10 Medical Conditions You Can Treat with an Evisit

Apr 3 2024

No time for the doctor? No problem! We have evisits to help treat your non-emergency conditions online.

If you’re like many people, sickness always seems to hit at the most inconvenient times. Whether it’s a cough before a big work presentation or contracting poison ivy just before summer vacation, finding the time to visit a doctor’s office can be a challenge.

Evisits allow you to consult with our trusted doctors online. These virtual appointments can replace traditional office visits by offering a convenient alternative, especially during busy times.

What are evisits?

Evisits, also known as virtual appointments or online doctor appointments, are a way for patients to consult with health care providers remotely. Through evisits, you can receive medical advice, diagnosis and treatment recommendations for non-emergency conditions without the need for an in-person visit. This service provides flexibility and convenience, particularly for minor health issues that don’t require physical examination.

10 medical conditions you can treat with an evisit

While not all medical conditions can be addressed through virtual appointments, many common ailments are suitable for evisits.

Some of these include:

  1. Sinus, cold and cough
  2. Back pain
  3. Diarrhea
  4. Urinary problems
  5. Heartburn
  6. Headache
  7. Poison ivy
  8. Vaginal issues
  9. Pinkeye
  10. Follow-ups for allergies, insomnia and hypothyroidism

How to schedule an evisit

To schedule an evisit, you must be an adult with an established relationship with one of our Mercy Health advanced practice or primary care providers. Additionally, you’ll need a MyChart account, as evisits are conducted through this platform.

Once logged into your MyChart account, navigate to the “submit an evisit questionnaire” button at the top of the page and follow the prompts to begin your virtual appointment. You’ll be asked to provide information about your symptoms and medical history, which will be reviewed by your primary care provider. After review, you’ll receive a message from your doctor with treatment recommendations – no video calls or chats required!

And if your health condition doesn’t qualify for an evisit, we offer in-person appointments as well. Use our find a doctor tool to locate a provider near you.
