Get care where and when it’s most convenient for you
Why go out of your way for quality care when you can have a video visit anytime, anywhere? A video visit1 is a virtual chat you can have with your primary care physician from any remote location, using your smartphone, tablet, or other camera-equipped device.
When you’re dealing with a cold, the flu, or physical pains, the last thing you want to do is leave the comfort of your home to make a trip to the doctor. With video visits, your doctor can come to you instead.
Video visits are available for many conditions, including:
- Cough, cold, sore throat, allergies, and sinus conditions
- Pink eye
- Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
- Aches and pains
- Minor injuries
- Skin conditions
- Urinary issues
- Sleep or mood problems
Video visits are also great for getting quick, easy advice from your physician regarding previous conditions that have not improved, chronic and mental health conditions, and the proper use of medication for various conditions.
Because your primary care physician can access your health information via your electronic medical record, your care is always seamless, convenient, and connected. You get the same quality care from a video visit that you would when visiting your personal physician in their office.
