Veteran ER Doctor Creates Telemedicine Company to Provide Affordable Health Services
As a 15-year veteran emergency medicine physician in the ever-growing city of Nashville, TN, Dr. Dorsha has seen what happens when people come to the hospital for non-life-threatening issues. "Unfortunately for some, the ER is the only place they can receive their care but ER's are often overcrowded with extended wait times. myURGENCYMD provides patients with the ability to see a doctor from the comforts of home, bypassing doctor's offices and waiting rooms and without the large hospital bill," said Dr. Dorsha.
For those without health insurance, telemedicine is a good option until they can obtain coverage and for those with insurance, telemedicine is a great supplemental service for companies that don't offer it as part of their coverage. Anyone can become a member and telemedicine allows anyone with smart phone access to non-emergency health services for a total cost of $24.95 a month or less than $300 a year. Another perk is one membership can be utilized by a household of up to seven people. The service is unlimited so members can schedule appointments as needed. It has no co-pays or additional fees and has a Spanish experience for those who need it.
In late 2020, myURGENCYMD created an initiative that specifically targets HBCUs and other colleges and universities that want to be able to provide health services to students around the clock. Tennessee State University, in Nashville, Tennessee, was the first to partner with the organization and provides myURGENCYMD's services to its more than 7,000 students free of charge.
myURGENCYMD also provides mental health services. A myURGENCYMD membership includes unlimited access to a Master's Level Therapist and members also have a 100% guaranteed follow-up with their original therapist.
