Three months ago, I was diagnosed with a sinusitis infection that affected many aspects of my life. I have felt a heavy pressuring sensation in my face, to the point that touching it or having someone else touch it would be excruciating. I also experienced a chronic stuffy nose and had trouble falling asleep. I would always wake up coughing and feeling as though I couldn’t breathe.
These three months of living here were quite difficult. Whenever I would ride the train, the pollution, the dirt, and the lack of oxygen would cause my condition to worsen almost instantly.
I was worried about visiting hospitals and clinics where I would have to sit in waiting rooms or be exposed to different perfumes and scents that would eventually lead to migraines.
My friend told me she had limited her office visits since she discovered the telemedicine services offered at Novomed. I decided to check out their website to learn more about what telehealth entails and found the service quite promising, especially since they provide ENT telemedicine care.
I followed their booking instructions and registered at the Novomed telemedicine platform. Next, I have selected my desired specialist and a tie that worked for me. After a short while, I received an email with a video link to attend my consultation virtually.
The ENT specialist reviewed my diagnosis and asked for further clarification regarding my symptoms and how frequently I experience them. The doctor then prescribed me an antibiotic to help me avoid potentially life-threatening allergic reactions and bacterial resistance.
I was also instructed to inhale warm, moist air from a shower, bath, or sink filled with hot water to open up my nostrils. Moreover, the doctor emphasized the importance of using a humidifier at home to ensure that air is circulating around me, especially at night-time.
My first online consultation went smoothly without a hassle, and I would totally recommend it to everyone. The doctor kept close contact with me and told me to schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate my progress after seven or ten days as necessary.
