Still unsure if Telemedicine is right for you? See some frequently asked questions about telemedicine below and learn more about how it can benefit your family.
What do I need for my online visit?
Internet access, a web camera and a microphone are necessary to use our online portal. You can use our telemed portal on your tablet, computer or smart phone! Whichever device you use, please ensure you are using Google Chrome or Firefox as your web browser. If you don't have internet access at home, you can use a local Wi-Fi in a quiet area.
How do I schedule a telemedicine appointment?
Create an account through our telemedicine portal and you will be sent to a dashboard where you can request to meet with a provider.
How much does Telemedicine cost?
Online doctor visits vary in price depending on your health insurance coverage. In most cases, insurance covers some of the cost leaving you a small copay. However, we've done all that we can to create the most affordable prices possible for your visit, whether or not you have insurance. We promise you will never pay more than $40 for an online consultation.
Our portal accepts all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover.
Can I schedule at any time? How long until I see the doctor?
We treat your online visit as if you were here in person. Therefore, we can accept and treat you 24 hours per day.
Why choose RB TeleCare 24 over others?
If you use any other Telemedicine service you run the risk of paying twice. If your symptoms are too serious you will be told to go to your nearest Urgent Care and you will pay for both visits.
With Gwinnett Urgent Care Telemedicine if your symptoms are too serious for treatment, whatever you paid for the online visit will be applied toward a visit in our office! Also, you will get to know our Medical Staff who take care of you.
Can I get a prescription?
Yes, we can electronically send in prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy. However, we do not guarantee prescriptions. Each patient is evaluated, and the appropriate course of treatment is provided by our clinicians.
Can anyone use Telemedicine?
Yes. From busy parents to college students to travelers who are in Florida for the weekend.

• You or your family are traveling in Florida and need out of state medical care
