We have all been there before! You have taken time off work to commute to the doctor’s office. You have arrived on time only to sit in the waiting room among other sick patients. If you are lucky, your name will be called in about 15 minutes, but most likely you will end up waiting up to an hour only to see the doctor for about 10 minutes.
Then, you might need to take some more time off work and go back to see the doctor to get your results after which you may need to go to the pharmacy to pick-up your prescription.
It is a time-consuming experience that most of us would rather avoid.
At our virtual health clinic, we can help you to connect with a Healthcare Provider. If your online doctor deems it to be safe and appropriate, your online prescription would be sent to your pharmacy of choice for convenient pick-up, or you can enjoy free medication delivery right to your home. You can even opt-in to have your medication delivered right to your home.
Safely and securely consult with our
healthcare providers about your health concern.
Be assessed, diagnosed, and treated
all in one place, virtually.
During your consultation, our healthcare providers can diagnose your condition and write any required prescriptions to be sent to your preferred pharmacy. Forms will be filled out at the discretion of the provider and emailed to you or made available for download from your free Virtual Health Clinic account.
