Telehealth is the new in-person doctor visit.  And if you haven’t experienced telehealth then you are truly in for a wonderful surprise!

Did you know that 80% of all visits can be accomplished through a telehealth video visit from your phone if you prefer not to visits an office during COVID? How amazing is that?

Especially now as we are currently living through a pandemic.  And especially for women who often are caring for young children and unable or not wanting to bring them into a doctor’s office.

2020 should NOT keep any woman from continuing regular well-woman exams.

Caduceus for Women is offering telehealth visits as well as in-person doctor’s visits. A woman only needs to come in-office for a PAP at age 21 then ACOG guidelines: Age 21-29: Pap every 3 years, HPV not recommended. Age 30-65: Pap & HPV every five years.

Caduceus offers so many services for women.  We recently interviewed Dr. Nathaniel DeNicola who is the newest OBGYN to join Caduceus Medical Group.  And he gives some insight on what to expect at Caduceus as well as what Caduceus offers in terms of screenings and services.

I recently was able to schedule a telehealth visit for my son and it was absolutely amazing.  First, I didn’t have to wait in a waiting room – we simply set up the computer and waited for the doctor to let us enter the call.

Second, because I was able to upload photos ahead of time the doctor was already prepped on our needs so the visit was super quick.

Third, our prescription was sent directly to the pharmacy after our visit.

I do realize that there are times when an in-person visit is required, but for everything else, telehealth is one of the best things I’ve ever discovered!

I was so happy that we didn’t have to get in PPE and make our way to the doctor’s office.  I am more than willing to do so but with all that is going on if there are ways to make our lives easier I am 100% for them!

I am so thankful that Caduceus has had telehealth visits for so long and am so glad that they continue to offer these visits as well as their in-person visits on a need basis.

Dr. Nathaniel DeNicola is currently accepting patients.
