You will want to be able to provide a brief medical history as well as common data such as age – height – weight. You will need a list of medications that you are currently taking–both prescription and over-the-counter. Finally, you will need the name and number of your pharmacy in case your doctor wants to phone in a prescription.
Medco TeleHealth service is available for a variety of non-emergency conditions for patients over the age of three. To open an account, you must be 18 or older. For patients under the age of 3, we recommend an in-person visit to your pediatrician, urgent care facility or emergency department.
Telemedicine is a great way to conference call with a physician. If you have a common or routine medical concern that is not an emergency and does not require special equipment, such as imaging, you can have easy access to a physician through this platform. However, it cannot take the place of in-person care for serious and life-threatening medical conditions. Additionally, it is not a good way to get refills for medications or to obtain prescription painkillers.
All of our physicians are board-certified and have years of experience practicing medicine. They are all qualified to address routine medical conditions and bring you the top level of Health care that you deserve.
