Chronic conditions are slow developing and incrementally worsening conditions that progress over an extended period of time. These conditions can last months or years and will not heal without outside intervention including medication, surgery, or other clinical treatment. It is also important to regularly monitor these conditions and their symptoms to be able to provide the proper treatment.
Telehealth and virtual care tools like live video enable Dr. Hughes to offer primary patient care for chronic disease management. Providing remote health care reduces the need for hospital visits and in-person appointments.
At DirectMD Virtual Primary Care, you will have access to an experienced health care professional with over a decade of treating and caring for patients with chronic illnesses. Find out more about how Dr. Hughes can be your telemedicine provider.
Virtual care can provide healthcare access to busy patients who are constantly traveling or simply cannot take an entire day or multiple days off to wait in line to see a doctor for 15 minutes and be sent away. Your chronic illness is not going to wait for your physician to be ready before it starts to worsen. Dr. Hughes is available for same-day and next-day appointments. You won’t have to leave the office or wait in a line to be seen. Simply schedule your appointment and connect at your appointment time. Other patients with mobility issues can also take advantage of having a primary care physician in the palm of their hand.
Most people have experienced the impersonal side of regular doctor appointments. Check in, wait, get vitals checked by a nurse, wait some more, see a doctor for less than 10 minutes, and get rushed out the door. It becomes worse when the doctor recommends some additional screenings or tests and now you have to wait even longer for a nurse who may not specialize in providing those tests. In total, you have an uncomfortable experience that lasts hours and you are simply a checkbox for that office while you suffer from your chronic condition.
Let DirectMD Virtual Primary Care offer the modern alternative to comprehensive care. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Hughes and be seen the very next day at a time that fits your schedule. If additional screenings or tests are needed, he can recommend & prescribe the additional screenings to be done by a specialist near your home or work. You can then schedule a time that works best for you and complete the screenings with a specialist that will have you in and out in no time. Dr. Hughes will receive the results and share them with you at your convenience and be in constant communication with you via email, phone, and even text. This method means you have unlocked a wide spectrum of options and won’t have to wait to get help.
As chronic conditions progress, it’s not uncommon for patients to experience new or worsening symptoms. It may even be tempting to ignore these symptoms to avoid long-distance traveling and days off of work. DirectMD Virtual Primary Care provides real-time virtual care to connect you with Dr. Hughes who can recommend a new treatment plan, a different dosage or medication, a nearby specialist, or even at-home remedies.
