What is this telemedicine stuff that I keep hearing about?Telemedicine allows for communication between you and your clinician using electronic means without leaving your home! As our practice moves towards a telemedicine platform, we are using a novel approach to getting our patients set up on their needed PAP equipment. Through audio/video technology, our CPAP coordinators will smoothly walk you through the process of setting up your PAP equipment while you relax in the comforts of your own home! This allows us to provide a highly individualized approach to your set up, putting you in control!
What to expect at your CPAP setup?Due to community concerns about Coronavirus, we’re dedicated to reducing the exposure to our patients. If PAP therapy is right for you, an appointment with one of our PAP professionals will orient you to choosing the right equipment that’s best for you. They will answer all of your questions so you feel comfortable about the next steps in your care.
After receiving your PAP equipment, our CPAP professionals will help you become acquainted with your new device. Maintenance, operation, and your expectations will be discussed in detail so you can get the maximum benefit from therapy.
