Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a way of consulting with your primary care provider without needing to have an in-person visit. You can receive expert care via secure technologies, avoiding the expense and inconvenience of making your way to your doctor's office.

As well as being more convenient, using telemedicine means you don't need to go to the effort of leaving home when you're feeling sick. That's better for you and also reduces your risk of getting or passing on any infection you might have.

Telemedicine is particularly valuable when you're at risk of contracting COVID-19 and trying to avoid social situations.


For what conditions can telemedicine be used?

The Premier NW Houston Medical Group team uses telemedicine to see patients with a wide variety of disorders, including:

  • Colds and flu
  • Skin conditions and eczema
  • Acid reflux (heartburn) and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Allergies
  • Bronchitis and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Constipation
  • Joint pain
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Depression and anxiety

Telemedicine consultations are suitable for addressing most conditions and symptoms you might have at some stage. An initial discussion might require a visit to the onsite lab at Premier NW Houston Medical Group for tests, but this isn't always necessary.

If you visit your primary care provider for your initial appointment, you can often schedule follow-up visits via telemedicine, too.


How does telemedicine work?

To access telemedicine services, you need a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer. As well as arranging telemedicine consultations, downloading the Healow™ app enables you to:

  • Send and receive messages from your doctor and other staff
