What Services are Offered Through Telemedicine?
April 08, 2020
During times of social distancing and heightened awareness of germs, it’s sometimes hard to determine when visiting a healthcare facility can wait and when it can’t. Luckily there is an option for seeking care virtually! Telemedicine allows you to visit with one of our Providers from the comfort of your own home. Below is a list of services that are offered through Telemedicine visits:
- Prescription refills
- Cold, flu, allergy and sinus symptoms
- Bronchitis, cough
- Diarrhea and vomiting
- Pink eye
- Urinary tract infection
- Common rashes and minor wounds
Just in case you’re wondering: If a Telemedicine visit leads one of our care providers to recommend physical care or testing at one of our centers, the virtual visit and the physical visit will count as one service experience.
For patients in the Charleston area, the MEDcare center in North Charleston is designated for COVID-19 testing with operating hours of 8:00am to 7:00pm.
