Athens Area Urology is excited to announce that we are now offering telemedicine to our patients. As COVID-19 (also known as Coronavirus) sweeps across the nation, telemedicine is stepping up and providing help to healthcare providers to better assist the needs of our patients who have contracted the virus and/or those who are considered high-risk. Telemedicine helps to bridge the gap between patients and physicians, encouraging everyone, especially symptomatic patients, to stay at home and communicate with our physicians through virtual channels. This will help to reduce the spread of the virus.
Telemedicine is a live interactive appointment via videoconference that closely simulates in-person meetings between our physicians and patients. Our number one priority at AAU is to make this process as simple as possible. We will provide you with step-by-step directions to simplify the process. Rest assured that telemedicine still provides the basic needs of privacy and professionalism that patients would receive if visiting the office in-person.
Telemedicine is an excellent option for routine check-ups, consultations, etc. however, keep in mind it is only available for specific services. If you have an upcoming appointment at AAU, visit our website or contact us at 706-612-9401 to see if you are a candidate for telemedicine. We look forward to hearing from you!
