All About Virtual Urgent Care

Everyone has made an effort to stay at home more these days due to ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. When you need immediate care for an acute medical issue that is not life-threatening, virtual urgent care can continue to keep you safe from risk of infection while providing you with the medical access you need.

However, there are plenty of other reasons why virtual urgent care could be the right option for you and your family this fall. The care team at Living Water Community Health and Wellness Clinic provides telemedicine services — including comprehensive virtual urgent care support. Here’s what you need to know about it.

Effective technological solutions in health care

For every modern problem, like the COVID-19 pandemic, there's a modern solution. Today's technology allows us to provide the same high standard of care to our patients remotely that we're able to do with an office visit.

Telemedicine allows you to effectively seek treatment for a wide range of health issues, whether they’re chronic, ongoing concerns or acute, urgent medical problems.

Our easy-to-use video conferencing software lets you communicate in real time with your Living Water Clinic provider. You don't need to worry about privacy, either — your virtual care visit is completely covered under HIPAA laws, and only authorized users can access any data you share.

You can send us images or videos of concerning symptoms through our software, and we can discuss them immediately. If you need a prescription, we can send one electronically to your pharmacy. You can complete your entire treatment session without having to leave your home.

When medical issues are urgent

With some medical concerns, you can schedule an appointment — in person or virtual  — to see a doctor in a few days. When you need urgent care, however, you don’t want to wait. If you have pressing health concerns, urgent care allows you to talk to a doctor or nurse right away, instead of dealing with transportation and waiting room lines!

When you have an acute medical issue that is not life-threatening — from sports injuries to cold and flu symptoms to persistent headaches — virtual urgent care gets you the medical attention you need from the comfort, safety, and convenience of your own home.

For life-threatening concerns, always seek immediate emergency care by calling 911.

When you need urgent care, know that you can reach out to the team at Living Water Clinic right away. You can call our compassionate, helpful team of family medicine experts at one of our three locations in Porterville, Lindsay, and Visalia, California. To schedule a virtual appointment, use our online tool.
