Frequently asked questions about the Medgate Tele Clinic

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is medicine at a distance. The doctor and the patient don’t sit face to face, but are connected by the phone, the Internet or a video link. With precise questions and trained listening, the Medgate doctor makes an initial diagnosis and (together with you) determines a suitable treatment. State-of-the-art software supports the telemedicine doctor in making a provisional diagnosis and ensures the quality of treatment. Photos taken with a digital camera or a mobile phone may help the doctor to make a diagnosis.

Is telemedicine safe?

Yes. All our doctors have several years of clinical experience, are specially trained in telemedicine and undergo an annual examination. The telemedicine doctors are supported in their work by state-of-the-art information and communications technology.

When and from where can I call Medgate?

Teleconsultations with a Medgate doctor are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – also from countries outside Switzerland.

Can the Medgate doctor issue a medical certificate?

If medically appropriate, the Medgate doctor can issue a medical certificate after a telephone consultation. Medical certificates are issued at the discretion of the doctor and are subject to strict guidelines. The guidelines for the issue of a medical certificate can be found here.
