However, if you need diagnostic tests, vaccinations, or other hands-on treatments, feel free to schedule an in-person visit with Dr. Pearlstein.

What should I expect during telemedicine appointments?

During telemedicine appointments, Dr. Pearlstein calls you during your scheduled appointment time. She discusses your medical history, lifestyle habits, symptoms, and concerns or questions you may have. She reviews the results of your blood tests or other diagnostic tests if they’re available.

Using your electronic device, she can complete a virtual physical exam to evaluate any new or unusual symptoms before tailoring your treatment plan. You might need rest, more fluids, injury treatments, wound care, dietary supplements, or over-the-counter or prescription medicines. 

If needed, Dr. Pearlstein refers you to a specialist for complex medical problems and follows up with you to ensure you stay as healthy as possible. 

When should I schedule telemedicine visits?

Schedule a telemedicine visit with Dr. Pearlstein any time you feel ill, have medical concerns, or develop unusual symptoms. She spends as much time as you need to answer questions or concerns. If you’re due for an annual wellness checkup or physical, schedule an in-person visit.
