The Many Benefits of Telehealth

As the United States continues to adapt to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, technology makes it possible for you to continue receiving the high-quality care you’ve come to expect. Telehealth enables you to receive care and correspond with us using video and voice calls so that you reduce your risk of COVID-19 exposure.

While telehealth isn’t new, the recent demand has grown, and services have expanded to meet patient needs. At Nova Physician Wellness Center, our board-certified physicians Rohit Suri, MD, and Seema Chaudhary, MD, are dedicated to helping you stay connected to the health services that keep you well. With telehealth technology, you connect with us from the safety and comfort of your home or office.

What is telehealth? 

Telehealth is healthcare technology that allows health care providers and patients to connect to deliver health care. This happens through live video interactions, real-time telephone calls, text chat, and access to private health information using a secure platform. 

You can use telehealth using a computer, smartphone, or other mobile device. This allows our doctors and nurse practitioners to deliver health care services that don’t require an in-person visit. 

Telehealth offers these major benefits which we outline below. 

Telehealth keeps patients connected

Scheduling conflicts and concern over COVID-19 exposure leads to gaps in health care from missed and skipped appointments. Your health and well-being are our top priority and telehealth makes it possible to stay connected.

Losing weight, adopting healthier habits, and making better nutritional choices require support and guidance from health care providers that specialize in weight management, like Dr. Suri and Dr. Chaudhary.

Telehealth gives you continued access to weight-management care, including:

These services are strongly associated with successful weight management. Telehealth also enables our providers to share health information with you, such as test results. They can also prescribe medication or adjust medication dosage and coordinate various other aspects of your care. 

You can set up email and text reminders and sign in to our patient portal so that access to your health information is always at your fingertips.

Telehealth provides convenience and peace of mind

At a time when new, more contagious strains of COVID-19 continue to emerge, utilizing telehealth helps you reduce your risk of contracting the virus. Staying home allows you to avoid coming in contact with potential carriers. Social distancing plays a key role in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Telehealth enhances preventive care and health maintenance

Thanks to the ease and convenience of scheduling and attending virtual visits and accessing health care information, patients who use telehealth are less likely to miss appointments and more likely to stay on top of their health maintenance. This benefits your long-term health and ensures that you continue with important aspects of your care.

Telehealth provides satisfying health care

Patients are successfully using telehealth services and report a very high rate of satisfaction. While some aspects of your care require an in-person visit, the ability to connect with our doctors and nurse practitioners remotely and access your health information online takes some of the hassle out of health care. 

People overwhelmingly find that telehealth provides the same high-quality health care without needing to leave the comfort and safety of home.

Telehealth enhances your already top-quality health care. You can rely on our Nova Physician Wellness Center providers for weight management and wellness care. To get started, give us a call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Suri or Dr. Chaudhary. 

We have three offices in Ashburn, Fairfax, and Vienna, Virginia. Contact the office nearest you today or book your request online.
