If you are having trouble getting in to see your existing doctor, and have a non-emergency medical issue, such as cold and flu symptoms, bronchitis, sinus problems, ear infections, etc., you can log in to your Teladoc account or call 1- 800-Teladoc to request a phone or online video consult with a Teladoc doctor. The average doctor call-back time is 16 minutes.

Teladoc doctors are board-certified in internal medicine, pediatrics, and family medicine. They have their own medical practice and have incorporated telehealth or telemedicine into their practice because they see it as a way to give more affordable, more convenient access to quality care.

Teladoc is available 24/7, so whether you are vacationing, traveling on business, or it's the middle of the night, Teladoc is there. And, the maximum fee is only $40, so you visit is covered by your copay.
