Throughout time, medicine has always changes and evolved. Each century brings with it new developments and progress. In the 19th century we found out about germs and bacteria, in the 20th century we discovered penicillin, and in the 1980s we started commonly performing arthroscopic surgery. We are now well into the 21st century and the next major development has arrived: telemedicine. But what exactly is telemedicine, what are the advantages of an online urgent care in Spring Hill, and how does it work?
Put simply, telemedicine is the ability to see a doctor remotely. Instead of coming to the doctor’s office, you can speak with him/her from the comfort of your own home – or wherever you are. Obviously, not everything can be done remotely – for example, flu shots cannot be given remotely. However, many other regular appointments – and consultations – can be just as effectively handled online.
There are several advantages to scheduling your next urgent care visit online. First and foremost, you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Let’s face it, if you are scheduling an appointment with an urgent care, it probably means you are sick or have been injured. When you’re feeling sick, the last thing you want to do is drive somewhere. So the ability to see a doctor from your own home (or even bed!) is a great option to have.
Secondly, let’s imagine you are on vacation, yet would still like to see your local doctor for his/her advice a sickness or injury you have sustained. By booking a doctor visit online, you can easily – and quickly – get a consultation from your regular physician.
This brings us onto the next advantage – scheduling. Scheduling online is very quick and easy. You can see which appointment times are available, allowing you to easily schedule an appointment which is convenient for both you and the doctor.
Scheduling an appointment is very simple. As per the diagram below, simply go to the Services section of our website, then click on Telemedicine. From that screen, you’ll then see a large blue button “Make an Appointment”. You’ll then be asked to enter a few basic details and to choose a time to make your appointment. It really is as simple as that.
