The emergence of COVID-19 has made life challenging for many Idaho residents with asthma and allergies. For many people, especially those with these preexisting conditions, the prospect of leaving their house to go to an appointment is scary. Primarily due to the increased likelihood of exposure to someone with COVID-19.
Fortunately, Boise allergy and asthma sufferers can now receive the highest level of medical care without leaving their homes. Below are the top five benefits of seeing an allergist via telehealth.
Save Money on Gas and Travel Expenses
When you see a Boise allergist via telehealth, you don't have to drive to your appointment. This enables you to save money on fuel and reduce wear and tear on your car. You may even save money on parking expenses.
Maximize Your Free Time
Traditional in-person appointments with providers can consume a lot of your time. While the appointment itself may only last a short period, there is travel time to consider as well as time spent waiting in the lobby to see your allergist. Depending on your location and schedule, you can save an hour or two of time by requesting a telehealth appointment.
Protect Your Health
Every time you enter a doctor's office or commercial building where people are circulating, you increase your risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other viruses. Telehealth appointments eliminate this risk of exposure because you can complete your appointment from home.
Enjoy a Comfortable Experience
When you participate in a telehealth appointment, you don't have to get dressed up or spend time sitting on a sterile exam table. You can communicate with your Boise allergist from the comfort of your own home, where you can sit on your favorite couch and regulate the temperature in your home. You can even wear your favorite pair of old sweatpants!
Schedule Your Appointment with Ease
Many people are surprised to learn how easy it is to schedule a telehealth appointment with asthma or allergy doctor. As long as you have a cell phone or a computer with a microphone and video, you have what you need to move forward with your appointment. Most providers will send you a text message or email that contains the link you need to connect with your allergy specialist.
What Is the Key to A Positive Telehealth Experience?
As outlined above, there are many benefits to seeing your allergist via telehealth. But not all providers are created equal. The key to ensuring a positive telehealth experience is to choose an experienced allergist with a proven track record of telehealth success.
