Telemedicine at Capital Urology:
As a member of the American Urologic Association (AUA) TeleHealth Task Force, Dr. Singh believes that Telemedicine is one of the best solutions to address the national shortage of practicing Urologists and increase patient access to urologic care.
At Capital Urology, we strive to provide many accommodations for our patients, including innovative and advanced virtual care. Telemedicine provides a safe and convenient way for our patients to receive care, whether they are at home or traveling. Telemedicine is used for a myriad of urologic consultations for both new and established patients seeking follow-up and post-operative visits, obtain second opinions, review lab reports and medications, etc.

TeleHealth has become a modern alternative to doctor’s office visits. With the recent COVID-19 global pandemic, insurance companies are expanding their coverage in this area. Medicare has announced expanded TeleHealth coverage for all patients. Most commercial insurance providers are also following these steps, but some restrictions still may apply. We encourage you to call your insurance provider to determine if your policy covers TeleHealth services.
