What is a telemedicine appointment like?

You may not realize that it’s not always necessary to meet with your fertility doctor in person. However, because telemedicine is a relatively new option, you may be asking, “What is a telemedicine appointment like?” and “How does telemedicine work?”

How does telemedicine work?

To make a telemedicine appointment, simply call our office and speak to our scheduling team.

What is a telemedicine appointment like? It’s like a typical in-office visit, from the comfort of your own home. You’ll be able to see and hear your provider, just as you would with an in-person visit. And of course, your partner or other family members can attend your appointment with you. 

You can dial into your appointment from any internet-enabled device with a camera, such as a laptop, personal computer, mobile phone or tablet. As with an in-person visit, all information you discuss during a remote care visit is confidential and stays between you and your care team.

Tips for telemedicine success

Please note the following tips for making the most of Indiana telemedicine fertility care.

  • Come prepared to answer questions. Your care team will want to learn about your concerns, medical history and all other information relevant to your fertility needs.
  • Bring questions of your own. Just as with a regular visit, this is dedicated time, one-on-one with your doctor, to get all the information and answers you are looking for.
  • Set up your device in a room that is free from distractions, such as background noise or potential interruptions.
  • Put your device in a stable spot, with good lighting, where your hands will be free to take notes. 
  • We recommend contacting your insurance provider before your appointment to make sure you understand your benefits and coverage for remote visits.

Our team is happy to help you get answers to questions like, “How does telemedicine work?” so that you understand what to expect before you call in.
