Accessing Healthcare with Video Visits
Accessing quality healthcare is more important than ever, especially for individuals with limited mobility or who live in rural areas. Often, the most vulnerable populations may opt to defer treatment of medical, behavioral health, or dental need based solely on the inability to make the trip into a health clinic. The global pandemic has increased the difficulty of health care access and discouraged many from receiving the help they need.
Urgent Care Video Visits
With urgent care video visits, you can see a provider in as soon as 30 minutes. Use the scheduling button below to sign up, but check that you do not have a condition that requires an in-person visit.
*Some conditions require an in-person visit, depending on your medical condition. See the list of exceptions below, where a video visit may not be right for you.
