A leading urgent care provider in Waterbury, Connecticut, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is pleased to offer our patients the option of Virtual Visits to make our health care services even more convenient and accessible than they already are. Our telemedicine services can be a good alternative to an in-person office visit if you don’t feel well enough to leave home or you would prefer to avoid spreading germs and exposing yourself and others to illness.

What Happens During a Virtual Visit?

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, a Virtual Visit is very similar to an in-person visit. However, instead of talking with a provider in the same room, you will communicate via a private and secure videoconferencing platform installed on your mobile device or desktop computer. You will be able to see and hear each other clearly, and you can even have a trusted family member or friend present to provide comfort and serve as a “second set of ears,” if you like.

During your telemedicine visit, your provider will ask you to tell your story by discussing your health history, symptoms, and concerns in detail. He or she will then answer your questions and advise you of your next steps, which may include an office visit if you need a lab test or hands-on care, such as stitches for a wound or a cast for a fracture.

When Is It Appropriate to Use Telemedicine?

If you are comfortable, we encourage you to take advantage of our telehealth services if you are experiencing a non-life-threatening illness or injury. For instance, during a Virtual Visit, we can treat:

  • Sinus and respiratory infections, such as the common cold and flu
  • Mild asthma and allergy symptoms
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Sore throats
  • Eye infections
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

The world around us is changing by the minute, and PhysicianOne Urgent Care is committed to quickly adjusting to those changes to ensure that we can continually provide our patients in Waterbury with the best possible health care. If you would like to take advantage of our telemedicine services, request a Virtual Visit today.

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

Patient
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!"

Patient
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."

Patient
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."
