Convenient Way For Patients To See Health Care Professionals Without Visiting An Office

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – We have all had those days when we just don’t feel well. Not too-sick-to-function, but uncomfortable while we’re at work or school.

You can simply CLICK HERE and make an appointment to be seen via TeleHealth, a convenient way for patients to consult with healthcare professionals via telephone or video conference without visiting an office.

IT’S EASY: The patient goes online and registers for a TeleHealth consultation and chooses a time at which he or she shoud be called back. A coordinator verifies the patient’s identity, confirms his or her eligibility, takes payment information and updates medication and allergy information.

Then the patient is connected with the provider, who consults through the phone or video conferencing, and may be able to have a look at the patient’s problem then and there.

Advice is given and medication prescribed, if necessary. If a greater problem is suspected or the condition cannot be managed through the TeleHealth conference, appointments are made for the patient to be seen at an urgent care facility.

The cost is $49. It is that simple and it works. This service is easily accessible and a saver of time and money.

Having trained medical professionals who can review medical records and communicate with regular healthcare providers to ensure continuity of care saves the patient valuable travel and waiting time – as well as missed time from work – all while ensuring records stay in one place.

“We do this as an extension of our urgent care services,” said Dr. Michael Shapiro, who directs urgent care for Health First Medical Group.

“It is another way for us to enhance our accessibility to people who are busy or who are unable to get to an urgent care clinic or their doctor’s office. They may be at work, they may not be able to get out; they may be traveling.”

Shapiro, a Dartmouth College-Washington University-University of Massachusetts-trained physician, is a board-certified emergency specialist and former flight physician who has worked at all of Health First’s hospital emergency departments.

“The goal of Health First NOW and TeleHealth is to help make sure patients have access to the care they need, when they need it,” Shapiro said.

“This new service will help us meet this goal.”

Health First NOW also offers appointments for urgent care, emergency care and mammography screening.
