Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Provider of innovative and convenient telehealth solutions, MeMD, is currently hosting a promotion for consumers suffering from seasonal allergies. March 20th officially marked the beginning of spring, and with the change of the seasons comes the start of spring allergies. MeMD is offering $5 off an online medical consultation with one of MeMD’s board certified medical providers, valid now through April 10.
High pollen counts have already been reported across the United States, and are continuing to rise. A recent study by the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), found that in the past year a total of 23.6 million Americans were diagnosed with hay fever, with up to 30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children reporting allergies.
“Allergies can be the precursor to many serious and even life-threatening conditions,” says Dr. John Shufeldt, Chief Executive Officer and Medical Director of MeMD. “Diagnosing and treating allergies is integral to maintaining health.”
Patients suffering from allergies can utilize MeMD’s allergy season promotion to speak with a medical provider online via a HIPAA-compliant web platform, with typical wait times of 30 minutes or less. MeMD providers are able to evaluate symptoms, diagnose allergies, and recommend an appropriate course of treatment. When medically appropriate, a MeMD provider can send an e-prescription to a patient’s local pharmacy for relief of allergy symptoms.
“MeMD is the perfect medium for the rapid evaluation and early treatment of allergies and allergy-related illnesses,” adds Shufeldt. With brief wait times to speak to a medical provider and a consultation co-pay less than most clinics and urgent cares, MeMD saves patients time and money when compared to a visit to a physician’s office.
The cost for a consultation with MeMD’s allergy season promotion is $44.95, which is a $5 discount from the $49.95 visit fee. To receive the MeMD allergy season promotional offer, visit the MeMD Secure Portal, request a visit, and enter the code SAPR14 when prompted.
