We understand that many of our patients may be unable to leave their homes during this unusual and challenging time, even to a visit to a walk-in urgent care for treatment of many injuries and certain illnesses. AFC Urgent Care Northern Liberties is now offering visits with our physicians via Telemedicine seven days a week, allowing you to get the care you need right from your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Conditions Assessed During Telemedicine Visit
Many conditions addressed during a standard visit with one of our physicians can be seen, diagnosed and treated over a Telemedicine appointment, including:
- Seasonal allergy symptoms and reactions
- Sore throat
- Sinus infections
Certain conditions cannot be treated over telemedicine and will require an in-person visit to our walk-in urgent care center, which is open seven days a week. Visits that are excluded from care over telemedicine include:
- Physical examinations
- STDs and STIs
- Pregnancy or birth control
- Controlled substance prescription or renewal
- Wound care
- Children under five years
- Referrals to specialists
How can I make a Telemedicine appointment?
In order to register for a Telemedicine appointment, you simply need to register online. Within a few minutes of submitting the initial form, a member of our team will contact you to collect insurance and payment information. After registration is complete, you will be texted a verification code and prompted to access our app. Enter the code to verify your account and consent to the use of telemedicine in order to confirm and book your appointment.
What should I expect during my Telemedicine appointment?
When your visit begins, a member of our staff will be on the call in order to collect any necessary information about your medical history. After the information has been collected, your physician will join the video call and you will be able to go over your symptoms like a standard visit to our center. The physician will be able to provide you with treatment options and recommendations for how to proceed.
