Staying healthy means getting medical help when you’re sick, injured and for preventive care. But getting to our office may not always be convenient, especially if you’re not feeling well or have childcare or transportation issues. Read on to learn more.

Telehealth visits provide expert medical care and consultation without coming into the office using a secure connection over your phone, tablet, or computer. These virtual visits exploded in popularity in the early months of the COVID pandemic. But their enormous benefits and convenience have made them a popular staple among patients and providers alike.

The primary care professionals Doctors First PC, serving Gaithersburg, Germantown, Rockville, and Columbia, MD, are proud to offer best-in-class medical care via telehealth visits.

Here’s why we think you’ll like it too.

Saves time

With work, family, and social obligations, your schedule is already stretched thin.

Sometimes, the idea of trying to fit in another appointment — even a much-needed visit to the doctor — feels overwhelming. With our telehealth services, you can schedule a visit when it fits your schedule, minus the travel time and wait in the waiting room.

Also, with telehealth, scheduling can be quicker.  A recent study found that telehealth visits could be scheduled in just a fraction of the time it took to schedule an in-person visit. Yet another time-saver for you.

Avoids travel

Whether driving or taking public transportation, getting to our office can be a hassle.

Telehealth means you don’t have to leave your home or office to visit your doctor. And you can be assured that our services use state-of-the-art technology to protect your privacy at every step of your visit.

Reduces stress

Visiting the doctor can be stressful, even if you’re only having a routine checkup. No one likes stress, and when you are stressed; you’re more likely to forget questions or concerns you “meant” to discuss with your doctor.

Telehealth allows you to relax and focus on discussing concerns with your health provider. That makes it easier to remember your questions and feel confident about your care and health.

Supports social distancing

Whether it’s the COVID-19 pandemic or flu season, avoiding the doctor’s office minimizes your exposure to illness. You don’t need to wear a mask or worry about staying six feet apart from others. This is especially helpful when you already don’t feel well yourself.

By accessing care in your own home, you avoid this, potentially reducing your risk of getting sick. And if you’re the one who is sick, you can keep from spreading your illness to others.

Don’t let a busy schedule or other obstacles prevent you from getting the care you need. To book your virtual appointment with your preferred provider at Doctors First PC, call or book an appointment online with one of our offices today.
