To make sure that our community is not exposed by going to a doctor or sitting in a clinic waiting room, we have closed our physical Doctors On Call offices during this emergency.
But, of course, we ARE available, as always...with a video-visit!
Here is our information release:
Doctors On Call is offering video-visit telemedicine to patients by phone or video from 8 a.m. till 9 p.m. daily, 7 days a week, the Maui urgent care clinic announced. They are known as the pioneer of urgent care and now telemedicine in Hawaii.
Dr. Norman Estin, co-founder and Medical Director of Doctors On Call said, between video-visits, “This is a great chance for us to take care of patients quickly and efficiently without their having to come out of their home and into an doctors office or clinic waiting room."
Physicians can offer advice, diagnose, treat, and call in prescriptions. Estimates are that 75-80% of medical care can be done on-line, from the comfort of a home, office, or any smartphone.
Specific and easy-to-follow instructions for any patient regardless of their insurance plan is on their website, DocMaui.com. All local insurances cover the telemedicine video-visits, and the self-pay cost is only $49.
"We are actually able to offer telemedicine to the entire state, but of course our primary focus is getting easy online care to all Maui residents," said Estin. "We are working to have it all covered by the other insurance carriers as well, like Medicare and hopefully Kaiser."
