Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is medical care using the newest technology to give you expert medical care in your own home. During Botany Wellness telemedicine visits, you’ll meet experienced board-certified family medicine specialist Jennifer Ukwu, MD, through private online video conferencing on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Telemedicine visits feature live video chat with Dr. Ukwu, which works much like office visits do. You’ll discuss your reason for the visit, review symptoms, ask questions, and get advice and a personalized treatment plan. 

Dr. Ukwu offers telemedicine as part of her promise of whole-person holistic health care for each patient.  

Over the last several years, telemedicine has grown increasingly popular because it provides an easy no-fuss way to stay on top of your medical needs and meet your health and wellness goals without having to leave your home. 

When can I use telemedicine for my medical care?

Telemedicine is meant for non-emergency and routine types of medical care, with some examples including:

  • Flu
  • Colds
  • Rashes
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Bronchitis
  • Type 2 diabetes management
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Acid reflux
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Asthma
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Minor injuries
  • Nutrition guidance
  • Weight loss therapy

Telemedicine is also an ideal way to follow up on your appointments in the Botany Wellness office. And, if you have questions about your current health management plan or need extra support, telemedicine allows you to get the help you need immediately.

Telemedicine can’t 100% replace in-office care because some medical situations require in-person physical exams, lab testing, and hands-on treatments. But, for most patients, telemedicine is an excellent supplement to their regular visits to Botany Wellness.
