The Jackson Clinic is now offering telehealth services to both new and existing patients! Telehealth allows patients to stay safe at home while still receiving the care they need via telephone or computer.
Advantages to Telehealth:
- Quick: save a trip to the doctor's office. Your entire visit can be done from the comfort of your home.
- Easy: appointments available via telephone or computer. Simply call the office to make an appointment.
- Healthy: stay safe and healthy by continuing social distancing practices and limiting your contact to the public.
To schedule a telehealth visit, call a Family Medicine or Internal Medicine provider and ask for a telehealth appointment! No matter whom you choose, your Family Medicine and Internal Medicine providers have access to your electronic medical record, making telehealth that much easier.
The foundation of family medicine is the personal relationship between patient and physician. Unlike other specialties that focus on a specific organ or disease, family medicine provides care for a social unit—the family.
In addition to routine care, our family medicine doctors can also help adults and children with chronic medical conditions, such as asthma or heart disease or arthritis. Our doctors can also help with acute problems, including infections.
Internal medicine doctors—also called internists—are trained to handle the wide spectrum of illnesses that affect adults. Similar to family practice physicians, internists are not limited to treating one organ system or disease.
Your primary care doctor might ask our internists to step in with expertise and advice on a complicated medical issue you might be facing. Our doctors can perform testing, offer a treatment plan and work with your doctor to help you feel better fast.
