Telehealth Doctor in North Shore of Boston, MA
Telehealth is revolutionizing the patient-physician relationship. Getting medical attention without traveling to a clinic or urgent care facility has proven safe and effective for many medical problems. Most insurance plans now pay for telehealth services.
Charter Health’s physicians and nurse practitioners are internal medicine experts. We have built a telehealth service to improve patient access for new problems and to help us monitor chronic conditions. Infections, sore throats, rashes, fever, cough, anxiety, and other acute issues can be effectively addressed through a virtual visit with our telehealth doctors in North Shore of Boston, MA. For chronic conditions, telehealth and remote monitoring help us oversee a patient’s response to treatment and adjust the plan of care accordingly.
Our telehealth service complements our traditional office-based practice, which is on the campus of MGB Salem Hospital. To schedule an appointment for either telehealth or an in-person evaluation, please call us at 978-354-4611.
