What should I expect during a telemedicine appointment?

During telemedicine appointments, your Onyx Direct Care provider contacts you at your scheduled appointment time. They ask questions about your medical history and symptoms and discuss questions or concerns you may have. 

Your doctor might recommend you receive a blood test, imaging test, or other diagnostic procedures. They may refer you to a specialist in your area if necessary. Your Onyx Direct Care specialist can treat you virtually by recommending at-home treatments or prescribing medications to help you achieve optimal health and wellness.

Am I a good candidate for telemedicine?

If you’re a new patient and you require an in-office physical exam, you might not be a good candidate for telemedicine. But if you are a new or existing patient located in New Jersey looking for a sports medicine consultation, or have musculoskeletal pain, telemedicine might be right for you.

The Onyx Direct Care team is available when you need them for telemedicine appointments, and spend as much time as necessary to answer all your questions.
