What is the difference between Telemedicine and Local-Telemedicine?
Many national companies have opened tele-medicine/tele-health services. These medical providers do not have access to your medical information, nor do they have a local office where they can assist you further if necessary.
Hilltop Medical Clinic now offers Local-Telemedicine services with the doctors you’re already familiar with; Dr. Pierce, Dr. Jorde and Dr. Phillips. Our physicians have full access to all of your medical records accumulated at Hilltop Medical Clinic for you. An added benefit is for you to be able to get quick service if your doctor prescribes a test or medication. We also have many medications in-house for a very low price.
At this time, the Local-Telemedicine hours match our clinic hours. As the popularity of this convenient concierge service grows (it is currently covered by your health insurance), we may extend this service into the evening hours for those of you who need after work care. The more you utilize local telemedicine, the more hours we can provide for you.
