Yes, it’s back to school time again… a time of year that kids dread, and parents deplore. Because if it’s one thing that parents have learned over the years is that with the new school year and classmates comes a host of sniffles, sore throats, ear infections, head lice, and more. You know it’s only a matter of time before you’ll need to miss work and test your patience in a packed pediatrician’s office. Or even worse, pick up your child’s symptoms as well, requiring you to seek medical attention.
Fortunately, we have the answer—MDLIVE!
With MDLIVE, you can talk to a board-certified doctor or pediatrician 24/7 via phone or video, from wherever you are, in an average of less than 10 minutes. And if your physician determines you need a prescription, it can be quickly sent electronically to the nearest pharmacy. So if a fever spikes at 7:00pm, your child could have a diagnosis and prescription in hand before bedtime, so he or she can get back to school faster!
Crash course on virtual care…
Virtual care can be used to treat a whole lot more than just bumps and bruises. For example, the list of symptoms treated by MDLIVE includes: acne, allergies, cold/flu, constipation, cough, diarrhea, ear problems, fever, headache, insect bites, nausea/vomiting, pink eye, rash, respiratory problems, sore throats, urinary problems/UTI, vaginitis, and more! Of course, for anything more serious, you should call 911 and go straight to the nearest emergency room for the highly skilled care you need.
