Telehealth: Serving Patients in These Troubling Times

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has been causing numerous health care facilities to shut down, we as medical professionals are diligently trying to serve our patients in the best ways possible without risking the spread of this disease. Because of this, telehealth services are the best possible option for us at this time. By providing care for our patients virtually, as opposed to in person, we are able to keep both our patients and PT providers safe. For more information on our telehealth services and how they may benefit you, feel free to call us at 907-456-5990, request a telehealth appointment or go to our website at www.willowpt.com to request your virtual appointment! What is telehealth? You may be wondering what exactly telehealth is. Essentially, it is a way for us to make sure

that our patients are still receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location. Telehealth services can be accessed via your smartphone or computer, and you will be able to perform your PT treatments from the comfort of your own home during this quarantine. You will also be able to track your progress and see how you are improving throughout your treatments – without coming directly to our clinic. At Willow Physical Therapy, our telehealth services offer live consultation where you can meet and chat with your physical therapist about your treatment plan. Additionally, through our home exercise programs, you can be prescribed the exercises and stretches that you are expected to complete each day and log your advancement through your treatment plan.

“John set up a telemedicine appointment through Zoom. It was easy to download the program and easy to use; it was like having John right therewith me in the basement! I was able to use my own yoga pad as he coached me through the exercises, correcting my form as necessary, as he could see me as well as I could see him (much better than just using a telephone).” S. Floyd
