Virtual Consultations in NYC
Doctors and patients are becoming more accustomed to communicating from the comfort of their own homes, especially when circumstances prevent them from having face-to-face appointments. While the concept of virtual consultations is nothing new to our global patients, the COVID-19 global pandemic has made it an integral part of healthcare. And with its convenience, accessibility, and efficiency, pubmed.gov suggests that virtual care will remain a popular option for healthcare delivery in the future.
Dr. Philip J. Miller, Manhattan’s top facial plastic surgeon, has been voted among the Best Doctors in America and Top Doctor of New York since 2007. As a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Miller uses the best techniques and latest neck and face rejuvenation technologies. To best serve clients during this time, Dr. Miller is pleased to continue to offer virtual consultations so patients can remain safely at home as much as possible. Our office adheres to precise COVID-19 safety protocols to keep our staff and patients safe and at ease during appointments.
How Does a Virtual Consult Work?
We have always offered virtual consultations as patients come in from around the world to work with our plastic surgeons, so we understand exactly how to make this option successful for our patients and doctors. You can schedule your virtual consultation with Dr. Miller, our medical aesthetician Jill Badalamente, or Dr. Steinbrech on our contact page. Just select the provider you’d like to see and the available date and time you’d prefer. You will receive a response from our New York Manhattan office, and the message will contain all the information and requirements you will need to proceed with your virtual consult. Your selected provider will host the call via Zoom or FaceTime, and you will be sent the appropriate e-vite for the meeting.
Benefits of a Virtual Consult
It is easier than ever to see the best facial plastic surgeon in New York no matter where you live in the world. As doctors are in constant pursuit of finding better ways to treat patients, technology has also continued to move forward with its many advances in the medical field. Thanks to these tech advancements, you can now have access to medical information and services that might usually be unavailable. More importantly, virtual consults have emerged as an effective preventative solution to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
One of the main advantages of virtual consults for patients is convenience. Virtual consults empower patients to converse with their doctors from anywhere. There are no boundaries for a virtual consultation. You can consult with any of our providers regardless of your location. Moreover, with all the services that doctors can provide virtually–from consultation and diagnosis to medication prescription–it certainly proves to be economical and time-saving.
Your virtual consultation also provides an excellent opportunity to get to know your doctor better, discuss your health or aesthetic goals, and ask all the questions you may have before going to your first physical visit. This way, we hope you feel even more comfortable when you visit our Manhattan, NYC office for the first time.
Procedures You Can Discuss Virtually
All our cosmetic procedures are available to be discussed virtually. However, some procedures involving functional components (e.g., breathing difficulties) may require a follow-up in-office appointment for a physical exam. Once you request a virtual consultation, we will respond to let you know if you will need to come to the office instead, but we will do our best to accommodate patients who would like to use our virtual consultation option.
How to Prepare for a Virtual Consult
Follow these tips to prepare for your appointment to ensure your virtual consultation is a success.
- Photos of areas to be treated must be sent and received prior to the virtual consultation. We will have a photo request email that we will send along with a diagram of the photos needed.
- Make sure you have a stable internet connection.
- Double-check if your camera and software are working properly.
- Make the call from a quiet and comfortable area with good lighting.
- Make sure your skin is clean and make-up-free so Dr. Miller can assess your appearance in its natural condition.
- Whether you’re considering surgery, injectables, or a laser treatment, prepare your list of questions ahead of time so you don’t forget to ask them.
If you are consulting with Dr. Miller about an eye procedure like a blepharoplasty or dermal filler injections for your under-eye trough, it’s especially important that your eyes are free of makeup so Dr. Miller can fully understand what you’d like your treatment to accomplish. A virtual consult can be very successful when details like this are considered.
