Tampa, FL, July 20, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Jay J Garcia, MD Weight Loss & Wellness Center, one of Tampa Florida’s most successful wellness companies, is now diagnosing and treating common health issues through a direct-to-consumer telemedicine service providing direct access to qualified doctors from a mobile device or computer. The telemedicine service was launched on July 18, 2016 and allows patients to receive care from qualified medical providers using a secure video connection on a smartphone or computer making seeing a doctor more convenient than ever before. The service has been launched offering 1-on-1 online visits with Dr. Jay J Garcia and intends to add additional physicians in the weeks and months to come.
Jay J Garcia, MD Weight Loss & Wellness Center has grown to four brick-and-mortar centers in the Tampa Bay area for weight loss and wellness services, but this online option expands patients’ access for new services that will be available online only. The new online only service will diagnose and treat: cold and flu symptoms, bronchitis, allergies, poison ivy, pink eye, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, sinus problems, ear infections, rashes, fungal infections, and more.
The telemedicine platform used by Dr. Garcia is HIPAA-compliant and can also facilitate quick treatment visits, prescription refills, follow-up appointments, simple health questions, and work with your pharmacy of choice.
“As a company we have embraced technology for what it can do to help facilitate a better patient experience. We have used technology to help people reduce their hypertension and better control their blood sugars through nutrition and supplementation. Now we are expanding our use of technology to help people address their everyday health issues,” said Michael P Murphy, MBA, CEO of Everslim Centers and Vivaliti Wellness.
“Our customers have busy lives and they need convenience and quality,” Mr. Murphy said, “Our use of telemedicine gives patients more control so that they can see their doctor from wherever they are sitting, without taking time off of work or having to find child care to drive to an office. We can provide the same quality of care patients would receive in a medical center while being respectful of their time and other responsibilities in life.”
Any person in Florida over the age of 18 can use Dr Garcia’s eVisit online telemedicine using their mobile device, or internet browser (chrome or firefox) for treatment related to conditions like cold and flu symptoms, bronchitis, allergies, poison ivy, pink eye, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, sinus problems, ear infections, rashes, fungal infections. Currently, payments are by credit card only, but it is a reimbursable medical expense for HSA, HRA or FSA accounts. To learn more, visit www.garciaweightloss.com.
