By now, many people have heard about Telehealth, but that doesn’t mean they feel confident enough to use it. Yet Telehealth is so convenient and easy, you don’t even need a computer to have that virtual appointment.
In this podcast, Debra Roy, a MarinHealth Medical Network Practice Manager, explains how you can schedule that doctor’s appointment you need, even in a pandemic. She also addresses ease of use, privacy, and security concerns, and when an in-person appointment becomes necessary.
Debra Roy graduated from Cornell University with a bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition. She began her career in Medicine doing HIV and nutrition research with Dr. Marcus Conant in San Francisco. As her study ended she transitioned into Medical Practice management. In the last 30 years Debra has managed a wide range of medical offices. She currently manages MarinHealth Critical Care and Pulmonology | A UCSF Health Clinic, MarinHealth Infectious Disease | A UCSF Health Clinic, and MarinHealth Primary Care | A UCSF Health Clinic. Debra loves being an active part of the patient care team by helping to create a safe, warm and welcoming environment for patients, staff and providers. The office operates on three principles – we will focus on the patient, we’ll fully support our providers as they practice medicine and team work enhances every aspect of the care experience.
