5 Benefits of Telehealth

5 Benefits of Telehealth

Girls and women of all ages experience unique health issues like issues with menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. Plus, women are more likely than men to get urinary tract infections, yeast infections, and other problematic issues.   

Sometimes it’s not always easy to get into the office for an appointment. So what happens if you have a pressing gynecological question but can’t get to your provider? Enter telehealth

At Alpenglow Gynecology in Littleton, Colorado, women’s health specialist, Rickie Guida, WHNP-BC offers telehealth medicine to new and existing patients. This is a convenient, HIPAA-compliant way to meet without needing to leave your home.   

Through telehealth services at Alpenglow Gynecology, you receive the high-quality care you deserve without needing to be in the same physical location as your provider. The telehealth services at Alpenglow Gynecology are a way for you to: 

Not all conditions can be treated or diagnosed using telehealth, but you can consult with Rickie and determine whether you need to come to an in-person appointment. Keep reading to learn about five amazing benefits of our telehealth services. 

1. Saves time

At Alpenglow Gynecology, we know life is busier than ever. Fitting in another appointment can overwhelm your schedule. With our telehealth services, you can schedule a visit with Rickie when it fits your schedule. Plus, you won’t have to arrive early and spend time waiting in the waiting room — you get on the call at your scheduled time.

2. Avoids traveling

Getting from one place to another can be a real pain, whether you’re taking public transportation or driving yourself. Our office is conveniently located off Colorado 121, but we know that no matter what, traveling can be a headache. 

Telehealth avoids the need to commute to your appointment by allowing you to visit your provider from the location of your choice, whether that’s at home, in the office, in your car, or from somewhere else. 

We use state-of-the-art technology to protect your privacy before, during, and after your visit. For more information about how we protect your information, call our friendly front desk. 

3. Less stress

Going to a healthcare appointment can be stressful, even if it’s a simple, routine exam or checkup. And when you feel stressed, you’re more likely to forget questions you wanted to ask or concerns you meant to discuss. 

Having your telehealth visit in a comfortable place means you can stay relaxed and focused on the appointment — especially if you’re meeting with Rickie about something concerning. That makes it easier to ensure you get your questions asked and answered, improving your overall care and health.

4. Easier access to care

Some gynecological issues or concerns aren’t serious and may simply require some guidance, TLC, or a simple prescription to address. But other OB/GYN problems may not be so simple, like abnormal bleeding.  

Our telehealth services make it easy to access the guidance and you need for optimal health. Our team can take insurance information, provide access to records, and take secure online payment with our convenient telehealth software.  

5. Protect your immune system

Especially during peak respiratory virus season, avoiding going to your provider’s office can be a good thing. You don’t need to worry about potential exposure to germs and catching a cold or the flu. And if you’re feeling a bit under the weather, you won’t have to reschedule your appointment with Rickie.
