What happens during telehealth appointments?

Your Triad Internal Medicine provider calls during your scheduled appointment time and speaks with you about any health concerns. They inquire about your medical history, medications, and symptoms. Your provider may complete a virtual physical exam to view visible symptoms of a medical issue. 

You may need an in-office visit if you require lab work, X-rays, other diagnostic tests, or hands-on treatment. 

Your Triad Internal Medicine specialist then tailors a treatment plan based on your diagnosis and its severity. They may recommend rest and fluids, home-based or in-office injury treatments, over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, or referrals to other specialists. 

They follow up virtually or in-person to ensure your treatment is effective. Call the Triad Internal Medicine office if you develop new or unusual symptoms or to schedule a follow-up visit.

The practice also offers urgent care, including a walk-in clinic, to provide superior services that exceed your and your family’s primary care needs.
