We understand that some patients may be unable to leave their homes at this time due to heightened risk of complications from COVID-19. AFC Urgent Care Tampa is now offering physician visits via telemedicine in order to make sure you get the care you need from non-life-threatening symptoms including seasonal symptoms and rashes. Telemedicine appointments are accepted seven days a week and can be conducted right from your phone, computer or tablet.
Types of Telemedicine Visits
A key benefit of telemedicine is that you can be seen for many of the same conditions you would have examined and treated during a traditional urgent care visit. However, certain symptoms may require an in-person visit. Included visits over telemedicine include:
- Upper respiratory symptoms including cold and cough
- Seasonal allergy symptoms
- Sore throat
- Sinus infections
- Insect bites
Physical symptoms and tests will require an in-person visit to our facility, including:
- Any type of physical examination, including DOT, pre-employment and athletics
- Occupational health visits
- Drug testing
- Testing and treatment of STDs
- Wound care
- Suturing and suture removal
- Referrals for specialist care
How telemedicine works
Signing up for telemedicine takes only a few minutes and can be done almost entirely online. After submitting the initial form, a member of our staff will call you to go over your insurance and payment information. Once completed, you will be texted a code to verify your account within our secure app. Open the app, enter the code and consent to the use of telemedicine. Your appointment will begin at your chosen time. After collecting relevant information about your medical history, your provider will go over your symptoms as well as treatment options.
