The days of scheduling an appointment with your Primary Care Provider for acute conditions like rashes, colds, sore throats, migraines, or big bites are not so commonplace anymore. For one thing, their schedules are packed, it’s challenging to get a same-day appointment, and there are other options.
While urgent care facilities serve a specific purpose in some situations, there are still long wait times and inconvenient hours to deal with. Urgent care facilities are not the ER, they are not open 24/7, but telemedicine via Protect my College Student’s (MD Live) is available 24/7, 365 days a year for non-life threatening conditions. Telemedicine is the way of the future.
An Answer for College Students
When college students are away, they often get sick, and their schedules are jam-packed with deadlines, classes, events, and a large amount of stress. So, what happens when your college student wakes up in the middle of the night with a head cold, tonsillitis, or some other ailment? If they have the 24/7 App, they can connect with a physician at any hour, any day of the week on their time.
You don’t have to worry about your college student, not getting the proper treatment because they couldn’t make it to an urgent care facility.
