Our goal is to accurately diagnose the cause of pain and create a plan to treat that pain whether it is from an auto injury, work-related injury, spinal issue, muscle spasm, cancer, arthritis, diabetic neuropathy, shingles, or failed surgery.
We are offering Telehealth visits as a way of providing care to our patients. Many health plans are covering Telehealth visits now and often waiving copays and deductibles due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is Telehealth? "Telehealth services include office visits, consultations, and certain other medical or health services that are provided by an eligible provider who isn't at your location using an interactive 2-way telecommunications system (like real-time audio and video)."
You may initiate a Telehealth visit by calling our office at 863-732-7246, and we will schedule a time that is convenient for both you and Dr. Shah. For the visit you will need a smart phone, tablet, or a computer with a camera. A smartphone is the optimal tool.
We are using the Telehealth service Doxy.me which provides face-to-face visits that are like being in the office all while enjoying the comfort of your own home. Once the appointment is booked, you will receive a text or email invitation to join the visit. Within a window of time, our office staff will update your medical information and then a doctor will connect with you to obtain addition details of your symptoms or concerns.
