What conditions are not appropriate for an online visit with a women's health clinician?
Conditions requiring a physical examination will need to be seen in person. Many diagnoses and treatment plans can be started online, however physical examinations or lab tests may be recommended for irregular bleeding, yeast infections, and hemorrhoids. Your online provider can provide counseling for typical presentations of endometriosis, vulvodynia, and pelvic pain however for more unusual or severe cases you may be referred for an in-person examination.
