In a world where we are now being told the safest place is to stay at home, it can be worrisome when you need medical attention.
But if you’re experiencing a non-emergency medical condition, AFC Urgent Care TN wants you to know that we’re here for you! Our locations are now offering AFC TeleCare services so you can receive the care you need from the comfort of your own home.
What Is Telemedicine?
While you might think that telemedicine is a rather new concept, it was actually first debuted back in the late 1950s. Through telemedicine, patients are able to receive the care they need without having to leave home.
During a telemedicine appointment, a patient is “seen” in real-time by a medical provider via a video chat. He or she will carefully review your symptoms and provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Benefits of Telemedicine for Patients
- No transportation time or costs
- No need to take time off of work
- No child or elder care issues
- On-demand options
- Reduced risk of catching another illness
- Less time in a waiting room
How Do I Make a Telemedicine Appointment?
If you have a non-emergency illness or injury, you can visit our website to schedule your virtual visit. Once you’ve selected a time for your appointment and filled out appropriate paperwork related to your health and symptoms, someone from our clinics will give you a call if needed to discuss your medical history.
Once your appointment is scheduled, you will receive a private link to your AFC TeleCare video chat, where you and your provider will connect. You can access the link via a computer, tablet or smartphone that’s equipped with a microphone and video capabilities.
