Most all of us have had those after-hours sicknesses that we weren't quite sure warranted an ER trip but we were still concerned about. Even when a sickness comes about during normal business hours, one can't guarantee a same day appointment with their usual doctor. In today's age, heading to the Internet for some self-diagnosis is easy, quick, and a lot less hassle than seeking a professional’s opinion. The downside to this is that it can lead to incorrect diagnosis and a false sense of thinking everything is okay when it may not be. Luckily, there is a convenient option that allows you to get a professional's opinion without breaking the bank or dealing with crowded medical facilities unless it's absolutely necessary.
Teladoc is an on demand group of board certified doctors standing by via phone and video chat waiting to help diagnosis you. Formed in 2002, they are the nation's first and largest telehealth provider. All doctors in their national network are U.S. board-certified family practitioners, PCPs, pediatricians and internists who use electronic health records to diagnose, treat, and write prescriptions, when necessary. They proudly meet National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) standards and are credentialed every three years. A whopping 92% of users have reported that Physicians of Teladoc have resolved their medical issue. What this means for you and your family is a trusted physician with experience and your best interest at heart.
It's important to note that Teladoc cannot help with emergency issues that require immediate attention. So use your best judgement wisely. For example, common things treated are sinus problems, respiratory infection, allergies, urinary tract infection, cold and flu symptoms and many other non-emergency illnesses. If you're ailing from a common condition, doctors can even prescribe you medications depending on your history. The typical wait time for a doctor is less than 10 minutes!
Teladoc even provides you with an electronic health record that you can use to pass along to your regular doctor at your next visit and more. You can access your record online any time and even if you choose not to proceed with Teladoc service – it is yours to keep. Your health record is kept safe and private and is HIPAA compliant.
