Covid 19 Announcement: Now offering Telemedicine Services.
Walton Family Medicine, P.C. is offering Telemedicine services to facilitate the care of
our patients during the Covid 19 pandemic. The American Academy of Family Physicians defines
Telemedicine as the practice of medicine using technology to deliver care at a distance between a
patient and provider (AAFP website, 2020).
Currently, we are conducting Telemedicine appointments during our regular business hours
Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5 pm. The telemedicine appointments are billed through the
patient’s insurance. During the appointment, the patient will speak with a Physician or Nurse
Practitioner over the telephone or computer; discuss current signs and symptoms or chronic medical
conditions and receive treatment recommendations. Acute visits conducted during telemedicine visits
may include common colds, seasonal allergies, and advice regarding coronavirus and exposure.
Chronic care management available during Telemedicine visits may include diabetes management,
medication follow-up, and Mental Health conditions, etc. Please call our office at 770-267-7093 for
