The Virtual Visits app lets you connect with a doctor when you need quick, convenient treatment. Skip the trip to the office and video consult a doctor from home, work, or anywhere in California. A face-to-face visit with a doctor is only a few clicks away.
Urgent 9, Urgent Care Center is one of the most comprehensive urgent care centers complete with its own imaging center. Why is that important? Because it is the closest thing to an Emergency Room at a fraction of the cost.
With Virtual Visits, getting the care you need is simple. Here’s how it works:
A: Your doctor actually doesn’t need to do a physical exam to diagnose and treat many conditions. That’s because knowing your medical history is considered “90% of the evaluation” when combined with the doctor-patient interaction. How you’re feeling can be just as important to your doctor as the results of a physical exam. Plus, being able to see you and view any picture uploads via Virtual Visits gives your doctor the additional visual information needed to make a diagnosis.
A: Yes. If your doctor decides you need treatment, he or she will send your prescription electronically to your pharmacy so it’s ready to pick-up when you arrive.
A: Doctors can use the Virtual Visits app to treat and manage a wide range of conditions, from sinus infections to post-operation follow-up care. Check with Urgent 9 to get a more complete list of the conditions.
A: If you have a medical emergency, please dial 911 immediately. Virtual Visits shouldn’t be used for emergency care.
A: Yes. The Virtual Visits app is 100% HIPAA compliant, so any personal health information you provide is completely safe and secure.
A: You do need a few basics: a computer or compatible mobile device (tablet or smart-phone), a web-cam, and a microphone. If your computer or mobile device already has an integrated camera and microphone, you shouldn’t need any extra equipment to get started.
A: Yes! We designed the Virtual Visits app to be very user-friendly. Imagine Skype, but with a few more bells and whistles to give you and your doctor everything you need to have a successful visit.
A: When you meet with a telemedicine physician, you will have a chance to explain the physical conditions or symptoms that concern you. You will be able to ask the doctor questions and get the answers you need right away. You will also be able to schedule follow-up visits and annual exams per your doctor’s recommendations. You can finally get medical care on your terms. Rather than put your life on hold just to visit your doctor’s office or urgent care facility, Urgent 9 offers virtual visits that keep you and your family healthy without interrupting your work, family life, or vacation.
Getting started is easy! Ask the Urgent 9 staff about setting up a Virtual Visits account.
