How does telemedicine work?

Prior to your appointment, you need a video chat app on your phone, computer, or tablet. The Desert Wells Family Medicine team tells you where to find the appropriate app, and how to easily download it.

When it’s time for your visit, you connect to the app, signing in using a personal username and password that you select. You’re quickly connected to a private virtual conference room where you can see your medical provider and they can see you. 

You’ll discuss your concerns and needs with your medical provider, and they’ll ask you some questions to verify information and get a good idea of what you’re dealing with. 

Depending on what your issues are, your medical provider may ask you to move around some. For example, if you’re concerned about a wound on your leg, your medical care provider may request a closer look at it.

During your appointment, your Desert Wells Family Medicine medical provider reviews your history and considers your current circumstances to determine the right course of immediate care. 

If you need medication, your care provider can call the prescription in for your convenience. Some local Queen Creek pharmacies offer home delivery, and others offer drive-through medication pickup. 

Desert Wells Family Medicine makes it easy to get personalized treatment from professional medical providers, right in the privacy of your own home. Call the office or use the online appointment scheduler to book your visit now.
