Telemedicine, also known as telehealth, is the use of telecommunications and information technologies to provide remote clinical health care to patients. With telemedicine, patients can connect with their healthcare providers from the comfort of their own home, eliminating the need for travel and reducing the risk of exposure to infectious diseases like COVID-19.
At Dawn Smith Walsh NP, we offer telemedicine services to patients within the state of Florida. Our telemedicine appointments are conducted via a HIPAA-compliant web-based link that can be accessed from a mobile device or desktop computer with enabled audio and visual capabilities.
Telemedicine appointments can be used for a variety of healthcare needs, including routine check-ups, medication management, mental health counseling, and follow-up appointments. Patients can expect the same level of care and attention from their healthcare provider during a telemedicine appointment as they would during an in-person visit.
Telemedicine is a convenient and safe way for patients to receive the care they need. Contact us to learn more about our telemedicine services and how we can help you with your healthcare needs.

Telehealth: What You Need to Know
Telehealth offers convenience and flexibility by allowing you to have medical consultations from the comfort of your own home.
Telehealth appointments are usually conducted through video conferencing software, and you will need a device with a camera and internet connection to participate.
Many insurance companies now cover telehealth appointments, but it's always a good idea to confirm with your insurance provider beforehand.
Telehealth can be used to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, including mental health issues, chronic illnesses, and minor injuries.
While telehealth is a great option for many patients, it's important to remember that it's not suitable for all medical situations. If you have a medical emergency, you should always call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
