Telemedicine appointments are now available at Astera Radiation Oncology.
At Astera Radiation Oncology, our top priorities are your health and safety, the health and safety of your family—and of our staff and the communities we serve. That’s why we now use telemedicine to conduct most appointments.
With telemedicine, you keep your appointment with your Astera Radiation Oncology physician, but from the comfort and safety of your home. Instead, your appointment is a video-based doctor visit, limiting your risk of coronavirus exposure by keeping you away from the office and other patients.
Telemedicine brings your doctor to you.
All you need for a remote appointment via telemedicine is an Internet-connected smartphone, tablet or computer with a camera and microphone. Once you access our virtual clinic, your appointment will take place as it normally would, with your doctor and you discussing all relevant concerns, needs, results and next steps.
The purpose for seeing you remotely is to keep you safe while keeping your cancer treatment moving forward. If you need to be seen in our offices or come in for treatment, this remains our commitment. We’re taking (and continually reviewing and updating) special measures to minimize the risk to you and your loved ones.
