CityMD doctor meeting with a patient using virtual urgent care services

Skipping the waiting room: top benefits of using virtual urgent care.

In an age where digital convenience is king, virtual urgent care is revolutionizing how we approach healthcare. This innovative service allows patients to connect with a physician and reach medical attention without leaving their homes and at any time of the day.

Let's dive into what virtual urgent care is, explore its many benefits and see how CityMD is leading the way with its virtual care services.

What is virtual urgent care?

Virtual urgent care provides medical consultations via video calls, allowing patients to speak directly with healthcare providers from the comfort of their own homes.

It's designed for non-life-threatening conditions like colds, allergies, skin irritations and more. In an emergency, our healthcare professionals are trained to guide you through the necessary steps and, if needed, help you transition to in-person care.


The benefits of virtual urgent care.

Virtual urgent care brings many benefits including convenience and efficiency in medical services.

Here's how patients and healthcare systems alike gain from this innovative approach.

Convenience and accessibility. The greatest benefit of virtual urgent care is its convenience. At CityMD our virtual urgent care is available 24/7. Patients can access care from anywhere, eliminating travel time and reducing the need to rearrange schedules. This is particularly beneficial for those with mobility issues, busy professionals and parents with young children.

Reduced exposure to illness. Virtual visits significantly reduce the risk of being exposed to other illnesses, a crucial aspect during flu season or a pandemic outbreak. They also provide a secure way to receive health advice without the potential risk of sitting in a crowded waiting room.

Cost efficiency. Virtual appointments can be more cost-effective than in-person visits. They eliminate travel costs and reduce the time spent away from work or other responsibilities, which can translate to financial savings.

Extended reach. This service extends the reach of medical care to rural or underserved areas where traditional healthcare might not be readily available. It also benefits individuals who might be reluctant to seek face-to-face consultations.

Streamlined follow-ups. Virtual visits can make managing chronic conditions or follow-up appointments easier. After your initial virtual visit, our healthcare professionals will guide you through the process of scheduling and conducting follow-up visits, making continuous care more consistent and less intrusive.
