Can I Use Telemedicine for My Health Needs?
With the arrival of COVID-19 earlier this year, we've all been urged to stay at home, leaving the home only for essentials. But what happens when you need medical care?
We offer a solution! If you have a non-emergency medical need, our team at AFC Urgent Care Bronx Webster Ave. offers virtual care via AFC TeleCare. Read on as we give you the details.
What Is AFC TeleCare?
AFC TeleCare is an AFC service that connects you with one of our experienced medical providers via a virtual connection. This means that you can often receive the medical care you need while still staying in the comfort and security of home.
Care is accessed through a secure, one-on-one connection on an electronic device that has a microphone and camera. This means you can access your appointment on a smartphone, tablet or computer.
Benefits of Telemedicine
- No need to leave home
- No need to acquire child or elder care
- Quick, easy access
What Can Be Treated Using AFC TeleCare?
As we mentioned above, our telemedicine services are designed to provide care for non-emergency medical needs, just like our urgent care center is. That means we can provide care for a number of conditions, including seasonal allergies, bug bites, cold or canker sores, colds, sore throat, ear or eye infections, head lice, and sinus infections.
But with that said, there are some medical conditions that we cannot treat through AFC TeleCare.
Medical Issues That Can't Be Treated With Telemedicine
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Pregnancy-related health concerns
- Mental health issues
- Suturing or other wound care
