During this chaotic, uncertain time, Hermann Wellness is happy to provide telemedicine visits to new and existing patients. With telemedicine, you can receive the primary care physician services that you need without leaving the comfort and safety of your home.
Access to Care with Telemedicine
With telemedicine, we’re able to offer medical care to patients without the need for in-office appointments. As people are advised to stay at home during the current COVID-19 outbreak, telemedicine can help you receive the care that you need without the stress of venturing outside.
Telemedicine visits provide direct communication between a doctor and patient, typically using a video call, to address current medical needs and concerns. Virtual doctor appointments can also provide you with expert advice for staying safe and healthy during this turbulent time.
Telemedicine is an effective solution for needs that don’t require a physical exam. At Hermann Wellness, Dr. Hermann can support a wide range of needs through telemedicine, including:
- Skin disorders
- Thyroid disorders
- Hormone disorders
- Osteoarthritis and joint disorders
- Back problems
- Cholesterol problems
- Upper respiratory conditions
- Anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder
- Chronic neurologic disorders
- High blood pressure
Telemedicine visits from Hermann Wellness can be used to support current needs. When the period of social isolation due to COVID-19 has ended, patients should return to their usual primary care doctor. Additionally, if you’re experiencing a medical emergency, visit the emergency room.

Safer at Home, Not Suffer at Home
Dr. Anne Hermann explains how telemedicine can keep you safe
On March 26th the American Medical Association published an article supporting health care delivery via phone or email, a service known as telehealth. The AMA cited telehealth as a way to protect patients during a pandemic. CDC guidelines also urge medical providers to offer telehealth to prevent patients from coming to the office and potentially exposing themselves to germs.
Many medical offices in Florida have closed their doors after Florida Governor Ron Desantis issued an order that prohibits health care practitioners from providing non-urgent procedures. The result is that thousands of routine medical visits have been cancelled or delayed. So, how are people to renew prescriptions, treat minor infections, allergies, autoimmune flares, migraines and the like? Dr. Anne Hermann, MD, a board-certified internal medicine physician and founder of Hermann Wellness, states, “Contact your usual providers. They may be offering telehealth for non-urgent issues. If not, practices that do offer telemedicine can help you.” Hermann Wellness is offering temporary relief. During the coronavirus crisis, Dr. Hermann is providing telemedicine and will devote the first hour of her morning to treating patients who do not have income free of charge.
Dr. Hermann also says that “if you have a prescription for lab work or a test, such as a mammogram or colonoscopy, ask your provider if it is safe to put off that test until the coronavirus crisis is over. For routine visits, a few months delay should be OK, but you should ask your provider in case he or she thinks you need the test sooner.”
Telehealth protects people from exposure to Covid-19. Providers can evaluate and treat a host of non-urgent issues and call in prescriptions to a local pharmacy. Even when “Safer at Home” orders are lifted, the Covid-19 virus will remain in our community and elderly people may benefit from remote medical care for some time to come. While telehealth providers can’t test individuals for coronavirus, they can help identify who needs to seek a test. If you have questions, contact your provider.
Dr. Hermann is a Columbia University trained Internist who founded Hermann Wellness in 2004 with the goal of helping patients achieve optimal health.
