What is TeleUrology?
Technology today is at the click of a button – whether it is on your smartphone, your tablet, or your home computer. Dr. Nilay M. Gandhi at Potomac Urology is proud to pioneer the use of such technology in making your doctor’s visits as simple as that.
With the use of a HIPAA-secure video platform, he is able to conduct a full office visit in a videochat setting. No longer will you have to wait in the packed DC traffic lines or take a whole day off of work to be evaluated by your urologist. Potomac Urology is dedicated to bringing expertise urologic care right to your doorstep, while you remain in the comfort of your own home.
What to Expect?
The team at Potomac Urology will work with you 1-2 days prior to your teleurology appointment to ensure the proper paperwork is complete and that you are eligible for a televisit. Additionally, they will go over instructions for access to the video platform and instructions for the time of your appointment.
At the time of your televisit, your urologist will go over the pertinent labwork and information, as well as review any imaging results with you. A full treatment plan will be established and all questions will be answered. You may be required to make a subsequent office visit if further labwork, imaging, or physical examination is needed. Additionally after your visit, you will receive an after-visit summary in your email detailing what was discussed during your visit.
Your doctors at Potomac Urology look forward to bringing this new technology to take the stress out of your doctor visits. For more information, please call us at 703-680-2111 to schedule your teleurology appointment today.
