The world has changed. I want you to know that you’re not alone in it.
In March I shifted my medical practice to 100-percent telemedicine visits. My patients and I are loving it.
These work just like regular appointments, except we meet over a secure, HIPAA-compliant video portal. All you need is a private space, decent light, a good internet connection, and your computer or device. It takes just one click to connect, with no downloads required.
This is the right way to offer non-emergency medicine in this crazy time. It lets more people be seen, and keeps everyone safe.
This avenue for care is opening up all over the country in many ways. Insurance companies seem to be stepping up. State and federal organizations are easing up on restrictions that have limited this in the past.
These medical visits are available to anyone in Oregon.Click here to schedule your appointment.
If you are not in Oregon and want to see me, please get in touch. What I’m able to do depends on your state.
Things are changing fast. One thing that’s not changing: I am here for you.
When I discuss this with my chronic disease and mental-health patients in clinic, I explain that resilience it’s about reacting without flaring, feeling without falling apart. Resilience means being able to rebound appropriately in the face of a stressor.
This is a time full of stressors. And even if the current pandemic’s first wave may be flattening, we’ve got more waves ahead.
P.S. Want to get a head start? When you register for the series you’ll automatically get my Immune Resilience Action Guide. Print it out, give it a read, post it someplace visible like your refrigerator. It’s our roadmap for the coming weeks.
P.P.S. These talks are intended as general health education and are not a substitute for medical care. Please consult your doctor before making any changes to your health regimen. If you’re in Oregon and would like to customized recommendations, please schedule a telemedicine appointment here. If you’re in another state, please get in touch and we’ll see what we can arrange.
A few years ago, a patient came in with some unexplained symptoms. She’d been to the hospital twice, and even had a small surgery that didn’t help the problem. Tough as that was, she’d also gotten some bad news on a related genetic test. You can imagine she was pretty scared.
