Offering Telemedicine at SF Advanced Health

After over a month of stay-at-home orders, efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 are working. The quicker we act today, the sooner this will all come to an end. These efforts have never been so valuable as they are now. Hospitals from coast to coast are anticipating the surge in the next 3-5 days followed by a long, gradual decline in the number of cases. There will be a continued strain on healthcare resources for some time.

While we will have to socially distance in order to bend the pandemic’s curve down, please know that the team at SF Advanced Health is always here for you!  Since we started in 2013, we have provided Telemedicine services along with in-office consultations to provide the best possible care. We used to call it virtual consultations, online appointments, and other terms until the industry coalesced around the term Telemedicine. 

Ultimately, the highlight of our days is serving you, talking to you, and helping you through your treatments and adjustments. We will always make it possible to meet you wherever you are in your healthcare journey and however you want to meet. 

Telemedicine provides you with two-way video and/or audio access with your practitioner.  Please note that these sessions are provided directly by each individual practitioner. For scheduling a new appointment with me, Dr. Bhandari, click here. For all other practitioners at SF Advanced Health, please contact them directly through to book appointments and discuss virtual appointment set-up. The practitioner will discuss how best to provide your treatment based on your specific needs. 

While this is a new health environment for all of us, our technological capabilities remains current. The good news is that in order to ensure access to care, many requirements have been waived, health insurance reimbursements have expanded, and telehealth has become the primary mode of healthcare delivery now. Our Telemedicine platform at SF Advanced Health is a 100% HIPAA-compliant way to deliver premium virtual care. Telemedicine provides many advantages, including increased flexibility, greater coordinated care, and less non-productive time spent on your end. 

Our primary goal is to make sure you continue to receive the quality care you need from the safety and convenience of your own homes. This is the best time to take back control of your health. We are committed to your safety, health and well-being.  

Many blessings to you and your loved ones,
