How Telehealth Services Benefit You

Telehealth or virtual appointments are the new normal in the medical world and have been serving as an effective way to reach patients in a way that is much more effective and efficient than ever before. Gone are the days of calling a queue to request an appointment that’s three weeks out, where you have to travel for 30 minutes to wait another hour to see a busy provider who has five minutes to discuss your most prevalent issue. Now, you can simply open a convenient app on your smartphone and send a private message to your provider and get a response or schedule an appointment, usually the same day.

At Shark Primary Care and Shark Addiction Treatment, we utilize the latest technology to bring affordable, convenient primary health care and addiction recovery treatment services to those who need it most, without the weeks-long wait. Simply download the Medici app on your smartphone, and schedule an appointment today - doctors code is Shark. Let’s take a closer look at just a few ways telehealth services can benefit you.

Improves Access to Care

In a perfect world, everyone would have affordable healthcare insurance and a designated primary care provider available to help them when they need it. Additionally, every person would have a reliable vehicle and a job that allowed them to attend appointments as needed. However, in the hustle and bustle of today’s world, attending an in-person appointment is a hassle that most people don’t want to attempt to deal with. By offering virtual services, those without vehicles, childcare, or the ability to come into the clinic are able to receive the services they need.

Increases Privacy

Don’t want your job or your partner to know that you are attending an appointment? That’s okay. Telehealth services offer you the convenience of attending your appointment over the phone and getting prescriptions or orders that you need without mentioning it to anyone else. The HIPAA-compliant app, Medici safeguards your private medical information and provides peace of mind.

Get Help When You Need It

When it comes to addiction recovery, as with some acute illnesses, there is no time to wait for the next business day's appointments. Virtual appointments allow you to get the help that you need it when you need it. Send messages and have video chats with your primary care provider or your addiction specialist to prevent relapse or hospitalizations.

At Shark Primary Care and Shark Addiction Treatment, we harness the power of telehealth to bring our services to all of those who need them. To get the support you need, visit us online or contact our clinic to schedule your evaluation and get started on your road to recovery today.
