Does Mayo Clinic do long distance evaluations?
I have a relative in the ICU for 2 weeks now with ARDS and multiple organs showing poor values (high creatine, BUN, bilirubin). They get better for a few days, worse for a few days, and repeat.
Does the Mayo Clinic do any kind of distance evaluation of medical records to determine if it's worth moving an ICU patient to one of their hospitals for diagnosis and treatment? We can't just make an appointment and drive him over in the condition he's in, but we would like a second opinion.
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Intensive Care (ICU) Support Group.
Hi @florabama1, welcome.
Mayo Clinic welcomes both new and existing patients for virtual and in-person care, including elective surgeries, in adherence with federal and state executive orders and guidance.
Video and phone visits also can be great options for appointments before, after or in place of face-to-face care. Appointment coordinators will recommend a virtual visit if it best fits your individual needs.
Please contact Mayo Clinic Appointments to speak with an appointment coordinator to find out if a virtual appointment may be suitable in your situation. Here's the contact information http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63
