COVID-19 and Telehealth
As the medical community works together to ease the burden on our hospital system, Urgent Specialists is further expanding its telemedicine capabilities. In order to keep people out of the emergency rooms for non-life-threatening illness and to prevent exposure to Covid-19, we are encouraging people to use telemedicine. When patients have both fever and a cough, we advise them to use telemedicine before visiting any in-clinic location. Patients can visit their app store or visit www.urgentspecialists.com to access Urgent Specialists’ virtual platform from the convenience of their own home. This simple action will allow the medical staff to screen you and advise you on where to best seek treatment if necessary.
We also want to remind the community, particularly in times of heavy demand, the best place to get urgent medical help is in the urgent care setting or through primary doctors’ offices.
Urgent Specialists is the only full-service urgent care with access to on-call physician specialists in ENT, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology and more. During this time of uncertainty, we want to assure patients that we are open to assist with urgent medical needs.
