AFC Urgent Care Hillsdale realizes that some of our patients may not be able to leave their homes at this time to visit our urgent care center, and some may be uncomfortable. That is why we are now offering telemedicine visits seven days a week, offering patients the opportunity to confer with a physician from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a smartphone, tablet or computer and an Internet connection.
What can be seen over a telemedicine visit?
A major benefit of telemedicine is that many of the conditions you would normally go to urgent care for can be seen over a virtual visit! Common telemedicine visits include:
- Seasonal allergies
- Sore throat
- Upper respiratory symptoms
- Sinus infections
It is important to note that not every condition can be assessed and treated over a virtual visit. For excluded conditions, you will need to visit our walk-in urgent care center. We are open seven days a week from 8:00AM – 5:00PM. Conditions not covered by telemedicine include:
- Any physical examination
- Diagnosis and treatment of STDs and STIs
- Wound care including fractures or sutures
- Pregnancy or birth control consultation
- Children under five years old
- Specialist referrals
What to expect during a telemedicine visit
Registering for a telemedicine visit is simple and takes only a few minutes online. After submitting your request, a member of our staff will contact you to complete registration and collect your insurance and payment information. You will then be texted a verification code and prompted to open your account within our app. Consent to use of telemedicine, and your appointment will be ready to begin! At the start of your appointment, we will collect some information about your medical history in order to better assess your symptoms, and then your physician will be able to provide you with recommended treatment.
