Telemedicine Overview

Telemedicine gives you 24/7 access to doctors in your state, even on holidays or while you're traveling.

You can consult with these doctors for common ailments such as a cold and even more severe ailments such as a rash or the flu without ever having to step foot in a doctor's office.

When medically appropriate, telemedicine doctors can also prescribe short-term, non-DEA controlled medications and have them sent to the pharmacy of your choice for added convenience. Telemedicine fits your schedule and makes getting back to your normal routine easy.


When should I use telemedicine?

While telemedicine can be used for a myriad of non-emergency ailments such as allergies, cold and flu, pink eye and urinary tract infections, telemedicine is not to be used for emergency situations. Should an emergency situation arise, call 911.


Can I use telemedicine while I'm on the go?

Absolutely! Since traveling can wreak havoc on your immune system, telemedicine is available while you're traveling within the United States.


Are prescriptions guaranteed?

No, prescriptions are not guaranteed. While DialCare doctors can write prescriptions and send them to the pharmacy of your choice, prescriptions are written at the discretion of your doctor. Also, keep in mind that doctors do not write prescriptions for DEA-controlled substances or other classes of medication such as mood-altering drugs, including antidepressants, antianxiety or lifestyle medications.
