Virtual Care

What is virtual care?

Virtual care, also known as telemedicine, is a method of providing patients and their health care providers with a way of communicating without the need to meet in person. You can consult with Dr. McFarland via your Internet-connected device, using secure channels that allow you to share a video or voice link in complete confidence.

What are the advantages of virtual care?

Virtual care provides a convenient way for you to discuss your health concerns with Dr. McFarland without having to visit MyNP Professionals in person, saving you time and expense and helping to reduce disruption of your busy day.

In addition to the convenience of virtual care, you benefit from improved health, as you can get symptoms checked out easily when they first arise, rather than waiting until they become more affecting because you find it hard to make time for visits to the clinic.

Is virtual care safe and effective?

Virtual care is safe and effective for routine health problems and check-ups where a physical exam isn’t necessary. During a televisit, Dr. McFarland can see how you are and observe any visible problems over the video link, and if she feels you have symptoms that need further examination, she can advise you to make a face to face appointment.

MyNP Professionals uses HIPAA compliant telemedicine software to ensure any patient information is transmitted securely and maintain your confidentiality, and every consultation occurs via a secure communication link.

What kinds of health issues are appropriate for virtual care?

  • Acne
