Convenient Telemedicine Services for Patients in Malden, MA
Tufts Medical Center Community Care makes it simple for families in Malden, Massachusetts, and throughout north suburban Boston to receive expert health guidance during these unique and challenging times. By taking advantage of our convenient telemedicine services, patients can consult virtually with our doctors from the comfort of home via a smartphone, tablet or webcam-enabled computer.
Is Telemedicine Right for Me?
Your doctor will help you determine if a telemedicine appointment is appropriate; your doctor may need to see you in person. With this in mind, telemedicine services may be an option for individuals with common health concerns or minor injuries, such as:
- Sinus infections
- Cold or flu symptoms
- Allergy symptoms
- Sore throat
- Pink eye (conjunctivitis)
- Urinary tract infections
- Minor burns or skin rashes
- Minor headaches
- Mild symptoms related to a previously diagnosed chronic condition
Tufts Medical Center Community Care practitioners can also answer general health questions through our telemedicine services and send necessary prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy.
It’s important to note that not everyone is a candidate for telemedicine. In the event that your symptoms or condition require in-person care at one of our conveniently located centers, you can be assured that we’ve taken multiple precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and providers. Some of the policies we’ve implemented include:
- Daily symptom attestation by staff
- Universal masking for staff and patients
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitization
- Changes in facility layouts to encourage social distancing
