Telehealth


Thoughtful Health recognises the public health challenges of managing COVID19 and we aim to provide continuity of care for our patients during this difficult time. 

 

We are still open for in-person appointments.  If you have current respiratory symptoms please contact our clinic to discuss options for rescheduling appointments or being seen by telehealth.  Please also limit the number of people you bring to appointments.  Extra family members in the waiting room increases social contact and risk of contagion.  Once you have checked in with reception you may wish to consider waiting outside.  

 

If you live outside a capital city you may also be eligible for telehealth appointments.  This means you can have an appointment via video conference instead of in person, saving you the time and expense of traveling to the city.  To see if you live in an eligible area, refer to the Medicare website: Telehealth eligible areas.

 

Our clinicians primarily use Skype or Zoom for appointments.  If you qualify for a telehealth appointment we will contact you with instructions on accessing these platforms.
