What Can Be Treated With a Telehealth Virtual Visit?

Telehealth is an emerging field that became vitally important during the COVID-19 pandemic. With a super-spreading virus, it became more crucial than ever for doctors and patients to have a way to connect that didn’t require an in-person visit. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we’re proud to provide Virtual Visits for our patients, allowing them to speak with one of our knowledgeable practitioners and receive top-notch medical attention from the comfort of home.

When to Seek Telehealth Services

You may be surprised by the different types of ailments that can be treated via telehealth. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, our Virtual Visits are ideal for patients experiencing:

  • Conjunctivitis – Also known as pink eye, conjunctivitis is a highly contagious eye infection that can be typically diagnosed via videoconferencing.
  • Urinary tract infections – Oftentimes, a practitioner can diagnose a UTI by learning about a patient’s symptoms over a video call.
  • Back pain – As long as the pain isn’t accompanied by numbness or tingling, we can suggest a treatment plan during a Virtual Visit. Follow-up care may be warranted, however.
  • Earaches – Having to bundle your child up and take them to an urgent care center can be a pain, especially when they aren’t feeling well. We can diagnose most earaches through our telemedicine services.
  • Colds and flu – If you’re experiencing the symptoms of the common cold or the flu, consider a Virtual Visit. We’ll learn about your symptoms to advise you on the steps you should take to feel better.
  • Gastrointestinal distress – Visiting an urgent care center while you’re experiencing nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting is nobody’s idea of a good time. We may be able to diagnose your ailment during a Virtual Visit and help you get on the road to wellness.
  • Minor injuries – If you’re wondering if your throbbing ankle simply needs ice and elevation or warrants a trip to an urgent care center for X-rays, we can help with that.
  • Heartburn and acid reflux – We’ll discuss your symptoms and lifestyle habits to help diagnose your condition and recommend a treatment plan.
  • Burns and rashes – If you have a minor burn or rash, our practitioners can provide the medical advice you need during a Virtual Visit.
  • Bites and stings – Bee sting got you down? You can use our telemedicine option to have it looked at by a medical provider.
  • COVID-19 symptoms – We can prescreen you for COVID-19 and then direct you to a nearby PhysicianOne Urgent Care location to receive the testing you need.

What’s more, our practitioners can prescribe certain medications to help get you on the road to wellness—no need to visit our urgent care center for the script! We will send it right to your local pharmacy for easy, convenient pickup.

When to Visit an Urgent Care Center

Of course, there are times when even a non-life-threatening condition still requires in-person care. We recommend that you visit one of our urgent care centers if you need:

  • IV fluids and medication
  • X-rays
  • Clinical lab testing for strep throat, mono, pregnancy, and other concerns
  • A physical examination for school, sports, camp, or pre-employment needs
  • A flu shot or another vaccination
  • Care for a broken bone or a cut that may require stitches

Our urgent care centers in New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts are open seven days per week with extended evening hours for your convenience. You can even check in online to wait in the comfort of your home until it’s time to come in!

If you need urgent care services, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is here for you. Schedule a prompt Virtual Visit with our team, and we’ll be glad to take care of you.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
