Telehealth Q&A

What is Telehealth?

As times change, Claude Mandel Medical Center has continued to adapt and anticipate the needs of our patients and the community. That’s why we’ve instituted a way to provide the health care you need even if you can’t come to either of the practices offices.

With a telehealth appointment (phone or video), you can PRIVATELY discuss your health concerns and ask Dr. Johnson questions through an app on your iPhone or Android phone, tablet, or computer.

Dr. Johnson can recommend treatments you may use at home, and she can also prescribe any necessary medication during your telehealth appointments.

When you need urgent care but also need the most convenient way to get it, a telehealth appointment with Claude Mandel Medical Center could be a great solution for you. Dr. Johnson schedules virtual appointments around the clock using the online forms on this website.

What types of problems are appropriate for a telehealth appointment?

You can use telehealth visits in place of in-office appointments for many different internal medicine and gastroenterology needs. At Claude Mandel Medical Center, the most common symptoms patients have when scheduling a telemedicine appointment are:

  • Pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal Cramps
  • Rectal Bleeding

But you can schedfule a telehealth visit for other symptoms as well.

As a highly experienced gastroenterologist, Dr. Johnson not only treats gatstrointestinal illnesses, but also chronic and acute bodywide conditions including hypertension, diabetes, asthma, infections, arthritis, and most other health issues affecting adults.
