While we might be practicing social distancing, it doesn’t mean that we won’t ever need medical attention. Illnesses and injuries crop up on a daily basis.

Fortunately, our team at AFC Urgent Care Indian Trail is proud to offer AFC TeleCare services so that you can get quality health care right in your own home!

How Safe Is It to Use Telemedicine for Health Care?

It’s very safe! Telemedicine through AFC TeleCare is conducted through a private and secure video connection that involves only you and a medical provider.

Unlike with common video conferencing platforms you might be reading about in the news, AFC TeleCare connections are protected, since you are sent a private link after you’ve scheduled a telemedicine appointment. You simply click the link to join a video chat with an AFC provider.

Benefits of Telemedicine for Patients

  • No transportation time or costs
  • No need to take time off of work
  • No child or elder care issues
  • On-demand options
  • Reduced risk of catching another illness
  • Less time in the waiting room

Can My Condition Be Treated With AFC TeleCare?

Many everyday medical conditions can be seen by a provider over telemedicine. While emergency medical symptoms such as shortness of breath and chest pain cannot be treated, non-emergency medical conditions typically can.

If you consult with a medical provider via AFC TeleCare and it’s determined that you need additional care, our team will help you determine your next steps for medical treatment.
