Telehealth offers various benefits compared to traditional in-office appointments.
It allows you to meet your doctor with phone service or an internet connection. If you’re feeling sick, you don’t have to get dressed or fight traffic or sit in a waiting room and be around others.

At The Higher Care Clinic (Thc2), the doctors tailor telehealth visits to your needs. Even so, most consultations follow a similar structure.
First, your provider reviews your medical charts and asks the reason for your visit.
I.e if you have a persistent cough, they might ask to hear it; if you have a swollen or painful joint, they might ask you to point your camera at it so they can examine it close up.
After gathering that information, your provider at The Higher Care Clinic (Thc2) makes treatment recommendations. Depending on your needs, that might include: traditional medications, a medical cannabis certification, CBD therapy, testosterone replacement therapies, or routine screenings and exam, etc.
