Hypothyroidism

How we can help.

The thyroid gland (located in the front of the throat) releases hormones that control how fast chemical functions work (metabolic rate). The thyroid hormones help control how you burn calories, your heart rate, and temperature among many other functions. Hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) means your thyroid isn’t making enough thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism is common among older women as well. Hashimoto thyroiditis is the most common cause. Symptoms include feeling tired, sluggish, with intolerance to cold. Blood tests including TSH, T4, Free T4 and T3 are commonly ordered as well as parathyroid studies (another gland located on the outer quadrants of the thyroid gland itself). We can help by refilling your medications (synthroid, levothyroxine, etc) or helping you manage your dosing with the previously mentioned blood tests (ordered and obtained at your local lab).

How long is the visit?

Most visits are between 5 to 10 minutes based on complexity. Your online visit is kept efficient so you can save time and money instead of driving and waiting for an appointment. You will receive written education about your symptoms / diagnosis and a prescription or refill if appropriate. You can have the prescription sent to your local pharmacy within a matter of minutes or a few hours after your visit.

You don’t require insurance.

There are no hidden fees for our service. Each visit is $39 with an experienced provider. You will simply cover your medications or testing fees that we may order for you after the visit.

How we help through Telemedicine.

Telemedicine has been around since the 1980’s and has vastly improved since then. We are unable to perform a full physical exam, but we can treat you based on your history and symptoms, physical / visual presentation and overall condition. We are able to provide a diagnosis with a high degree of accuracy and provide follow up visits by secure messaging or further visits to ensure effectiveness of your treatment.

Can you refill or prescribe xanax, oxy, norco or other controlled drugs?

We are unable to refill or prescribe opiates, controlled substances, and anti-psychotics. Please contact us if you are unsure if the medication you need is controlled.
