Non-Emergency Urgent Care

Non-emergency urgent care addresses health concerns that require immediate medical support but are not life-threatening. This includes a variety of conditions, such as respiratory issues, infections, allergies, and other ailments that require timely medical intervention.

While these health issues may not be emergencies, they still require the expertise and supervision of a healthcare professional as soon as possible. 

Fortunately, not all health concerns require a physical in-person visit to an urgent care center. Many non-emergency health issues can be efficiently managed through remote consultations with a qualified healthcare provider.

At Tropical Telemedicine, we provide non-emergency urgent care services for people needing medical assistance from home. Through our virtual consultations, you can access fast and convenient medical care. This means you can receive timely assessments and treatment without enduring long waiting lines or leaving your house.

Our non-emergency urgent care service is designed to address a variety of health conditions safely and effectively, all without the need for an in-person visit. 

Infections

Infections can result from viruses, bacteria, or other pathogens and can occur in various parts of the body. They can lead to different symptoms and varying levels of discomfort. Fortunately, most infections can be effectively treated with timely medical care. 

However, some infections are contagious and require you to stay home to prevent spreading them. At Tropical Telemedicine, we offer virtual consultations to treat various types of infections and related diseases from the comfort of your home.

  • Upper respiratory infections: Infections in the upper respiratory tract can be caused by a variety of pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, and in rare instances, fungi. Our healthcare providers assess your symptoms through virtual consultations and prescribe treatment options based on the type of infection.
  • COVID-19 & influenza: Contagious viral respiratory diseases, such as COVID-19 and influenza, can cause fever, cough, and fatigue. Our non-emergency urgent care service is particularly useful for managing these conditions. We provide treatment and guidance on symptom management while you self-isolate and rest at home to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs): UTIs are bacterial infections that affect the urinary tract. They can cause common symptoms, such as frequent urination, burning during urination, and pelvic discomfort. We can provide expert medical care to help you manage and treat your UTI symptoms.

If not treated promptly, they can lead to ear pain, discomfort, and hearing problems.

Respiratory Conditions

Respiratory conditions can range from chronic issues like asthma to infections affecting various parts of your respiratory system. These conditions are common and can affect people of all ages. 

While some respiratory issues may require an in-person visit to a healthcare provider, most of them can be managed and treated with medications. We provide virtual consultations to assess your respiratory symptoms and provide individualized treatments for your situation.

  • Allergies: Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to allergens like pollen, pet dander, or dust mites. We offer virtual assessments, prescriptions, and lifestyle management plans to help manage allergy symptoms that do not require emergency medical care. 
  • Asthma: Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition caused by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to breathing difficulties and wheezing. We provide prescription refills for inhalers and steroids, to effectively manage asthma symptoms.
  • Bronchitis: Bronchitis involves inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from the lungs. It is often caused by viral infections and can present symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, fever, and a runny nose. We prescribe medications such as cough syrups, steroids, and inhalers to alleviate symptoms and promote recovery.
  • Pneumonia: Pneumonia is a lung infection that can have various causes, including bacteria. Symptoms may include prolonged cough, discomfort in the chest, shortness of breath, and fever. We can order chest X-rays and prescribe antibiotics if bacterial pneumonia is suspected.
  • Bacterial Sinus infections: Sinus infections caused by bacteria often persist for 7-10 days or more. It causes symptoms such as congestion, discolored nasal drainage (pus), facial pain and pressure, and sometimes fever. Unlike viral infections, bacterial sinus infections may require antibiotics for treatment.
  • Common Colds: Common colds are viral and can cause a variety of symptoms like cough, congestion, sore throat, and more. These often start to improve within a week or so and just require prescriptions for the symptoms.

Skin Conditions
