Ailments Do Not Set Appointments
Why Should You Have To!
Pain is one of the most common symptoms individuals seek medical help for and it is also one of the most misunderstood and ineffectively treated. According to the CDC, about 20.4% of adults experience chronic pain.
Nearly half of U.S. people (47%) have hypertension (systolic blood pressure > 130 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure > 80 mmHg) or take hypertension medication.
Understanding your genes can lead to powerful insights and allow for the use of preventive, personalized, and preemptive medicine. Your unique genetic makeup determines everything from eye color to variances in your health and the way your body reacts to the medication.
It is estimated that up to 60% of the reason people get a migraine is because of their genes. Know the difference between if you are experiencing a headache or if it could be a migraine.
1-IN-4 Americans suffer from some type of skin disease or disorder. Skin conditions may vary in frequency and severity. Common types include:
Both toddlers and adults can get sick and vomit. Cancer patients receiving radiation therapy or chemotherapy are more likely to vomit. In the first trimester, pregnant women may feel nausea and vomiting, or "morning sickness." Between 50 and 90% of pregnant women have nausea and 25 to 55% vomit.
Testing can reveal if someone has both flu and COVID-19 at the same time, although this is uncommon. People with the flu and COVID-19 at the same time can have more severe diseases than people with either the flu or COVID-19 alone.

The growth and development of Urgent Care have been driven by frustration over long waits in the emergency room, and a reduction in available primary care appointments. TelevisitMD for Urgent Care is making quick access to treatment even more convenient for patients.
Frequent missed appointments and failure to adhere to treatment plans are among a few things that hurt the long-term health of patients. By making access to care less of a burden, patients become more engaged in their treatment plans.
This has long-term benefits for you, your family, and the healthcare system as a whole. Even if a physician has a modern office equipped with televisions and trendy magazines, busy parents and business professionals still prefer to avoid waiting rooms. You will appreciate the option to take the appointment from the comfort of your home or office.
The nature of Urgent Care appointments amplifies all of the cost and convenience benefits of telemedicine. People seek Urgent Care when unexpected symptoms arise. The lack of opportunity to plan ahead can make transportation and child/elder care issues even more difficult to overcome.
Expanded access to Urgent Care services reduces unnecessary visits to the ER. Every time a visit to the ER can be avoided through the use of telehealth, both the patient and the healthcare system win.
When a patient visits an Urgent Care Center, they risk exposure to communicable illness. While this can’t always be avoided, video visits help stop the spread of disease
One of the most frequent causes for patients to seek urgent care is a respiratory issue, such as a cold, the flu, seasonal allergies, or a cough. Most of the time, telemedicine can accurately identify and treat them.
Problems that affect the ear, nose, and throat, such as sinus symptoms, earache, and sore throat, are good candidates for remote video visits.
Hi-definition video capabilities make it possible to diagnose and treat certain skin conditions like insect bites, rashes, and skin infections effectively with telemedicine
The range of cases that can be addressed with telemedicine is large and includes other complaints such as conjunctivitis, upset stomach, diarrhea, urinary tract infections, and urgent medication refills
With the new focus on patient engagement, telehealth for specialty care providers has become an integral part of the healthcare delivery continuum. Follow-ups and reducing the demand for urgent care can be accomplished through the strategic use of telehealth.
