Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a general term that describes various ways to communicate with a health care provider without going to their office or meeting in person. Methods of communication may include phone calls, text messages, emails, or live video chats.

At Aveo Wellness, Dr. Deam uses telemedicine to diagnose and treat patients virtually. That means you receive expert care without traveling to the office and sitting in a waiting room, saving you time and money.

Telemedicine also allows Dr. Deam to remotely monitor certain vital signs, such as your blood pressure, using a mobile medical device. He uses Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant software that keeps your information confidential.

What types of mental health services can I receive with telemedicine?

Dr. Deam offers a variety of mental health services via telemedicine, including talk therapy and medication management. He also uses telemedicine to work with life coaching clients and offers relationship counseling to individuals, couples, and families.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Not only is telemedicine convenient, but it’s also cost-effective and makes important medical services, like mental health care, more widely available. Especially considering transportation to and from the office may be a barrier that prevents some people from getting the care they need.

Although Aveo Wellness is based in San Diego, California, Dr. Deam can treat you from anywhere. This allows people who live in rural areas or have mobility issues to access high-quality mental health care. It also means you can keep your routine appointment, even if you need to travel.

Scheduling is more convenient because you don’t have to worry about missing work or finding a caregiver for your child or geriatric loved one. 

All of these factors make it easier and safer for you to get to your appointment.

How does telemedicine work?

Depending on your specific needs, a telemedicine appointment with Dr. Deam may involve a video chat or phone call. You may also communicate with him via text or email and use an online patient portal to schedule appointments or upload information, such as test results.

If you have any questions about using telemedicine, Dr. Deam is happy to answer them.
