Virtual Urgent Care: Timely Medical Support Wherever You Are
Welcome to PRIMO Health Partners, your dedicated partner in health and wellness. We understand that your healthcare needs can arise at any moment, which is why we’re excited to introduce our virtual urgent care services. Designed to provide immediate and effective healthcare right at your fingertips, our virtual urgent care services offer secure and professional medical attention from the comfort of your home.
Virtual vs In-Person Appointments
Traditional in-person appointments require travel, waiting room time, and may expose patients to various illnesses. On the other hand, virtual appointments allow you to consult with healthcare professionals through secure online video calls. This model delivers many benefits, including convenience, accessibility, and lower risk of exposure to illnesses.
Although some situations may still require in-person consultation, many urgent but non-life-threatening conditions can be addressed efficiently and effectively through virtual care. We always prioritize your health and safety, providing guidance on when to opt for in-person care.
What to Expect from Virtual Care
With PRIMO Health Partners, you can expect a seamless virtual care experience. Here’s how it works:
Simply book your appointment online by contacting us online. Choose a time that suits your schedule, and we’ll confirm the appointment details.
At the appointment time, connect with our healthcare professionals via a secure video link. Discuss your symptoms, medical history, and any health concerns just like you would during an in-person visit.
Diagnosis & Treatment Plan
Based on your consultation, our healthcare provider will diagnose your condition and recommend a personalized treatment plan. This may include prescriptions, which will be sent to your preferred pharmacy.
We’ll schedule any necessary follow-up appointments and provide resources for managing your health.
How to Prepare for a Virtual Care Visit
Make sure you have a reliable internet connection and a device with a camera and microphone. Test the technology before the appointment.
Choose a quiet, private location for your appointment. Make sure you have good lighting so the provider can see you clearly.
Have your medical history, symptoms, medications, and any other relevant information ready to share with your healthcare provider.
Factors to Determine Whether Virtual Urgent Care is Right For You
Severity of Symptoms
If your symptoms are severe or life-threatening, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Virtual urgent care is ideal for non-emergency situations, such as minor injuries, cold and flu symptoms, allergies, and other similar conditions.
Location and Accessibility
If you live in a remote location or have difficulties reaching a medical facility due to mobility or transportation issues, virtual urgent care is an excellent choice.
Comfort with Technology
If you’re comfortable using technology and value the convenience it offers, you’re likely to find virtual care beneficial.
