Howard Health & Wellness Adds Telemedicine Service to Wellness Practice

Naples, Florida, December 21st, 2017—Local wellness physician, Dr. Corey Howard, MD, FACP announces that telemedicine services have been added to his Howard Health & Wellness practice (www.howardhealthandwellness.com). Telemedicine joins the list of wellness services that founder, Dr. Howard offers to his patients. Combining his 25 years of experience in internal medicine, digestive health and nutrition, Dr. Howard believes in a preventative approach to health and wellness.

Through his telemedicine services, Dr. Howard can assess, diagnose and implement treatment options to his patients remotely, using web-based technology available through your phone or computer. Patients, near and far, can log into a specialized portal, complete a consultation form and submit it to Dr. Howard for review. Once reviewed, patients can choose the time that works for them and begin receiving care from Dr. Howard. Although follow-up can be scheduled, Dr. Howard’s telemedicine services are not available for management of chronic illnesses.

Telemedicine offers a variety of benefits, including the ability to remain in the comfort of your home, and also gives you access to Dr. Howard, no matter where you are, with just a couple of clicks. Telemedicine saves time and is secured through a specialized program, compliant with HIPAA standards. Facetime and Skype do not meet these standards. From general healthcare, like allergies, coughs and joint pain to more specific areas, such as infections, telemedicine is a way to interact with the doctor through phone and video, where he can order lab work and recommend at-home treatments, if available, to patients.

Dr. Howard speaks about this new area of his practice and what his hopes are for his patients.

“When you’re sick, the last thing you want to do is leave your home. Telemedicine is a way for my patients to come to me virtually and have me help them through their illness or pain. I am confident that my patients will benefit from this service and I look forward to the future of the practice as a whole,” he says.
