Doctors and other healthcare providers usually care for patients in person at medical offices, clinics, or hospitals. While this works for some, other patients, especially those who live in remote areas or have limited mobility, want a more accessible and convenient form of consultation.
Thanks to technological advancements and the rise of computers, smartphones, and other digital devices, virtual professional medical practitioners, also known as telehealth doctors, can now diagnose, treat, and oversee a patient’s virtual care with reliable and cost-saving telehealth services.
Telehealth Services Provided at a Location Convenient to You
fPlayford Medical Centre has a team of telehealth or telephone doctors who deliver quality, comprehensive and timely patient care. We exist to help you overcome the barriers of distance and isolation if you live in a rural or distant area. Through technology, we offer a range of specialist services tailored to your healthcare needs, even at a distance from doctors and allied health professionals such as dermatologists, GP doctors, dietitians, podiatrists, physiotherapists, and nurses.
From conducting medical visits over the computer to monitoring patients’ vital signs remotely, our doctors can provide a range of outcomes. These include online medical certificates, referrals to specialists or pathology, and prescriptions if you are unwell.
