In the height of the Covid-19 lockdown, many doctors went from seeing patients in person to changing their practice to tele-medicine.
I don’t like this term “tele-medicine.”
Don’t get me wrong. For years, the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine has been successfully seeing patients either through a live video stream or on the telephone. Whichever the patient is more comfortable with…
But whether I see you in person or from the comfort of your home, I practice tele-health – not tele-medicine.
And now that restrictions in most areas have been lifted, we’re entering a new era of freedom and a new opportunity to choose to focus on our health, strengthening our native immunity and moving along the health spectrum toward optimal health.
My goal isn’t to simply manage your illness by prescribing a Big Pharma medication and sending you on your way. I have a different approach to healthcare: I want to help you know your options – and choose how YOU can best take care of your own body.
The one thing I don’t want is for any of my patients to feel like they’re not getting healthcare from the Sears Institute.
So if you cannot come in person, virtual visits will give you the same doctor’s visit experience as you’ve always known it… with one big difference. It takes place over a secure, two-way video platform.
All you need is a computer, smartphone or tablet with a camera and an Internet connection. That’s it.
If you’ve used Zoom or Skype at work or to talk with your friends and family, then you know how easy video chat can be.
Tele-health allows me to bring my cutting-edge anti-aging therapies to anyone, anywhere – using the latest technology that provides a safe, easy-to-use platform.
Here’s how it works:
1. You schedule an appointment as usual.
2. Our clinic staff will send you an email with a blue link for you to click on which will activate the meeting.
3. We will call you 5 minutes before your appointment to assist you if needed.
4. Click link to connect.
During your virtual visit, we can see and hear about your symptoms firsthand. We can also schedule the required diagnostic tests and electronically submit prescriptions to the pharmacy of your choice.
And together, we create a comprehensive wellness plan that’s customized just for you.
Plus, all of your test results and records get sent directly to us. We manage and coordinate every aspect of your care – just as we would if you visited our office.
And the virtual system we have uses the most up-to-date technology to make sure your patient data is private, secure and 100% HIPAA compliant.
With tele-health, you have access to the same anti-aging and integrative medicine services that all of my clinic patients do, including breakthrough therapies for:
• Heart disease
• Alzheimer’s disease treatments
• Arthritis relief
• Hormone replacement
• ED and testosterone restoration
Today, it’s more important than ever that you don’t put your healthcare on hold. At the Sears Institute, we will always continue to provide the care you’ve come to expect – no matter how your healthcare is delivered.

To Your Good Health,
Al Sears, MD, CNS
