Telehealth (Telemedicine) - Work with us ONLINE.

As an alternative to coming in to the office, Midgie offers a Telehealth option for patients.  Telehealth is a broader term which includes telemedicine. These are video sessions held within a secure patient portal and are Hipaa compliant. Sessions are 30 minutes long and require an online connection, preferably on a laptop or computer versus with a cell phone.

Telehealth Hours of Availability:

Monday & Tuesdays 12:30 - 8pm
Wednesdays 9:30 - 5pm
Fridays 12:30 - 5pm

What exactly is a "Telehealth" Session?  Is it right for me?
Telehealth sessions are just like the acupuncture sessions at our office, but without the needles! We prefer to call them "Telehealth Online Wellness Checkups." During the session we discuss your health concerns and goals. Some of the topics we may discuss include: self-care routines, stress management, acupressure, diet, exercise, QiGong, lifestyle habits, herbs, supplements, and whatever else may be appropriate for you.

After the session, personalized treatment plans will be posted on your patient portal. Plans may include diet recommendations, herbal and supplement protocols, QiGong, exercise recommendations, lifestyle suggestions, stress management techniques and more!

Conditions or symptoms that could benefit greatly from these sessions include:

  • Stress, Anxiety & Panic Attacks
  • Sleep issues
  • Immune System Support
  • Acid Reflux/GI/Digestive issues
  • Acne/Skin issues
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Auto-immune complaints

If you are still unsure if your condition or health goals would be a good fit for these sessions, contact us for a FREE 15 minute phone or video consultations: Request a Consultation. We are happy to speak with you.
