Telemedicine

Telemedicine at Bream Medical

At Bream Medical, we have wholly embraced telemedicine as an effective and convenient way to treat patients.  Telemedicine is available to anyone who lives in North Carolina and can address many health needs.

While telemedicine is often an acceptable means of treating patients, it does have limitations, advantages, and disadvantages.  

Telemedicine - Pros vs. Cons

Advantages

  • Telemedicine visits are generally cheaper than in-person visits
  • Telemedicine minimizes exposure to communicable illness
  • Telemedicine is convenient. It can be done from your couch, from your workplace, on vacation, or basically anywhere there is a good Wi-Fi connection
  • Telemedicine facilitates increased communication between patients and providers
  • Telemedicine increases access to subspeciality clinics and access to care in rural areas

Disadvantages

  • Telemedicine cannot be performed for certain illnesses
  • Telemedicine cannot replace health screenings
  • Telemedicine does require a Wi-Fi connection
  • Telemedicine can be prone to technical glitches
  • Telemedicine seems to be more difficult for the technologically challenged

Telemedicine is ideal for management of sinus infections, urinary tract infections, upper respiratory infections, mental health concerns, reviewing radiology or test results, ADHD, rashes, medication refills, acute COVID, long COVID, or many other acute needs.
