Am I a Candidate for Telemedicine?
Telemedicine services are ideal for patients who have common, non-emergent health concerns, such as:
- Sore throat
- Nasal congestion or runny nose
- Sinus pain or pressure
- Ear pain
- Allergy symptoms
- Mild rashes or burns
- Nausea or vomiting
- Mild symptoms related to a previously diagnosed medical condition
Your doctor will determine if a virtual or in-person appointment is appropriate. If a virtual visit is suggested, your physician can virtually send any necessary prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy and provide expert medical advice to help you achieve your best health during these unique times.
In the event that your symptoms require in-person treatment or follow-up care at a Tufts Medical Center Community Care location, you can be assured that we’ve taken every possible precaution to keep our medical staff and patients safe, including frequent sanitization and appointment staggering. Prior to your visit, our team will conduct symptom screening and registration over the phone. You must also wear a mask to your appointment and be mindful of social distancing guidelines.
