What is telemedicine?
Virtual appointments are just like in-person appointments except you meet with your provider in a video conference through the Healow app. You can book an appointment through the Maiden Lane Medical patient portal and talk to your doctor from the convenience of your own home, private office, car, or anywhere you have privacy and access to a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a webcam.
Our Telemedicine Services
Fitzgeraldo Sánchez, MD, is a board-certified and award-winning dermatologist who is pioneering the telemedicine service. He offers personalized care to improve the appearance of your skin as well as diagnosing and treating skin cancer.
Rather than coming in for an appointment, Dr. Sanchez can follow up on treatment and offer new treatment based on appearance. If a biopsy or procedure is required, Dr. Sanchez will ask you to come to the office.
Carlyn Rosenblum, MS, RD, CDN, CLC provides science-backed nutritional advice to help you improve your health and well-being. Whether you want to lose weight or reduce your risk of chronic health conditions such as diabetes or hypertension, Carlyn can help you make small, incremental changes to your diet for sustainable health enhancement.
Instead of coming in for an appointment, Carlyn Rosenblum can meet you online. At the beginning of the visit, you enter your weight on the screen and the she can do your entire visit online.
Explore the benefits of telemedicine
No transportation time or costs
Telemedicine saves you time and money while reducing frustration from unreliable public transportation or bumper to bumper traffic — and that’s before you have to find and pay for parking. You don’t need to worry about being late to your appointment or back to work.
No need to take time away from daily responsibilities
Speaking of work, virtual visits largely remove the need to take time off. You can have your appointment anywhere that offers sufficient privacy such as your office during your break or your bedroom while you’re little one is down for a nap. You can comply with your doctor’s follow-up instructions and maintain your health without missing a day of work or wasting your precious paid time off.
Access to specialists
When you need a specialist, the best provider isn’t always conveniently located. Telemedicine makes it possible for you to access the expertise of specialists who aren’t nearby. When it comes to serious health issues, you want to consult with the best, not the closest.
Protect and improve your health
While everyone does their best to reduce the spread of illness, it is always possible to pick up a virus, especially in crowded waiting rooms. By staying home, you get the care you need while avoiding the risk of exposure and the chance that you’ll pass your illness on to someone else.
Additionally, when you can see your doctor as often as you need to, without the challenges of getting into the office, you can practice better management of your medication, lifestyle, and any chronic conditions you might have, which improves your overall health and wellness.
Given these benefits, telemedicine is becoming increasingly popular and is poised to have a positive impact on the entire health care system. Maiden Lane Medical wants you to have access to the expert care you need when you need it. Telemedicine is just one of the ways the practice is expanding and improving its services to enhance your experience. Schedule your virtual telemedicine appointment today.
Is there an extra cost for this service?
No. We will only charge your regular copay and any deductibles.
How do I schedule a televisit?
The best way to do it is online:
Do I need special equipment?
Just a smartphone, tablet, or computer equipped with a webcam.
What if I have to come in for a visit? Do I have to pay an additional copay?
This is considered a new visit and not a continuation of the televisit. Thus, a new copay is required
