Why You Should Consider Telehealth Orthopedic Care
Although our offices at Newport Orthopedic Institute are open for elective
surgeries and other services, we understand that you may be apprehensive
when it comes to making your way into a doctor’s office. Fortunately,
virtual visits are available for pre-existing patients to keep you and
your orthopedist connected.
Minimizes Risk of Exposure
As California continues to go through the various stages of reopening in
the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, the risk of coming in contact with
a sick person or carrier of the virus still exists. Although there are
many safety protocols in place, like social distancing and wearing face
coverings, some people may prefer to keep their distance and stay at home.
Telehealth virtual visits help to provide patients with the orthopedic
care they need while keeping this concern in mind.
Virtual appointments with your orthopedist, sports medicine doctor or pain
management specialist can also help to cut down on unnecessary travel.
When you have questions about your condition or your course of treatment,
it is not always essential to physically be in your doctor’s office.
As long as you have a computer or smartphone with a camera and an internet
connection, you are able to connect with your orthopedic care team.
How Do Telehealth Visits Work?
Newport Orthopedic Institute is currently offering Telehealth orthopedic
care for existing patients. To schedule your virtual appointment, please
call our offices or fill out a
request for an appointment form. When scheduling your telehealth visit, our office will provide the log
in information needed for the day of your scheduled appointment.
After receiving the necessary information, you will be able to log into
your appointment at the time of your session, where you will be able to
see and talk to your doctor in real-time. During your appointment, your
doctor will be able to diagnose your condition and discuss possible treatment
options as well as any additional testing that may be needed. We recommend
you login to your telehealth appointment 5-10 minutes prior to your scheduled
