AUSTIN, Texas - Reliant Immune Diagnostics announced today it is offering one free telemedicine visit using its MDBox app in response to the coronavirus, COVID-19, outbreak caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
MDBox allows patients to video chat with a healthcare provider on their phone from the comfort of their home if they start feeling sick. The free visit offer is applicable for residents of Illinois, Iowa, Texas, and Wisconsin, where MDBox is currently available, through April 30, 2020. As confirmed cases in the United States continue to increase, traditional healthcare facilities may become overwhelmed. Telemedicine such as www.MDBox.com, is an effective alternative to help manage patients during the current coronavirus outbreak.
Henry Legere, MD, CEO and Founder of Reliant Immune Diagnostics said, "We created MDBox as a quick and easy way for someone to visit with a medical professional without the cost and time commitment that would come from going to an ER or urgent care center. We know many people have questions about the virus and it's incredibly important that our community has an extra layer of protection during this outbreak, and we see MDBox as that protection."
The MDBox telemedicine app was developed by Reliant Immune Diagnostics to provide cost-effective quality symptom-specific consumer-driven healthcare and wellness to everyone.
MDBox Texas Medical Officer, Ann Black, MD, states, "We treat our telemedicine patients with the same compassion and quality of care as we do for regular office patients. We strive for professional excellence and medical expertise in all of our virtual medicine encounters."
