What Is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is an approach to medicine that allows patients to seek diagnosis and treatment remotely over a phone call or video conference. It makes healthcare access more convenient and accessible for everyone, including patients who otherwise would need to wait to receive appropriate care. Telemedicine can help in a variety of situations, including:
- Patients who are housebound
- Lack of transportation
- Busy schedules with no time for visits
- Maintaining safe social distancing
- Medical concerns while traveling
Faster access to diagnosis and treatment can mean higher chances of a better and faster recovery. This is why telemedicine is so important. With the ability to contact doctors remotely, you can start treatment sooner and stay healthier.

As a Vanguard patient, you will be seen and diagnosed by a Vanguard provider with a video visit. A Vanguard provider will review your conditions and have access to your medical history. This will help us to make the right diagnosis and prescribe the right recommendations for you. When you call the office to schedule an appointment, they will assess whether an in-person or video option is right for you.
