Is Telemedicine for You?

Some patients may not be capable of driving, may not have a schedule that allows them to come into our office, or may be in another part of the country. We feel distance should not prevent you from getting the care you need and we want to help you.
For patient convenience we offer both in-person visits as well as virtual health consultations also called ‘telemedicine’.  We currently have patients across the country and even outside of the United States.  Contact us with any questions or concerns as we are here to help!  970-532-2755

Frequently asked questions:

How do I communicate with the doctor?

Communication is through a variety of technologies ranging from phone to video conferencing.  This is dependent on the needs of each individual patient.  We do everything to keep your information safe and secure through this process.

What if I need labs or natural medicine products?

We have relations with multiple labs that offer services throughout the United States and even some out of the country.  Many tests can be ran in the comfort of your own home with special ‘kits’ that are provided for you.
Any natural medicine products will be shipped right to your door or address of your choice.  On vacation?  We can even make temporary arrangements to ship to your hotel!  We try and make this service as convenient as possible.

What if I want to fly out for one of my visits?

We are located about 50 minutes north of Denver International Airport, and a short trip off the main highway of I-25.  There are many lodging options near by in the cities of Longmont or Loveland.  

Additional info on our virtual health consultations:

Leveraging additional technologies such as video conferencing (Skype, FaceTime, etc.) allows us not only to share a new level of distance communication but also allows us to visually exam complaints.  We even employee some of the latest in screen sharing technology so we can share laboratory results and draw helpful diagrams and mechanisms to help you understand your condition better.

Many patients choose this method of communication when they are not able to physically be in office whether they are out of state, on vacation, or they may have a scheduling conflict.  This form of communication has allowed us to stay in touch with patients, to avoid lapses in care, even during natural disasters and state of emergencies.

Telemedicine labs and natural medicine:  Many of the labs that we use provide “take-home” versions of the tests that are just as accurate as the in-office version and can be performed in the comfort of your own home.  For diagnostics, such as blood labs, we are networked nationwide with laboratories to allow convenient access in nearly any state.

Our telemedicine appointments are treated the same way as our in-office appointments. Your first appointment will last anywhere from 60-90 minutes (depending on the chronicity of your case), and follow-up appointments may last anywhere from 15-60 minutes. Please prepare all old labs in advance and send them to our office.  A written timeline of your symptoms/complaints and a food diary may also be helpful to us.
