Our doctors are now offering televisits to new and existing patients.

We know that the pandemic has certainly impacted all of our lives lately. Sheltering in place, social distancing, working from home while also making sure that your kids are still going through their virtual schooling…it’s a lot! So what happens when springtime brings a nasty bout of allergies that you just can’t seem to get under control, or your child bumps his head and you’re concerned? This is where a televisit with our Woodridge IL family doctors can help. Contact our offices in Woodridge, Lombard, and Lemont IL to learn more.

What is a Woodridge Televisit?

Now you can get the same care you always received from our office and team of medical professionals, the only difference is that we will be doing it through a computer screen rather than in person. These virtual visits make it possible for our patients to still see a doctor, get the care they need, and provide peace of mind without having to step foot outside.

When can a televisit be used for?

While a Woodridge televisit is not to be used for true medical emergencies, most checkups, evaluations, monitoring, and follow-ups can be done virtually. We can diagnose or treat a wide range of health problems and also provide ways to treat your symptoms. You could benefit from a televisit if you are looking to evaluate or treat symptoms of:

  • Pinkeye
  • Respiratory infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Cold and flu
  • Fever
  • Allergies and sinus problems
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Sore throat
  • Rashes and skin conditions

If you or your child has just received a new medication these appointments allow us to monitor the medication to see if it’s effective or not. Is your medication running low? No problem! You don’t have to come into the office to have the prescription filled. Our Woodridge IL physicians can refill a prescription during your televisit. We also continue to monitor and help you manage chronic health problems like diabetes and hypertension through these online appointments.

What are the benefits of a televisit?

Woodridge televisits provide our patients with medical care even during these unique and ever-changing times. We know a doctor can provide an amazing source of comfort. You can schedule an appointment whenever it works with your schedule and all you have to do is get on your phone or computer and you’ll be instantly connected. It’s fast, effective, safe, and cost-effective.

Now, no matter how close you are to the Woodridge, Lemont, or Lombard IL offices, our team of doctors and pediatricians can make it easier for your whole family to get the checkups, care, and monitoring they need through televisits.
