A virtual visit is a live, online consultation with a licensed doctor. Patients can see a doctor from a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone saving them travel time and the hassle of sitting in a waiting room. With virtual visits patients receive immediate answers to their healthcare needs, better outcomes and faster access to doctors and specialists.
When will I need a Virtual Visit?
The traditional medical appointment is not “convenient” for everybody. Most patients dislike long waits at the doctor’s office. Virtual visits are ideal for patients with busy schedules, parents, or simply anyone who needs to treat a non-life-threatening condition but cannot travel to the doctor’s office.
The cost for a Virtual Visit varies between individual doctors. Each physician determines their own rate and availablity per Virtual Visit. Each Virtual Visit is set for a default time limit of 15 minutes per session. Prices can start as low as $10 for 15 minutes and upward depending on the physician.
