It might seem futuristic, but seeing a doctor online using VirtualHealthNow is really pretty easy. All you need is a computer, tablet or smartphone that has an internet connection and videochat capabilities.
First, before you need a doctor, create your free account by entering some very basic information into our secure site. It's really that easy to get started.
When you need a doctor just log in to the site and select a provider from the list of available caregivers. When the doctor has reviewed your information he/she will connect with you for your virtual face-to-face visit.
Wait times are generally less than 5 minutes.
While it can't take the place of your family doctor, this service can be a great alternative to traditional doctor's office or urgent care visits. The following situations are perfect examples of when you might use VirtualHealthNow:
Your regular doctor's office is closed or can't see you for a few days and you don't want to go to an urgent care center or hospital Emergency Room
You'd like a diagnosis and treatment for a common health concern (like a cold, cough, allergies, the flu, pinkeye, rashes, etc.)
You think seeing a doctor would be a good idea but you can't fit it into your schedule.
You'd like a second opinion
VirtualHealthNow physicians can only provide a prescription in accordance with state laws and when medically appropriate.
Prescriptions for controlled medications (including narcotic pain medications, benzodiazepines, etc.) cannot and will not be filled. Please contact your prescribing provider for refills.
If you are having a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1 or proceed to the nearest emergency room.
**Some devices (e.g., Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Note 10.1, Pantech P9070) are not supported at this time.
