Sick Over the Holidays? Get Help Without Leaving Your Couch with NYU Langone’s Virtual Urgent Care
When you’re not feeling well and it isn’t easy to make it to the doctor, what do you do? NYU Langone Health’s Virtual Urgent Care service now offers patients in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania a real-time video visit with a world-class doctor in the palm of the hand.
Saving you a trip to the doctor or even leaving your couch, adults, as well as kids 12 and older can see an NYU Langone board-certified emergency medicine physician for minor medical concerns—right from the comfort of home, on any mobile device.
The service is ideal for non-emergency issues such as cold and flu, sore throat, pink eye, earache, rashes, and urinary tract infection, for both adults and children. Physicians are available for appointments Monday through Friday from 7 am to 11 pm, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 am to 8 pm.
These video visits are just like an office appointment. The doctor will review your child’s medical history and symptoms, develop a treatment plan, prescribe any needed medications and, if necessary, provide a referral to a pediatric specialist at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.
For children, parents must schedule the appointment and be present with their child during the visit. They will also need to have proxy access to their child’s NYU Langone Health MyChart account, which can be set up by calling 929-455-6409, or in person, at your child’s doctor’s office. You must be in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, or Pennsylvania to use the Virtual Urgent Care service.
So the next time your child has flu symptoms and doesn’t want to get out of bed to go to the doctor, they don’t have to—NYU Langone Health’s Virtual Urgent Care is here for you when you need it.
