People who don’t want to deal with long waits at the doctor’s office or emergency room — especially if they’re on an important business trip or having a fun vacation — – can now easily, rapidly and securely connect with a physician via their iPhone or iPad thanks to InstaDOC, an innovative new no-cost app created by InstaDOC LLC.
With InstaDOC users fill out a brief medical form, submit a flat nominal fee, and schedule a convenient time – including the same day if they wish – to consult with a physician via video chat (e.g. FaceTime, Skype, Webx, and other popular and free services).
Physicians on the InstaDOC roster are Board Certified and licensed in over 8 states (Florida, North Carolina, New York, Illinois, Maryland, Rhode Island, California, and Indiana), and the platform is ideal for users who have questions or concerns regarding minor complications, such as those related to colds, flu, headaches, infections, rashes, minor injuries, and so on. What’s more, if requested to do so (or if they feel it is necessary), InstaDOC physicians can communicate with a user’s personal physician to coordinate safe, effective care.
Generally speaking, the total “face time” with physicians per video consultation is 15 minutes or less — which is a welcome change from the several-hour ordeal that typically results from a trip to the doctor’s office or emergency room. Furthermore, users save valuable time and money (gas, parking, tolls, etc.), while society-as-a-whole benefits because minor issues don’t end up costing the healthcare system a small fortune.
If non-narcotic prescription medication is required, immediately after the web consultation physicians phone the nearest pharmacy to have it filled (narcotics are not prescribed). All correspondence, including medical form transmission, is encrypted to ensure privacy and confidentiality.
“For many people, having to wait days or weeks for a doctor’s appointment, and then spending hours in an uncomfortable waiting room, can more insufferable and painful than their actual medical issue!” commented InstaDOC LLC. “That’s why InstaDOC is the ideal solution. The app connects users with physicians who can provide timely, practical advice that keeps minor issues from becoming major problems”.
