LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients who imagine getting high-tech medical attention without even changing out of their pajamas or leaving the house for an appointment may be pleasantly surprised to learn about telemedicine. As a mobile doctor in Los Angeles who provides preventative, routine and emergency healthcare, Dr. Michael Farzam of House Call Doctor Los Angeles is pleased to offer telemedicine services, also called telehealth. Specializing as a 24 hour doctor in Southern California, board-certified internist Dr. Farzam is often able to help his regular patients even when they're on vacation or a business trip. Dr. Farzam provides telemedicine for Los Angeles patients who are away on travel, so they don't have to see an unfamiliar doctor in a strange city, and can get on with their business right after hanging up the phone or ending their video chat.
Telemedicine is not brand new; in fact, it began about 40 years ago. However, with today's modern technology, the scope of what telemedicine can do is truly incredible. Anyone with a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff or other equipment in addition to their laptop is a potentially eligible candidate for telemedicine with Dr. Farzam. With a simple video chat, Dr. Farzam is able to give advice for patients who don't want any further disruption from their day once they end the video chat. Some of the patients who can benefit most from House Call Doctor Los Angeles' telehealth services are those who want to monitor a chronic health condition, such as type 2 diabetes, lupus, arthritis, high blood pressure, and many other illnesses.
Telemedicine is simply the best way to bring the advice and attention of a medical expert to the patient who has various questions. Whether they have a skin problem and need the advice of an expert who can review photos of a rash, lesion, bruise or other malady, Dr. Farzam is uniquely equipped to render an opinion and give advice for which specialist to seek out to get the patient feeling well again.
Of course, not every condition is suited for a video chat, such as urgent care for traumatic accidents or an acute onset of a health condition requiring medical tests, and in these cases, Dr. Farzam will make the appropriate recommendations so the patient gets the medical attention they need to stay healthy. As long as a patient is in Los Angeles, he'll make the trip to see them, most often in less than an hour.
As a supplementary service, telemedicine can be a great help to homebound patients alongside concierge nursing, or for medical education. Some patients may question why they are experiencing certain symptoms, and a live, interactive video chat with Dr. Farzam may help them get back to feeling their best again.
House Call Doctor Los Angeles provides patients with the VIP care they want, and a more direct relationship with their doctor without the hassle of having to go to a packed healthcare clinic.
