When you’re ill or injured and you don’t want to leave the comfort of your home, or if for some reason you shouldn’t leave home, what you want is telemedicine! It offers advice, diagnosis, and recommendations for treatment without you having to go anywhere. If that’s the kind of care you want, then connect with us here at SoCal Urgent Care for telemedicine in Anaheim, CA.
Telemedicine is also known as telecare, telehealth, or virtual visits with a doctor. The visit you’ll have with a SoCal Urgent Care doctor will be over the phone or via online video conference. For the latter, you’ll need a:
– Decent internet connection
– Computer or another device with a camera or microphone
Once you have those two things, you’ll be ready for a virtual visit with a doctor. Or if you don’t have those things, you can just get telemedicine over the phone. Here’s how your appointment will go:
– You’ll tell one of our doctors about your symptoms and health
– If applicable, the doctor will perform a visual examination or, if necessary, suggest a face-to-face evaluation
– The doctor will provide a diagnosis
– The doctor will recommend a treatment like a prescription or, in some cases, treatment at our clinic’s curbside
There are many, many health-related issues that can be addressed with telemedicine! Here’s a list of some of the many issues telemedicine can treat, and if you don’t see a particular condition on this list, you’re free to call and ask us about it:
