Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care services available through TeleMDs offer immediate medical care for injuries or illnesses when you can’t wait to see your primary care physician.

You can schedule a virtual urgent care appointment for a variety of medical issues that need prompt diagnosis and treatment including:

  • Burns
  • Rashes
  • Fractures
  • Joint pain
  • Infections
  • Muscle strains
  • Animal bites

You can also schedule a virtual urgent care consultation for symptoms that relate to an existing health condition, such as allergies, asthma, or another chronic disease.


What happens during a telemedicine urgent care visit?

Using video technology on your smartphone or computer, the TeleMDs physicians meet with you to discuss the nature of your symptoms and review your medical history.

They can evaluate physical symptoms like rashes, burns, or swelling to determine if you need additional diagnostic testing. If you need X-rays, bloodwork for infections, or other types of testing, your TeleMDs provider can refer you to a local urgent care center.

For conditions that don’t require additional testing, the TeleMDs physicians can create a treatment plan and call in prescriptions to your pharmacy if necessary.

In addition to initial urgent care evaluations, you can also schedule a follow-up appointment with the TeleMDs team to ensure your treatment is working and your symptoms are resolving.


Why should I consider urgent care evaluations through telemedicine?

Virtual visits to address urgent care situations mean you don’t have to leave home to meet with an experienced physician. TeleMDs uses easily accessible video technology that allows you to meet one-on-one with a board-certified physician when your primary care provider isn’t available.

Because you can receive comprehensive medical evaluations from the comfort of your own home, you don’t have the added expense of travel. You also limit your exposure to other illnesses if you don’t need in-office services and avoid the long wait times common in emergency rooms.

Virtual urgent care visits ensure you receive personalized medical attention when you need it most. If you do require further medical care, your TeleMDs provider can coordinate additional services through a local, affiliated urgent care center or hospital.

If you need treatment for an unexpected injury or illness, you can rely on the expertise of the TeleMDs team. Schedule a telemedicine urgent care visit by calling the office or requesting an appointment online today.
