David S. Feldman, MD is now offering Telemedicine consults.
While nothing can replace an examination and discussion in person, due to the world situation, telehealth has become a reality and can be quite useful for new appointments and follow up.
In order to evaluate you or your child to the best of our ability, we request at least two people, in addition to the patient, be present for the appointment. You will need one person to hold the phone/video device, and another to perform the physical exam. Please position yourself in an area with adequate lighting and an open space to lay down and/or walk when we visualize the physical exam. We also recommend the patient wear a t-shirt and shorts so we can fully evaluate the extremities and the range of motion.
X-rays, MRIs, and Cat scans can be downloaded to our system to be reviewed prior to the appointment. The office staff will instruct you on how to do this.
Disclaimer: Telemedicine is not appropriate for emergency situations. For medical emergencies, please call 911 and go to the nearest emergency room. If you are staying locally in West Palm Beach, St. Mary’s Emergency Room is the most convenient for Dr. Feldman, Dr. Huser and their team to be involved in your care.
