Convenient Online Doctor Visits – Now Available
Getting timely and effective medical care has never been easier!
At United Medical, we are now offering telehealth appointments. These online visits with your healthcare provider allow you to discuss a medical concern in real time, while remaining in the comfort and safety of your home or other preferred location. All you need is an internet-connected device with a working camera and microphone, such as a cellphone or laptop.
How to Get Started
We encourage you to call your United Medical provider and ask about scheduling a telehealth visit. Once your visit is scheduled, your provider’s office will confirm your information and provide instructions on how to connect with your provider at your scheduled appointment time.
Tips for a Helpful Telehealth Visit
To get ready for your online appointment, you should make sure your internet connection is strong and the device you are using has a functioning mic and camera. At the day and time of your appointment, choose a quiet, private, and comfortable spot within your home for the visit. Follow the link or login prior to the scheduled time to ensure things go smoothly. Have any questions you don’t want to forget written down and handy, so you can consult these notes during the video call. Keep a list of all your current medications on hand as well.

Benefits of Telehealth
Being able to speak with and see your healthcare provider when you need to can make all the difference in the world. It allows you to stop suffering with symptoms and get the treatment you need, right away. Among the biggest benefits of these real-time video appointments with your healthcare provider are:
- Comfort and convenience. You get to remain in a comfortable setting – usually your home or work, or wherever is convenient for you. Online doctor visits eliminate the cost and hassle of travel, parking, and sitting in waiting rooms. There is also no need to arrange for child care.
- Reduces the spread of contagious diseases, including COVID-19. By remaining in the comfort of your home or other preferred location during your telehealth visit, you avoid mingling in an environment where others who are sick and possibly contagious are.
- It’s incredibly efficient. When you remove all the time it takes to arrange for and travel to a doctor’s appointment, you may be surprised at how little time is required to get to the heart of your healthcare needs – and receive the consult, prescription, or other care you need, all in a single online visit.
