Hurricane Treatment Guide

By September 9, 2017Hurricane Relief

Our thoughts continue to be with all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma.

From now through the end of September 2017, DoctorsTelemed physicians are delivering free telehealth consults to hurricane victims in Texas and Florida, adding needed clinical capacity in these states to make sure those impacted by the hurricane get the care they need. We are also setting up free accounts for physicians whose physical practices have been affected by the hurricane and would like to see patients remotely. For more information, please email here.

Below is a list of services our doctors can treat, along with conditions that may require a visit to the ER.

  • What we can treat:
    • Asthma
    • Cold & Flu
    • Congestion
    • Coughing
    • Medication refills
    • Sore throats
    • Vomiting & Diarrhea
    • Infections following water exposure
    • Other non-emergency issues
  • When to go to the ER
    • You can’t catch your breath
    • Bleeding wounds
    • Broken bones or dislocations
    • Chest pain
    • Loss of consciousness

If you are experiencing a crisis or emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. You can also access the free, 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1–800–273–8255.
