When it comes to our health, we want a dedicated professional working with us every step of the way. That’s one reason Dr. Jason Tibbels, Teladoc Health’s chief quality officer, also continues to practice as a family physician. A well-known and highly respected expert in the field of telemedicine, he is often called on to help shape policies and guidelines from a doctor’s point of view.
“Providing a virtual connection to highly trained doctors, counselors, and therapists is changing the healthcare industry,” says Dr. Tibbels. “When we can combine faster access with lower costs, we have the opportunity to improve healthcare in the U.S. and around the world significantly—especially for people who live in towns and communities far away from large cities.”
Dr. Tibbels, who graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, is also certified in hospice and palliative medicine. This unique combination of education, training, and experience has prepared him well to lead Teladoc’s Health Services. His focus is always on innovating the services that Teladoc members like you receive, no matter where you live on the map. “Our goal is to ensure that our members get the best quality care anywhere, anytime they need it, in a fraction of the time it would normally take.” No more waiting weeks for an office visit or driving for miles to an urgent care clinic.
“We love caring for our members, who have trusted us during more than 9 million visits,” Dr. Tibbels adds. “Their support has made our service successful, and we are grateful to be living our dream. Our physician experts and specialists take so much pride in helping each and every member.” Dr. Tibbels and Teladoc’s entire medical team truly value talking to members, educating them about their conditions, and relieving them of the discomfort and stress they may be feeling.
Teladoc’s network of 7,000+ U.S.-certified doctors can diagnose and recommend treatments for non-emergency conditions such as flu, sinus infections, seasonal allergies, dry skin, and much more! As we move into autumn, here are a few easy steps to help you get ready:
