Can a Nebraska online doctor diagnose you?
Yes, an online doctor can diagnose you if you are experiencing a health condition that does not require lab tests or imaging to diagnose. If your condition is communicable and can be visually confirmed through a virtual visit, then your doctor will be able to diagnose you. Some conditions cannot be diagnosed without extensive testing and in-person physical examinations. In that situation, an online doctor would not be able to diagnose you; however, they can refer you to a specialist in your area.
Can a Nebraska online doctor prescribe medication?
Yes, a Nebraska online doctor can prescribe medication. During Nebraska telehealth appointments, doctors will go through a thorough consultation to determine if medication is needed. If they conclude that it is necessary, they will electronically send the prescription to a patient’s local pharmacy for pick up.
Can a Nebraska online doctor prescribe antibiotics?
Yes, a Nebraska online doctor can prescribe antibiotics. Nebraska telemedicine allows antibiotics to be prescribed online by a licensed physician after a medical evaluation. This is common with patients who have bacterial infections.
Some examples of bacterial infections that can be treated with antibiotics are:
– Sinus infections
– Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
– Sore throat, strep throat, and tonsillitis
– Ear infections
Is an online doctor consultation helpful?
Yes, online doctor consultations are helpful. Our virtual appointments are conducted by professional and licensed doctors, who have an average of 15 years of clinical experience and have trained at a top 50 U.S. medical school. Through a process of questions and visual indications, they will be able to assess what next steps you need to take. These may include prescribing a necessary medication, ordering tests to get more information, or referring you to a specialist in your area.
Telehealth is not appropriate for serious conditions that require immediate attention or emergency care. If you experience any life-threatening issues, call 911 or go to an emergency room immediately.
