Telemedicine Services for Residents of Waltham, MA
Telemedicine is a fast and growing field in the medical industry, offering people a more convenient way to receive prompt medical attention. What is telemedicine? It’s simply using technology to diagnose and treat patients remotely. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Waltham, Massachusetts, we offer our telemedicine services to people experiencing non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses. With our Virtual Visit service, you’ll use a secure videoconferencing platform to connect with us right from the comfort of home. You’ll speak to one of our medical practitioners—someone you’d see if you came into our urgent care center for care—who will learn about your symptoms, answer your questions, and provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.
What Can Telemedicine Treat?
Telemedicine is a great option for a wide range of non-emergency illnesses and injuries, including:
- The common cold
- The flu (influenza)
- Seasonal allergies
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
- Earaches and ear infections
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- Vomiting and diarrhea
- Insect bites and bee stings
- Skin infections
- Minor sprains and strains
In certain cases, your PhysicianOne Urgent Care provider may recommend an in-person visit. This is most common if a diagnostic test, like a blood draw or digital X-ray, is needed to confirm your condition. If so, we have an urgent care center near you in Waltham to take care of the extra testing you need quickly and easily. Our facilities are open every day with extended evening hours.
