Telemedicine

Telemedicine

Time is something we all could use more of.  Over the last few years, I discovered that time was a major limitation for many of my patients to get the care they needed.  So I began offering Telemedicine consults.

I’ve also discovered that for many patients it’s simply more convenient.  Telemedicine help my patients to be more efficient avoiding traffic, parking, or unpredictable driving time.  Parents don’t have to stress over child care planning. High performers short on time can squeeze an appointment in from work, home or school on a break.

This is an excellent and accessible option for anyone who is unable to meet me at either of my clinic locations. I have been gradually increasing my availability for telemedicine since 2012 and will continue to increase my availability further in 2019 and into 2020. I’ve been a licensed Naturopathic doctor since 2005 practicing in Vaughan, Ontario and now I have an additional practice in Whitby, Ontario.

What if I need to be examined or need further testing?

If in our telemedicine consultation, I deem it necessary for you to be examined by a physician, then I will refer you to a walk-in doctor or back to your family physician for a physical exam or diagnostic imaging. If you need baseline or follow up blood work, I have the ability to send you a signed requisition that you can take to a LIFE LABS (billed privately) or once again send you back to your family doctor (billed through OHIP). We can review the results together at your follow up visit. If you are being monitored for weight loss, I will ask you to measure your waist circumference, and weight on the scale before each visit. I will teach you how to measure your waist circumference during your appointment, if you don’t know how. Also, if you are being monitored regularly by me for lifestyle changes, nutrition changes, fitness levels, blood sugars (if you have type two diabetes), high blood pressure etc. I will ask you to keep a record of your progress and send this record to me by email before your visit so we can discuss your progress in your allotted telemedicine visit time.

How does it work?

I use a simple, secure, medical-grade video platform where we meet face to face. Specifically for telemedicine consults we will not be meeting at a physical location. For those in remote locations, minimize your commute and access naturopathic care from the convenience of your home.

Step 1: Email info@chrehab.ca if you would like an appointment on a Monday/Wednesday or Friday. Email whitbymedical@hotmail.com if you would like an appointment on a Tuesday/Thursday or Saturday morning. Email me directly at tanyawylde@rogers.com so I can connect you with reception if there is a delay in response.

Step 2: Fill out your intake form that will be e-mailed to you before your visit, from JANE (a secure electronic medical records website) so you are not spending your valuable visit time filling out forms. Dr. Tanya Wylde, ND will best prepare for your visit by having the ability to review your completed questionnaire before your appointment. This process allows for a more effective & efficient first visit.

Step 3: Before your appointment look for your appointment email from regroup connect that will confirm the time of your appointment and provide you with a link for your telemedicine consult. At the time of your appointment you can click on the URL provided in the email or cut and paste it into your browser and it will automatically connect us at the time of our appointment through a video conferencing platform called zoom. This platform allows us to communicate face to face through video or via audio only depending on your preference. If you are using your computer then all you have to do is click on the link and we will be connected.

If you are using a smart phone or tablet you need to first download the free  zoom app. It is all very straight forward and simple to set up.

Step 4: Have an enlightening, informative visit with Dr. Tanya Wylde, ND.

Step 5: Discuss your treatment plan. And, when indicated laboratory requisition is sent directly to you to take to a nearby lab for testing. Supplement recommendations are shipped right to your door.

Step 6: Processed payment and receive receipt eligible for naturopathic coverage.

Step 7: Set up appropriate follow up appointments as needed on your journey to Optimal Health.

Please note my areas of focus are mostly conducive to Telemedicine care: Metabolic and lifestyle goals, type 2 diabetes, stress, fatigue, weight management, fertility, women’s health care concerns, chronic digestive concerns, mental health concerns. Sometimes patients request telemedicine visits between A referral is suggested when something falls outside the scope of practice or requires a physical exam.

What To Expect

All initial appointments are booked as a First Visit Naturopathic Medicine Appointment. The initial consultation is between 60-75 minutes for $275.  (Follow up Naturopathy appointments range from $53 – $205 depending on the time required) This allows me to assess each patient through multiple health systems to better arrive at the root of your concerns. These appointments can be billed through extended health insurance under Naturopathic Medicine.
