Let’s face it, illness and injury tend to strike when you least expect it. It’s not uncommon to get sick over the weekend or a holiday when your regular doctor’s office is probably closed.

Thanks to Virtual Urgent Care at Tower Health, you no longer have to wait it out — or wonder what to do. Instead, you can connect with a Tower Health Urgent Care provider via your desktop or mobile device, at any time, from anywhere.

The value of virtual care

Like traditional urgent care, virtual urgent care is a good option for people who want to see a doctor in 10 minutes or less. But virtual urgent care offers several additional advantages:

  • You can see a provider when it’s most convenient for you
  • You don’t have to drive or find transportation
  • You don’t have to wait in line for care
  • You won’t come into contact with other sick people

Symptoms and Conditions We Treat

Virtual urgent care is suitable for minor illnesses and injuries that don’t require a physical exam. These include:

  • Allergies
  • Bronchitis
  • COVID-19-related concerns
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Pink eye
  • Sinus problems
  • Skin problems, such as minor cuts, burns, rashes, or insect bites
  • Urinary tract infections

Virtual urgent care is not appropriate for life-threatening symptoms. If you need emergency care, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
