Some patients may be unable to leave their home during this unpredictable and uncertain time, even for essential trips like medical care. Urgent Care of Mercer County is now offering telemedicine as an alternative method for patients to get the care they need, when they need it. Appointments are scheduled over the phone and accepted seven days a week.
What is telemedicine and how does it work?
Telemedicine is a remote visit with your medical provider over the phone or a video call, allowing you to go over your symptoms as well as treatment options. By scheduling a remote visit with your medical provider, you can limit your time in public as well as your potential exposure to COVID-19. To have a telemedicine visit, you simply need a smartphone, tablet or computer with an internet connection and video calling capabilities. Simply call Urgent Care of Mercer County to register for a visit and have your insurance and payment information collected, as well as initial symptoms for your provider.
What symptoms can be seen over telemedicine?
Many of the conditions you would normally visit Urgent Care of Mercer County for can be seen over a telemedicine video call, including:
- Seasonal allergy symptoms and mild to moderate reactions
- Upper respiratory symptoms including cold, cough, sore throat and fever
- Mild to moderate asthma symptoms
- Ear pain, infections and swimmer’s ear
- Sinus pain and infections
- Cellulitis, rashes and sunburn
Physical symptoms and examinations cannot be assessed or performed over telemedicine and will require an in-person visit to Urgent Care of Mercer County. Our center is open to walk-in patients seven days a week for your convenience.
