Need to See a Doctor? Here Are Four Virtual Options for Orlandoans
You don’t need to leave the house to get help.
With “social distancing” in full effect, you might wonder how you’re supposed to visit your physician. In 2020, there are now many ways to see a doctor (albeit, maybe not your doctor). Here are a few options:
eCare providers will diagnose your urgent health problem and recommend treatment designed specifically for you. If you need a prescription, they will call it in to your pharmacy. And they’ll follow up to make sure you’re doing well — it’s all part of their comprehensive, seamless care. You can easily access eCare through the AdventHealth app. Please visit the Google Play or Apple App store to download. If you need help signing up, you can contact technical support at 480-493-4819.
Kids, newborns to age 18, can see a doctor through live video chat 365 days a year.
