  • It’s Been 1 Year of Allied After-Hours Telemedicine!

    By: Naomi Zilkha, MD (Telemedicine, Allied Physicians Group)

    Hi Allied! It’s #TelemedicineTuesday!

    Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of the day I started as Allied’s after-hours Virtualist, so I thought it might be fun to put a list together of what telemedicine visits I have had in the past year. Of course, this list doesn’t have every single visit, but it was fun to make, and impressive/nostalgic for me to look back at the year.

    Here we go:

    ADHD follow up, acne, allergies

    Breastfeeding questions, bites/sting (mosquito, bed-bug, bee, wasp, human, dog)

    Cough, conjunctivitis, croup

    Diaper rash

    Ear pain, eczema

    Frost-bite

    Gastroenteritis (stomach flu)

    Head injury

    Impetigo

    Jaw pain

    Knee pain

    Medication dosage questions, motion sickness, mouth sores

    Nosebleed

    Otitis Externa (swimmer’s ear), Otitis media (ear infection-with Tyto device)

    Pinworm

    Questions, questions and more questions—ranging from newborns to kids in college

    Ringworm, many other rashes

    Sunburn

    Throat pain

    Urinary symptoms

    Vomiting

    Warts

    X-ray necessary?

    Yes, he can go to day-care tomorrow

    Zika virus and other travel questions

    I’m really proud of all that I’ve accomplished with Allied Telemedicine in the past year. Of all my visits, I’ve only had to send one patient to the Emergency Room, and very few needed to go to Urgent care. Almost all were able to be completely handled by the Telemedicine visit, or by a visit the next day to the patient’s Allied office.

    Looking forward to what the next year will bring!

    And, remember, when it comes to after-hours urgent care, #ThinkTelemedicine first!
