The Convenience of Telemedicine

Your life is always busy, and in the summer, it can be even more so. Between work, personal relationships, hobbies, family events, and kids’ summer schedules, your calendar can really get packed! Taking time to visit a doctor’s office can seem like a challenge.

At Monrovia Internal Medicine & Primary Care of Duarte, California, founder Dr. Ulin Sargeant has advocated the benefits of telemedicine since her early days as a pioneer in this growing field. During the lockdowns and caution taken during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, more Americans started realizing how much medical care and support telemedicine can provide.

Why give up the convenience of telemedicine in 2021? Here are some of the major benefits of telemedicine treatment with Dr. Sargeant.

An easy way to communicate with a health professional

It’s important to check in with your primary care doctor regularly so they can identify any potential problems early. And, you never know when a health situation could arise. From illnesses to injuries to allergy attacks, problems that need medical attention can strike at any time.

For non-emergency situations, you can often get the medical evaluation and support you need through a telemedicine session. The easy-to-use professional-grade telemedicine interface we use at Monrovia Internal Medicine & Primary Care creates a real-time link between you and Dr. Sargeant, so you can discuss symptoms, ask questions, and share images or video.

A telemedicine appointment can be an effective way to address medical needs including:

If needed, Dr. Sargeant can schedule a follow-up office appointment, although you may be able to get all the help you need through telemedicine alone.

Stay connected, secure, and private

Telemedicine conveniently lets you connect with Dr. Sargeant through your own device, so you can chat from your bedroom, office, or anywhere you are with your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Our telehealth services include phone and video appointments.

Today’s technology allows Dr. Sargeant to easily and rapidly send your new or updated prescriptions directly to your pharmacy of choice, so you can pick up your medication whenever it’s convenient for you.

Our systems maintain a high standard of patient privacy, and we ensure that only authorized users have access to your records, communications, and personal medical and health care information.
