When Is it a Good Idea to Use Telemedicine Services?
Although some illnesses and injuries require an in-person medical consultation for diagnosis and treatment, others can be effectively evaluated remotely using telemedicine services. At Ouch Urgent Care, online doctor visits are available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. You can schedule your virtual consultation using our convenient online service.
Here are a few of the conditions that are typically good candidates for a virtual doctor consultation:
- Sore throats
- Gastrointestinal discomfort
- Rashes and other skin conditions
- Minor sports injuries
What’s more, patients can often use our telehealth services to receive monitoring or follow-up consultations for an ongoing health condition. In other cases, we can screen patients who may have a contagious condition and provide a referral for medical testing. If your online consultation indicates a need for lab testing or digital X-rays, you can schedule an appointment to receive those diagnostic services at our fully equipped urgent care clinic.
Additionally, patients who think they may have contracted COVID-19 can schedule an online doctor visit to discuss their symptoms and, if appropriate, receive a referral for coronavirus testing at an authorized testing site.
