Get healthcare on your schedule, not theirs. Trips to the doctor’s office are inconvenient, time-consuming and expensive. Telehealth is an easily accessible, time and money-saving alternative that gives you any time access to quality medical care from experienced and highly credentialed doctors via phone or secure online video, 24/7 every day of the year. With Telehealth, you can see a doctor from wherever you want in the US, whenever you want and without having to make an appointment. (A medical translator is also available if the physician cannot communicate in your language)
If medically appropriate a prescription can be written and sent to your local pharmacy. This is the perfect solution for quality medical care for common conditions such as: Allergies, Bronchitis, Cold & Flu, Ear Infection, Pink Eye, Asthma, Gout, Stomach Ache, Diarrhea, Poison Ivy, Urinary Tract Infection, Sore Throat, Sinus Problems, Acne/Rash, and Many More! NOTE: The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will not allow prescriptions for controlled substances to be prescribed.
Telehealth has a 90% medical problem resolution rate. Of the 10% that are not resolved via telehealth: 5% call for a DEA controlled prescription. 2% are out of the scope for a telehealth consultation, ex. chronic disease management issues. 3% are referred to Urgent Care, Primary Care Physician or the Emergency Room.
The American Medical Association reports that over 70% of all primary care and urgent care visits can be addressed by Telehealth.
