Patients can now connect to their doctor on-the-go or from the comfort of their home through a new telehealth program offered at a select group of primary care offices at Lakeland Health.
Patients with low-intensity complaints, such
as back pain, pink eye, cough, heartburn, and
similar ailments will be able to initiate an e-visit
with their doctor using their Lakeland MyChart
account. After completing a questionnaire
regarding their symptoms, within one business
day a doctor will assess the patient’s condition,
provide treatment options, and if needed, send a prescription to the pharmacy of their choice. Doctors using e-visits will charge a $35 out-of-pocket fee per visit.
