How Do Online Doctor Visits Work?

Online medical appointments have remained popular since the COVID-19 epidemic, and for a good reason. They let you get quality medical care from the comfort and safety of your home. If you want to get the most out of your online doctor visit, consider working with our team at CareMD. We offer affordable telehealth services to meet your medical and health needs.

How Online Doctor Visits Work

Virtual doctor visits help make access to healthcare more convenient. They connect you with your doctor in an easy and time-friendly manner via devices like:

  • Smartphone
  • Tablet
  • Laptop
  • Desktop

It means you won't have to go to your doctor's office or wait in line for hours. Instead, you use your smartphone or laptop to complete an online intake form.

This form lets you provide details about your health issue or concerns, including medical history. Then schedule an appointment with the doctor. You can do this appointment when you are at work, on a lunch break, or at home. You can pick the most convenient time for the appointment to talk to your doctor through a video call. This saves you travel costs and time waiting for the doctor at the office.

Feel free to show your injury to the doctor for assessment. If it's an infection, your doctor will ask you questions to learn more about it. After the visit, the doctor might send a prescription to your local pharmacy for pick up. Some of the health issues your doctor will address after a virtual visit can include:

  • Dental infection
  • Strep throat
  • Cold sore
  • Respiratory infection
  • Bladder (urinary tract) infections
  • Genital herpes
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Skin rash
  • Sinus infection
  • Ear infection
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Vaginal yeast infection

At CareMD, we offer a telemedicine platform that makes online doctor visits seamless. It gives you text, video calls, or voice options to talk to your doctor. We create a custom treatment plan and send prescriptions to solve your problem and keep you healthy.

Why Virtual Doctor Visits Are Helpful

Virtual doctor visits don't require extensive lab tests or physical exams. All you need is to make an appointment based on your needs to get the best care. Below are a few ways online doctor visits are deemed helpful:

  • Prevents Germs from Spreading: If you are sick with an illness that is easily transferrable, it is best to keep yourself quarantined away from others who could also contract that illness. Virtual visits allow you to stay away from other people while still getting the help you need.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Virtual visits make it easier for your provider to check in with you to assess your progress. They can send prescriptions to your pharmacy if needed.
  • Counseling and Education: Virtual visits work best when your doctor wants to counsel or educate you. It is easy to quickly teach you about a disease or pain management.

At CareMD, we offer fast, convenient, and confidential telehealth services. Whether you want a routine medical check-up or to learn how to manage your issues, we are here to help you.
