Fortunately, UrgentMed offers this service through telemedicine appointments, enabling you to receive necessary medications without the inconvenience of traveling to a healthcare facility.

Please note that there may be specific limitations on prescriptions and refills obtained through telemedicine appointments. However, a virtual urgent care provider can prescribe medications as part of your treatment plan, ensuring that you receive the necessary care without unnecessary delays.
