As the global pandemic continues to stretch ahead, individuals are leaning more and more on virtual communities in order to avoid large crowds. For many patients living with chronic health conditions, the risk of becoming ill poses higher risk, making it vital that they find safe alternatives to seek the treatment they need for their health. At Wellspire Medical Group in Humble, TX, we want to help continue to fight against the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Our physicians are offering virtual care for their established patients as well as new patients, in order to help them minimize the amount of time in the office that they spend. We believe that safe healthcare should be accessible to everyone, and will continue to make efforts to increase the convenience of care for our patients. Whether you are in need of an appointment with your PCP or you are seeking the care of a specialist, the team at Wellspire Medical Group can help you get set up with a virtual appointment to meet your needs.
These days, everyone is glued to their smartphones and other smart devices. We used them to interact with others and to interact with the world around us. Now more than ever these smart devices are helping us to navigate this world and discover effective solutions to the way we live our lives while keeping us all at a safe distance while the fight against the highly contagious COVID-19 virus continues forward. One major change we have seen is in the health community, making telemedicine a widespread option for patients with many different medical backgrounds. Telehealth provides safe and convenient care, without the risk of being exposed to other patients who may be contagious.
So which health conditions can be managed virtually?
Telemedicine is an effective option for individuals that are seeking non-emergency, non-life-threatening, medical care. This virtual alternative is changing the way doctors see patients for a wide range of different health concerns. This can include acute illnesses, chronic disease management, post-surgical care, medication monitoring, mental health counseling, and more. Telemedicine is an increasingly more popular solution for those with busy schedules, those who cannot commute to their doctor’s office, and especially for those who wish to minimize their exposure to other patients.

Anxiety, Depression, Mental Health Concerns
Heartburn, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
Minor Cuts, Burns, Other Skin Conditions

Drive-Thru COVID-19 Testing in Humble TX
