MSK is doing everything possible to keep you safe. Medical oncologist Nitya Raj explains how telemedicine can help you get the care you need, from the comfort of your home.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, MSK has expanded its use of telemedicine, otherwise known as phone and or video technology across all of our specialties. If your doctor thinks your appointment can be conducted as a televisit, this will be recommended to you. A televisit allows us to use technology in order to provide you care while you are at home, minimizing your travel during this time. During a televisit, we will do all of the things that we do during an on-site visit, including taking your history, doing a physical examination, and discussing with you our recommendations and management plan. We will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
