What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of phone or video to provide healthcare from a distance. With today’s technology, labs can be ordered from one location and taken from another. Dr. Gil uses your lab results combined with phone, email, and/or video conferencing in this way. He can then recommend natural, safe, non-invasive, and effective treatments for mental health concerns. You don’t have to take time off of work, spend hours in waiting rooms, or battle traffic for an appointment.
Telehealth services for mental health offer many advantages and benefits. You don’t have to wait as long for an appointment for one thing. And travel time is reduced saving you time and money. Plus if you live in a location with few or no providers you get access to high quality healthcare. There are several studies showing telemedicines greater efficacy in healthcare delivery for many specialties. Mental health medicine is one of these areas. The American Telemedicine Association reports that telemedicine provides better patient monitoring, outcomes and patient satisfaction. Other benefits of telemedicine include faster turnaround time for test results, better communication with patients, and greater convenience for the patient. Greater access to healthcare providers via email is also a big benefit for many patients.
Telehealth services begin with an initial conversation by phone or email. We order lab tests that are taken through one of our partner labs. We can run these tests regardless of what state you live. Once the results are in, Dr. Gil reviews them and analyzes your brain chemistry using the Walsh Protocol. The Walsh Protocol developed by William Walsh looks at mental health issues arising out of nutrient deficiencies. Dr. Gil will prescribe supplements based on the lab results, your history, and symptoms. You order the supplements and start taking them. Dr. Gil will follow-up with you in several weeks to see how you are doing and make any adjustments needed.
In most cases, insurance does not cover the cost of the visit but you can consult with your particular company. We may be able to assist you in getting lab costs covered though.
Demand in telemedicine is growing as patients discover the many advantages of it. And natural treatments for depression and other mental health concerns are safe and effective. Why not combine the two with Ask Dr. Gil? Schedule today for a free pre-consultation.
