A trailblazing new program offers free online doctor visits for travel-restricted individuals and families
Dallas, Texas -- CallonDoc.com, an industry leading resource for online telemedicine services, has announced that it will be suspending its basic $39.99 primary care consultation fee as of Friday for any home-quarantined patients seeking telemedicine services including, prescription refills, for any medical needs unrelated to the coronavirus. Patients can waive this fee by using the promo code “GERMFREE”.
This unprecedented action will be a first for the telemedicine industry and coincides with expanding city, state, and federal government efforts to prevent the spread of the disease by encouraging the public to practice social distancing and those with suspected or confirmed cases to remain in self-quarantine until they have safely recovered and passed the point of risking transmission to others.
“At CallonDoc, we understand the mounting fear which is leaving so many people stranded in their homes, but we also know standard medical prescriptions for acute illnesses as well as chronic conditions, apart from COVID-19, still need to be filled,” said TJ Oshun, COO. “For that reason, we believe it is crucial for us to lead our industry and take extraordinary measures to provide medical resources as well as peace of mind to the public in this hour of need”.
It is strong actions like these which we are taking now, Oshun explained, that access to online doctor visits may be one of the key steps needed to help turn the tide on COVID-19.
“CallonDoc.com serves the everyday medical needs of patients with conditions ranging from simple cold symptoms and skin irritations to more complex diabetes and hypertension concerns, among dozens of other general health conditions including both men’s and women’s health, mental health and dermatology treatments.”
In that regard, we are working diligently with the community to “close the loop” in healthcare around the patient and physician relationship.
“Our team sees the importance of taking proactive steps in times like these by helping patients adhere to their therapies, but we also want to encourage preventative measures as well,” Oshun said. “With the rapidly intensifying COVID-19 pandemic, saving trips to the doctor’s office not only appear as common sense, but can play an even bigger role in helping to save lives in the larger community”
While there is no current vaccine or treatment for coronavirus, Oshun suggested that even those at low risk of developing serious complications should take a strong interest in doing their part to help others.
Oshun has a message for those who want to support CallonDoc and their efforts within the community.
“Anyone unaffected by the virus who wants to stand with us and support our cause can do so by using CallonDoc.com for their next doctor visit or prescription refill,” Oshun said. “All proceeds from paying customers not under quarantine for the coronavirus will go to expand our capacity to treat individuals in need.”
