Dr. Julie Gelman
Imagine that you are a busy business woman with a full schedule of clients, family obligations and important meetings. At 8:00 a.m. you’re not feeling well enough to leave your home. What choices do you have as you look at your day’s agenda? One option is to cancel half of your business appointments and make arrangements for a friend to pick up the kids from school, or the second option is to make one phone call to a telemedicine service and have a prescription called in to your pharmacy to start medication within hours. Learn more about this advanced healthcare option from Dr. Julie Gelman at the Oceanside dinner meeting on Tuesday, September 23, 2014!
Rapidly gaining in popularity due to convenience, affordability, and privacy, telemedicine involves the exchange of health information by means of modern electronic methods as your cell phone. Through telemedicine you can speak to a doctor on the phone and receive quality healthcare without having to drive to an office. Learn which conditions are appropriate for telemedicine, the difference between available telemedicine services, and how telemedicine can fill the gaps in your current healthcare and make your very busy lifestyle flow much easier!
Dr. Julie Gelman earned her first doctoral degree in dentistry in 1988, and practiced dentistry in Chicago for four years. Unfulfilled in this career path, she decided to return to school to study medicine. After earning her medical degree from Rush Medical College in 1993, and graduating in the top ten percent of her class, she completed her residency program in Internal Medicine at Lutheran General in Park Ridge, IL, and achieved Board Certification in Internal Medicine. Dr. Gelman and her husband, Dr. Clifford Gelman later moved to Florida where She joined Osler Medical Group in 1996, became a partner within two years and continued employment there until 2011, when she opened her own independent practice in Melbourne. In 1997, Julie was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and treated with chemotherapy. Due to persistent side effects of the chemotherapy, she can no longer tolerate any fragrance and respectfully requests that guests refrain from wearing perfume the evening of her presentation.
Dr. Gelman draws on her experience as a patient, knowledge as a dentist, training in traditional medicine, and personal holistic philosophy in her approach to treating patients. Invite your friends to join you for this interactive presentation and make your reservations today!
