Our virtual telemedicine visits can provide you with immediate care when it matters most.
With everything going on right now, we know that the last thing you want to worry about is an urgent health matter. Of course, if your child twisted their ankle playing outside or you woke up with a sore throat you may be looking to get urgent care. In these instances, it’s important to know that our San Antonio, TX, family physician Dr. Dan Hoyumpa provides urgent care telemedicine at this time.
Dr. Hoyumpa and his team treat patients of all ages and provide individualized care to both children and adults. We prevent, diagnose, treat, and manage both acute and chronic conditions. Telemedicine visits allow our medical team to be able to provide you with fast, urgent care and treatment right here in San Antonio, TX, without ever having to leave the house (which we know is a major benefit and comfort right now). For those with busy schedules, this also means being able to see a doctor when it best suits them, whether it’s a day, night, or weekend.
So, what urgent health concerns warrant a televisit?
A good rule of thumb is if the illness or injury isn’t serious or life-threatening then a telemedicine visit with us will probably be the best first step to getting the care that you or your child need. During this virtual doctor’s appointment, we can also determine whether you need to take any additional steps, including coming into our office for certain treatments or diagnostic testing or to see a specialist.
Some examples of the type of urgent health concerns we diagnose and treat through a simple telemedicine visit include,
- Accidents and minor injuries such as sprains and strains
- Lacerations and minor cuts and wounds
- Pinkeye or other eye infections
- Cold and flu
- Rashes and skin infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Sore throat
- Respiratory infections
- Diarrhea and vomiting
We can provide recommendations for at-home care and treatment, as well as fill any necessary prescriptions you might need. Televisits also allow us to check in with our patients who are dealing with chronic conditions to make sure that their current treatment plan is effective. If you are living with a chronic health problem such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease, it’s important to have a doctor that can provide urgent medical care when you’re noticing new or worsening symptoms. Sometimes a simple televisit can help us determine that you need a new medication or that we need to change up your current treatment plan.
