If you are tired of spending hours waiting past your appointment time or fighting the crowds at the walk-in clinic when you or a loved one is sick, then there is reason to rejoice. With the advances in medical care and real time communication technology there is now another option- online doctor visits. Yes, you heard that right, you can get your doctor appointments online and be seen by a doctor and get a diagnosis and treatments from the comfort of your home!
The Uniqueness of Online Doctor Offices
With online medical care, getting seen by a doctor and getting a diagnosis and receiving a prescription has never been easier, more convenient, or more affordable! There are a number of practices now offering online doctor consultations and prescription writing and most include the following perk:
● Simply register and fill out a new patient form with all of your personal information- just as you would the first time you visit any regular doctor.
● You can then talk with the doctor about your symptoms and concerns and you can get a diagnosis. Most of these virtual doctor appointments are for common minor conditions such as cold, flu, cough, hay fever, simple rashes, low fevers, and other basic ailments that generally are not serious or severe.
● Some practices offer different service levels depending on your case. For a simple cold or flu diagnosis, a phone or chat conversation may be all that is needed. But for rashes, acne, and other issues visual cues may be needed and a video chat appointment may be needed.
● Select your preferred pharmacy and if a prescription is needed as part of your care then the prescription will be sent and you can pick it up like you would any other prescription called in from your doctor.
Quick, Easy, Affordable
The best thing about these doctor appointments online is that they are fast and generally available 24/7/365 so anytime anywhere you need to be seen you can get the medical care you need! Check out MDProactive to learn even more! Like us on our facebook page.
