Telemedicine at Texas Center for Proton Therapy
Connecting patients with specialized cancer care at Texas Center for Proton Therapy, no matter where you live.
Telemedicine enables Texas Center for Proton Therapy physicians to connect directly with patients who need highly specialized care, even if they live many miles away. With telemedicine, patients across Texas have access to our extensive and diverse expertise in proton therapy, while saving time and expense by limiting travel to a distant treatment facility. It also offers patients options to visit with their doctor when traveling to the clinic is not ideal. Currently, due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, travel to the clinic may not be ideal because either the patient is at risk or the patient may live in a community at risk.
Telemedicine does not completely eliminate the need for patients to travel for treatment and in-person doctor visits. But, the robust communications technology effectively extends the reach of Texas Center for Proton Therapy by allowing some consultations to take place remotely.
During the coronavirus pandemic, we have grown telemedicine services to allow physicians to evaluate patients that have infectious risk without bringing them into the clinic. It also allows us to continue to actively follow our regular patients while keeping our clinic volumes low.
Currently, telemedicine from Texas Center for Proton Therapy requires patients to follow these instructions to request a consult.
