The use of technology has proved to be useful in ways you may have never considered, especially during these difficult times when people are encouraged to stay at home as much as possible. Telemedicine and urgent care have now come together so you can speak with a doctor over video and telephone rather than meet in person.
Telemedicine and urgent care during COVID-19
As one of the leading urgent care centers in Palm Bay, Florida, we at Restore Health are committed to continuing to provide you with medical care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. That’s why we’re proud to announce we offer telemedicine and urgent care services so you can have a virtual visit from the comfort of your home.
We want to help you feel better, faster. Our virtual visits are covered by your regular insurance, just like an office visit. If you don’t have insurance, you’ll pay just $80 for a telemedicine visit. To arrange a virtual visit, call (321) 312-4580 and press 4.
Our doctors can diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries over the phone in many cases. If you require further care or an emergency room visit, you’ll get advice about what to do next.
What to do if you’re sick
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shared important information about what to do if you are sick and how to protect yourself from COVID-19. They encourage you to stay home and call your healthcare provider if you are sick with COVID-19 symptoms or if you think you’re infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.
If you’d like to read more about coronavirus signs and symptoms, we’ve discussed them in greater length in this blog post.
Taking these measures helps protect not only you, but fellow citizens. By following their guidelines, you’re actively saving lives!
Of course, if you’re suffering from a life-threatening injury or illness, it’s best to visit an emergency room. During the COVID-19 crisis, calling ahead is recommended whenever possible.
Protecting yourself and others
Staying home when you’re sick and using telemedicine when possible is a key step to protecting yourself and others from COVID-19 and other illnesses.
There are other steps you can also take, like wearing a mask or cloth face covering if you must go out.
The CDC also shares how to clean and disinfect your home to stop the spread of the virus, whether you’re caring for someone who is sick or you’re sick yourself. Their advice includes steps for disinfecting electronics, soft surfaces, laundry, and more.
