A Virtual Doctor Can Save You Time and Money


Why not consider a virtual doctor visit instead of enduring long wait times at a doctor’s office or hospital emergency room? With TGH Virtual Care, created through an agreement with Tampa General Hospital and American Well, it’s quick and convenient for you to have a live consultation with a physician without ever leaving the comfort of your couch.

The process for accessing a virtual doctor through TGH Virtual Care is easy. Simply download an app on your Apple or Android tablet or smartphone, or log in on your computer, and within minutes you can find yourself face to face with a board-certified physician from Online Care Group, American Well’s nationwide medical affiliate. Through a secure audio and video connection, the physician can discuss your symptoms and clinical information and send any needed prescriptions directly to your pharmacy so you can pick them up within hours. Also, your virtual doctor can suggest follow-up care options, if necessary.

There is a wide range of non-emergency conditions that can be addressed through TGH Virtual Care, including:

  • Sore throat
  • Sinus infection
  • Ear infection
  • Cough
  • Bronchitis
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Body aches and pains
