If the pandemic has taught us anything it is that patients need access to convenient, safe, and quality health care no matter what the circumstances. That is why Hillsboro Urgent Care is proud to offer “Telehealth Visits,” giving our patients the option to consult with a licensed medical professional from the comfort of their own home.
Why take advantage of Telehealth Visits? We have 4 very good reasons.
- Telemedicine is available for Urgent Care AND COVID-19 evaluations!
Telehealth Visits with Hillsboro Urgent Care are available if you’re worried about a sore throat, itchy rash, constant sneezing, etc. And if you’re worried because you have similar symptoms to COVID (shaking with chills, fever, cough, difficulty breathing, muscle pain, headache, the new loss of taste or smell), we can help you there too.
Telehealth Visits have quickly become a critical tool in exercising social distancing and minimizing exposure. Our team of experts can walk you through the next steps of finding a designated testing location and setting the correct expectations, and how we can help when the testing is complete.
- Prescriptions? Follow-Up Care? No problem!
If you require medication that your provider agrees is necessary, our medical team can write that for you. We will even send it on your behalf to the pharmacy of your choice. Plus, if you require any follow-up care, Hillsboro Urgent Care has you covered there too. We can either schedule you for another Telehealth Visit or you can come into our Deerfield Beach location (unless you require a specialist).
- Our Telemedicine is secure for your protection
While it hardly qualifies as “clickbait,” it is important information to know for those who have concerns about the security of their Protected Health Information (or PHI). We accomplish this high level of security by using Doxy.me, the simple and convenient personalized video call rooms designed specifically for the medical industry. All data is encrypted, your sessions are anonymous, and none of your information is stored. Doxy.me adheres to all HIPAA, PIPEDA, and GDPR data privacy requirements.
Across the country, healthcare providers are using this platform to securely connect you with convenient and safe evaluations, and we are thrilled to join this worldwide team of connected medical professionals.
- Same-Day Appointments – Hassle-Free!
Not only can we virtually see you the same day (or the next day, if that is your preference), you will not have to download any software or create any sort of account. Simply use a mobile device or computer with a camera and microphone.
Every day, we have certified healthcare providers standing at the ready to care for you virtually. To schedule a Telehealth appointment, all you have to do is call us at 954-360-7000 to get in touch with our scheduling team, and they will ensure that you are scheduled with a same-day or next-day appointment. Be prepared to discuss the reason for your visit and complete a brief screening to help our team know what to expect when they join you for the call.
They will send you a personalized room link for Doxy.me to join our healthcare professional for the video call. Just click on that link and within moments you will be speaking directly to one of our most qualified professionals…all from the comfort of your own home in your own pajamas (if that is your preference).
Please keep in mind that some illnesses and injuries are more appropriately treated in person. You may be asked to visit our 220 SW Natura Avenue office in Deerfield Beach or directed to another healthcare provider or facility, when appropriate.
After everything is said and done, we want our patients to feel safe and comfortable. If that means seeking care from your own home or office, then we will do everything we can to make that happen. Whether you utilize the telemedicine option or walk-in for an appointment, just remember that the doctors at Hillsboro Urgent Care are dedicated to providing the highest degree of family health services using the latest in medical diagnostic equipment. No matter how it is delivered, we promise you quality care you can depend on.
