-face, hands-on care you want. The second option is email communication, but it has the same limitations. However, if all you need is just some basic advice or to follow up with a podiatrist, either one of these first two options will work for you. The third option is a virtual visit over online video chat. This offers the face-to-face care you may prefer, and it may be better for having certain issues diagnosed and treated.
Here at Hicksville Podiatry, we can offer any type of telemedicine you prefer. You can call, email, or video chat with our podiatrist, Dr. Davinder Bhela DPM, who can provide any advice you need, as well as a limited diagnosis and recommendations for care.
