TeleHealth Video Consultations with Dr. Ashish Das
TeleHealth general information
TeleHealth allows patients to have a secure consultation with Dr Das using an internet-based video and audio platform. It will be the same as having a consultation in his office without being physically present. Dr Das will not be able to perform a physical examination, which may be required at a later date.
It is intended for:
- New and follow-up patients living in remote areas
- New and follow-up patients living in Metropolitan Brisbane but far enough away from Dr Das’s office to make a consultation in person difficult. This applies to patients who are relatively infirm or where transport into the centre of Brisbane would be difficult
- New patients who wish to have a general discussion about their condition before deciding if they need to attend in person for a physical examination
- Follow-up patients who feel that a physical examination will not be necessary. The obvious advantages are that it will save on time and the cost of travelling to Dr Das’ office.
What do I need to access my TeleHealth video consultation?
You will require a PC or Mac (desktop or laptop) or mobile device (iPad or Smartphone) that has built in video and audio functions or is connected to similar external devices. A standard ADSL Internet connection is also required. You will need to have Skype installed and be able to provide us with your Skype username.
What is the process?
Dr Das is available for TeleHealth consultations at dedicated times using Skype. Please call our office on (07) 3831 9611 to make an appointment.
A referral from your GP or referring specialist is required as per usual.
Medicare rebates are available for eligible patients.
