Patients are able to receive an online consultation and prescription transmitted to the pharmacy of their choice from their computer or Smartphone. The concept was conceived by Dr. Narendra K. Garg, a board-certified Internist who in his 30+ years of private practice noticed that the majority of patients waiting to see him or calling his office were seeking prescriptions for minor, easily diagnosable conditions such as UTI, URI or Upper respiratory infection, Sore throat, Sinusitis, Flu, Minor injuries, Acne, Cold sores, Allergies and many others.
Most of these conditions can be safely treated by video or online consultations.
