Consult us through the Medhero™ app to discuss symptoms. If indicated, a chest X-ray could be ordered, non emergently, at a local imaging center, and can usually be taken same day walk in. Results would come to you through the app. An e-prescription would be ordered if appropriate.
For pneumonia or acute bronchitis not requiring hospitalization, a Housecall appointment or Medhero™ office appointment could be arranged to provide steroids, breathing treatments, and IV antibiotics if appropriate. Final results can be sent to your primary care provider.
