Sore throat? Sleep issues? Aches and pains?
Scheduling a Telehealth appointment is an excellent way to see your provider about any health issue, from the comfort of your own home. We are also able to conduct limited physical rehab appointments via Telehealth for evaluating functional movements and going over home exercise programs with Dr. Dean Wright (DC).
We understand that everyone has a busy life, and may not be able to set aside time to drive over to our office and see a provider in person, thankfully Telehealth makes it easier than ever to connect with your provider.

Tips for Telehealth appointment success
Write down your symptoms
If you are experiencing symptoms of sickness, it is important to provide as much information as possible so that your provider can make the best recommendations for treatment. It is much easier to recall all of your symptoms if you make a list including each symptom, and how long each one has been persisting.
For example, if you are experiencing a fever, be ready to tell your doctor how long you have had a fever, your current average temperature, and if you have been taking any medication at home to combat the symptoms.
If your visit concerns any physical symptoms such as rash, sores, or raised bumps – please take a picture before hand, as our platform allows you to upload images for your doctor to look over.
Take notes of talking points, and provider recommendations
It is easy to forget items that you want to talk with your provider about, even for a normal non Telehealth appointment. We recommend that before your Telehealth appointment, that you write down any symptoms or concerns that you wish to address with your provider.
It is also helpful to have a writing utensil handy incase you would like to make notes of your doctors responses and recommendations so that you implement them properly.
Find a quiet & relaxing spot
We value your time just as much as you value ours! We do not want your appointment interrupted by noisy room mates, pets or children, for this reason we recommend that you find a quiet and relaxing spot where you will not be interrupted during your Telehealth appointment.
Also, please turn off background noise such as TV or music, so that you can be focused on providing quality information to your doctor, and absorbing all of the information that we have to offer.
Prepare your device in advance
All Telehealth appointments require internet enabled technology such as a computer, laptop, phone, or tablet in order to connect to your provider.
Make sure that you are bale to properly access required software before your scheduled Telehealth appointment time, so it does not take away from valuable time consulting with your provider. It is also important to have enough battery life and stable enough internet connection so that you can communicate with your provider adequately.
The instructions for how to download software are included in the confirmation email that you receive after scheduling your Telehealth appointment.
