During this remote consultation, we will have a conversation about your healthcare needs and explore ways in which we can address them. When you come to the office for your in-person appointment, you will walk directly into the treatment room and receive acupuncture for about 50 min. The acupuncture will be informed by the tele-conversation.
Our Virtual Visit will take place via a video though Zoom or through phone, if you prefer. For our video-visit, I will email you an internet link that you will click, and voilà, you will enter the “treatment room”. The Zoom video-conference is free, all you need to do is download the app on your smartphone and or computer.
~ Create a peaceful and relaxing environment for our Zoom “spa”. Choose the elements that will help you feel comfortable and safe in your own space. Here are some ideas:
~ Make yourself at home in your own house. If you live with others, let them know in advance that you will be unavailable for an hour or so. Make your needs clear, even to your pets(!) if you don’t want them in your space at the time of your visit.
~ If it is night time, lower the electric lights. If we meet during the day, choose a cozy spot, preferably indoors. Have blankets and/or an exercise mat within reach.
~ Block off distractions as much as possible.
~ Set your phone to “do not disturb” mode, or turn your phone off if you are on your computer.
~ Try to use good quality earphones or speakers to minimize static and improve the quality of your experience.
~ Make a list of the main points that you would like to cover during our time together. E mail me with the latest lab exams if pertinent to the condition(s) that you would like to talk about.
~ If you are a new patient, please fill out these forms so I can get a glimpse of your health history and your needs before our virtual visit. This will allow for a better use of our time together.
Looking forward to meeting with you soon!
