PhysicianOne Urgent Care Launches Virtual Visits
HARTFORD— PhysicianOne Urgent Care announced March 19 they are offering Virtual Visits to Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York residents. When you need urgent care, you want two things: to feel better and to receive professional care quickly. A PhysicianOne Urgent Care Virtual Visit gives patients the option to schedule their visit from home and skip the center and/or waiting room.
“We recognize the need for increased access to the right care, at the right time, especially in the current healthcare landscape. Many telehealth options being offered right now are on-demand, meaning there can be substantial online wait times to meet with a provider. With our platform, patients can schedule a time ahead — often times within the hour — to be evaluated. Initial feedback from our patients who have taken advantage of the Virtual Visits has been fantastic,” says Dr Jeannie Kenkare, Chief Medical Officer and cofounder of PhysicianOne Urgent Care.
To schedule a Virtual Visit, visit www.P1UC.com and simply click the ‘check in online’ option. During a Virtual Visit, a PhysicianOne Urgent Care provider will virtually assess patient concerns and symptoms, answer questions, and recommend the next steps the patient should take, while eliminating risk of exposure amidst the coronavirus concern. If an in-center visit is warranted following the Virtual Visit, either for testing or follow-up care, PhysicianOne Urgent Care has 23 locations across Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York to continue the visit.
PhysicianOne in Newtown is located at 266 South Main Street. Hours are Monday to Friday, 8 am to 8 pm; weekends and holidays, 9 am to 5 pm.
“Our Virtual Visit option gives the patient choices when it comes to healthcare access. The ability to meet with a provider online and receive followup care in one of our local centers is our chance to ‘reboot’ how traditional health care is delivered in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Our urgent care model continues to be a tremendous asset to the healthcare industry and to the patient population as we are able to quickly pivot, leverage technologies and provide solutions in ways that many other providers may not. We are offering answers and peace-of-mind to patients right away, without having to leave their home,” says Dr. Kenkare.
Experienced providers are on-site at all times. X-ray and lab services are available on-site. Insurance is accepted; self-pay options are also available. Parking is available at all locations.
