MUSC virtual care does not require downloading an app and is a convenient way to receive high quality care from MUSC providers from any laptop or mobile device. The service is simple to use for approximately 80 conditions including sinusitis, pink eye, urinary tract infections, heartburn and flu. Patients answer a few questions about their symptoms, adding photos if needed and the provider will diagnose and give a treatment plan. If the provider needs to see the patient, a video option is also included. Patients can also chat with the provider. If the patient needs a prescription, it will be called in to the pharmacy of their choice for pick-up.

Virtual care visits are not a substitute for emergency situations and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get care now with MUSC Virtual Care
