Medical Help At-Home
Getting help without leaving home is a necessity in Northern Virginia as we begin the next phase in opening-up. More physician offices are offering telemed visits such as Canary Doctor. Patients can use their phones, tablets, or computers to talk to board-certified Emergency Medicine physician, Dr. Alex Mohseni.*  Medicare   covers these virtual visits the same as a regular office visit.

Canary Doctor offers help with a range of conditions: Coronavirus/ COVID-19 assessments and minor illness, fever, cough, cold, and flu-like symptoms; wound care; prescription refills; allergies, minor asthma and COPD issues. Remote monitoring services are provided for blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar.
