How Does RelyMD Work?

To create a new account, you’ll be asked a few simple questions (takes less than 5 minutes). On average, you’ll wait less than 10 minutes to see the doctor. And you’re not tied to your computer – we’ll call or text you when the doctor is available. Your online consultation will take 10-15 minutes. You’ll discuss your concerns and work with the doctor to come up with a treatment plan. Prescriptions can be sent directly to your pharmacy. Your RelyMD doctor will complete a set of care instructions that can be shared directly with your primary care physician, making sure your doctor is kept up to date.

How does the doctor diagnose my illness without seeing me in person?

Growing up, we become accustomed to the routine of seeing a doctor.  Traditionally, we think of a doctor’s visit as requiring a complete physical examination.  The truth is…it all depends on what is wrong that day!  For most urgent care complaints, what the doctor needs to know can be obtained through a history of your symptoms PLUS a focused exam. When you see a doctor with RelyMD, you will show the doctor exactly what hurts.  If your throat is sore, you’ll be asked to lean towards the camera with a flashlight.  If you twisted your ankle, you will show the doctor what it looks like, and the doctor will guide you through a more in depth exam that assesses tenderness, movement, sensation, and other important questions.  Based on this physical examination, your medical history, and description of your symptoms, more often than not, your illness can be treated through online urgent care.

In fact, according to a report from the Healthcare Performance Management Institute, 70 percent of physician visits and 40 percent of hospital ER visits can be handled by just a phone call!  By seeing and interacting with you in real-time, RelyMD doctors are able to diagnose and treat a wide range of ailments, including:

  • Sinus infection
  • Sore throat
  • Allergies
  • Cold & Flu
  • Ear infections
  • Bronchitis
  • Fever
  • Pink eye

  • And others..
