Founded in 2002, Teladoc is a national network of physicians who use electronic health records, telephone consultations and online video consultations to diagnose, recommend treatment and write short-term, non-DEA-controlled prescriptions, when appropriate. Teladoc doctors have an average of 15 years of practice experience and are board-certified in internal medicine, pediatrics and family medicine. Consultations are available 24/7/365 with no fees and no time limit, allowing members to access quality care from wherever they are as opposed to more traditional and expensive settings like the doctor’s office, urgent care or emergency room.
From your home, office, hotel room, or vacation campsite, simply make a phone call, and in most cases, speak to a doctor in less than 30 minutes, with an average call back time of less than 10 minutes. When you call Teladoc, you will always speak to a doctor who lives and works in the United States and is licensed to practice medicine in your state. Teladoc is also the only telemedicine provider able to treat children from 0-17¹. It’s health care that fits in the palm of your hand.
