Getting healthcare treatment can be a real challenge, especially if you don’t have the time or funds to head to the doctor’s office.
While this is an unfortunate reality of the American healthcare system, not all is lost.
There are several alternatives to traditional healthcare, one of them being practices like GoodMDs.
GoodMDs is different than your normal doctor’s office because they do everything online. So, instead of you needing to take time off work to go to the doctor’s office, you can simply sign up for an appointment, fill out a questionnaire and receive the help you need.
Keep in mind this doesn’t pertain to all health issues. For example, a more serious diagnosis will require an in-person visit or seeing a specialist. However, if you suspect you may have a sinus infection or want help with a UTI, GoodMDs can help. Here are a few things you may not know about GoodMDs.
They offer online treatment plans for STIs
Whether you’re dealing with bacterial vaginosis, genital herpes or something else, GoodMDs can help you get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan for an STI. While it can feel embarrassing to have to get treatment for an STI, these are incredibly common. And the sooner you get help, the less likely it is you’ll have long-term side effects from the infection.
All the doctors are board-certified
Plenty of people wonder if they will see a real, board-certified doctor for an online or telehealth doctor’s appointment. With GoodMDs, you can put that worry to rest. All our doctors are board-certified and undergo rigorous background checks so we can ensure their validity. With GoodMDs, you’ll know you’re working with a true professional that wants to help you feel better.
They can request additional lab tests
If you’ve finished your assessment and it looks like you need additional testing, the doctors at GoodMDs can request additional lab tests for you. This is especially important if you have an infection that requires more than just a questionnaire or a conversation. For example, you may need testing to confirm a suspected case of asthma, UTI, type 2 diabetes, syphilis and more. These lab tests will ensure you get the treatment you need.
You don’t need insurance to use GoodMDs
Since GoodMDs doesn’t require insurance, a medical professional can see practically anyone for an acute health issue. That said, if you have medical insurance, you can use it to pay for lab tests, prescriptions and imaging services. This gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to get a potential diagnosis and additional testing to identify the issue at hand and treat it effectively.
We are available 24/7
Do you work the night shift and need to see a doctor ASAP? No problem. We have doctors available 24/7 to ensure you get the care you’re looking for.
