When to use virtual urgent
care and it's benefits

During a virtual consultation, a doctor can assist you with many of the same issues that you would normally have to wait days, weeks, or months to discuss with your primary care doctor.

So, when should you schedule a virtual urgent care consultation? When you have one of the following health concerns, you may want to schedule a virtual care visit

  1. Flare-ups of allergies and asthma
  2. Cough, cold, flu, or other sinus or respiratory infection
  3. Headache
  4. Aches and pains in the joints
  5. Vomiting and nausea
  6. Rash, infection, insect bite, or minor cut
  7. Throat discomfort
  8. Examining lab or test results
  9. Following up on an earlier visit

If you or your kid requires non-emergency treatment, our Virtual Urgent Care service provides a video visit with one of Akos MD doctors at a time that works for you. The visit is conducted through a secure connection, and your privacy is guaranteed.

We treat both adults and children. A kid’s visit must be scheduled on behalf of the child by the parent or legal guardian. Only if the parent or legal guardian is present during the visit can our providers treat your child.

Our providers hold medical licenses in United States. At the time of treatment, you must be physically located in the country.

You or your child can use Virtual Urgent Care to conduct the following:

  1. An Akos MD Virtual Urgent Care Doctor will examine you, diagnose you, and treat you.
  2. Treat minor medical issues such as a cough, sore throat, flu-like symptoms, rash, allergies, and pink eye.
  3. Get a post-visit summary that includes a treatment plan and any follow-up instructions, such as referrals for a specialist appointment or diagnostic imaging.
  4. Please have us alert your primary care physician so that they can contact you about your appointment.
  5. Prescriptions from your Virtual Urgent Care practitioner can be sent to the pharmacy of your choice.
  6. If you prefer to speak a language other than English, request interpretation service.

We treat the following conditions

Virtual Urgent Care is not meant to substitute regular doctor visits for normal healthcare needs such as an annual physical. This service is designed to supplement your or your child’s treatment when the doctor’s office is closed or when appointments for urgent needs are unavailable. It is not necessary to have a referral to see a Virtual Urgent Care provider.

The Advantages of Virtual Urgent Care Visits

A virtual visit provides the following significant advantages:

  1. Significantly shorter in-office wait times

Virtual visits can save you time by significantly lowering office wait times as well as drive time. When your appointment time arrives, you will be sent a link with instructions to join the video visit through text or email. You must click on the link, fill out the form, then join the session. Depending on your healthcare needs, the virtual visit normally lasts about 15 minutes.

  1. Access to Healthcare from Anywhere

Virtual or telehealth visits can be conducted from any location, including the patient’s home, hotel room, or office. All you’ll need is a few minutes in a calm spot where you can chat, see, and hear your provider on the video call.

Virtual visits are especially beneficial for patients who live in remote areas with limited access to healthcare services. Virtual visits enable convenient access to medical care in rural locations without requiring long distance travel.

  1. Ease of use

Convenience is important in today’s fast-paced society, and this is one of the fundamental advantages of a virtual health care visit. If you’re sick and don’t feel like leaving your house, a quick and easy video chat with your provider is quite enticing. When you are unable to take time off work or school to visit your provider for a short health consultation, virtual visits give a great deal of convenience.

  1. Safety

You never have to worry about having secure access to critical healthcare services with virtual urgent care visits, even during an epidemic or pandemic. We’ve all seen how swiftly and effectively virtual healthcare solutions have been used to enable people to access medical care without risk of exposure.

  1. Cost-effectiveness

Although most urgent care centers charge the same for a virtual visit and an in-person appointment, virtual visit options still provide some amount of affordability. You can save time and money by having access to healthcare from the comfort of your own home. Your video appointment, like regular in-office urgent care visits, is also covered by most insurance policies.

What We Offer:

  1. Caring, high-quality providers are on hand when you need them.
  2. Simple payment options include credit card, debit card, and HSA/FSA cards.
  3. Exclusive, high-quality experience
  4. There is web and mobile access accessible.
  5. Audio and video are crystal clear and high-quality.
  6. Your complete medical history is at your fingertips.
  7. The ability to send records to your main physician
  8. Printable reimbursement or deductible receipt
  9. If an in-person consultation is required, the move to a Akos Urgent Care site near you is made as simple as possible.
