Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is as safe and effective as in-person medical care. It involves meeting with Dr. Glover over the phone or via video conferencing from a remote site so you don’t have to travel to LifeBalance Integrative Health & Wellness when you’re tight on time, out of town, or live outside the Palmdale area.

Dr. Glover and her staff ensure the information you discuss via telemedicine remains confidential, as they abide by strict privacy standards. She offers virtually the same treatment options through telemedicine as she does in-office.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

The caring staff at LifeBalance Integrative Health & Wellness offer telemedicine services for added patient convenience. Examples of benefits include:

  • No travel time required
  • Medical care from a convenient location of your choice
  • Privacy
  • No exposure to contagious sick patients
  • Less worry about child-care during appointments
  • Less time away from work
  • Access to care when you’re out of town

Telemedicine appointments can save you time and money, and help you to save those paid vacation and sick days through work.

What should I expect during a telemedicine appointment?

Dr. Glover provides the same standard of care during telemedicine appointments as she does at in-office visits. She reviews your medical history and visually examines you if necessary through a phone, tablet, or computer screen. 

After discussing concerns and answering questions you may have, she prescribes an appropriate, holistic treatment unique to your needs. Dr. Glover uses your input when creating a tailored treatment plan, and lets you know when to schedule your next face-to-face or telemedicine appointment.

Is telemedicine right for me?

Your initial visit with Dr. Glover is a face-to-face, in-office visit. If you require lab tests, imaging tests, or a physical examination, you’ll also schedule a visit to the office. But once you’re an established patient, you can opt for the following telemedicine appointments:

  • Follow-up visits for chronic disease management
  • Hospital follow-up appointments
  • Sick visits (in some cases)
  • Preventive care support, such as smoking cessation
  • Mental health support and treatment

Don’t let a busy lifestyle prevent you from attending doctor visits that are necessary for optimal health and wellness. Schedule a telemedicine appointment with LifeBalance Integrative Health & Wellness today or book one online.
