WomanCare offers telemedicine consults for new patients, and for ongoing herbal therapy check-ins. We use a Doxy.me web portal to establish a secure, HIPAA-compliant video-chat connection at your scheduled appointment time. Please call to set up a telemedicine appointment.
To visit the WomanCare virtual office at your appointment time, simply click on this link, or type “www.doxy.me/womancare” into your web browser. Follow prompts to enable your microphone and camera, and check into the waiting room.
Please be prepared to share any new medical updates, such as: medication, supplement, or allergy changes, new lab test or imaging results, or new diagnoses from your physician.
Uncertain whether telemedicine is appropriate for your concern? Telemedicine is a good option for many conditions, including: menstrual and fertility problems, headaches, allergies, respiratory symptoms (including COVID recovery), digestive disturbances, and some kinds of pain. Using telemedicine, I can recommend herbal therapy and modify existing formulas for a wide variety of conditions. I can also offer acupressure and/or moxibustion instruction for expectant mothers. If you are unsure if telemedicine is appropriate for you, we will be glad to advise.
The telemedicine fee for follow-up herbal/acupressure consultations is $35/visit. The telemedicine fee for addressing a new concern is $70/visit. The cost of any recommended herbs is not included in these fees.
Special instructions for patients seeking assistance with respiratory illness symptoms:
- First speak with your primary care physician’s office by phone, and follow your doctor’s recommendations.
- Chinese herbs may be a valuable option for managing symptoms and avoiding deterioration, taken either on their own or as an additional support to standard care from your physician.
- Please fill out this upper respiratory illness questionnaire before your telemedicine consult, so that I can choose the best formula to help you. During the consult, I will ask clarifying questions and check your tongue.
