TeleMedicine for South Florida and Beyond

Our primary care clinic has been a leader in deploying Telemedicine for virtual office visits. Long before the pandemic Dr. Nunez had sponsored and supported a team from a local college with the technical development of their entry in for the Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize. We do recommend that for this kind of visit you be able to provide your vital signs and weight as a minimum.

This would include:
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Pulse
  • Blood Pressure
  • Body Temperature
  • Respiratory Rate

To do this, we advise patients keep at home the following equipment at a minimum:
  • Blood Pressure machine
  • Scale for weighing yourself.
  • Thermometer for reading body temperature.

Optional: Pulse Oximeter (a device that goes on your thumb and gives a reading for your blood oxygen levels as well as your pulse).
