22 Jul Weighing your options for cold and flu

According to Teladoc Chief Medical Officer, Henry DePhillips, “Doctor’s offices and urgent care centers are often ground zero for flu contagion. Thanks to the rise of telehealth, many people, through their benefits programs, have 24/7 access to board certified and licensed physicians without leaving your home.”

So how do you decide whether you should go to the doctor, or whether Teladoc is the right answer? Here are a few pointers on when your symptoms are likely appropriate for telemedicine, and when you should schedule time with your doctor or urgent care.
