Finally, the touring season has arrived, and you are probably packing and preparing to create some great memories. Along with your luggage, travel insurance, and credit cards, there’s another must-have item that should be with you—instant access to medical care while traveling in case of an emergency.

Virtual Doctor Appointments from Anywhere

Organizations like the International Society of Travel Medicine work with the CDC to provide medical assistance to travelers. CallonDoc allows travelers to get needed care wherever they are; no appointments or waiting rooms needed!

Pharmacies and Prescriptions

There used to be nothing worse than traveling and forgetting to renew or pack your prescription. Visiting a pharmacy to get a renewal can take time, become costly, or force you to go without needed medication.

That’s all a thing of the past with CallonDoc medical services. Don’t worry about finding a doctor; just have your phone, computer, or tablet handy! CallonDoc treats and prescribes everywhere in the U.S., making it a convenient and affordable choice.

Avoid These Common Medical Mishaps

There are many medical issues you can encounter unexpectedly when on vacation:

Prescription Refills

There’s nothing worse than forgetting or running out of necessary medication while on holiday. With a diverse variety of conditions, CallonDoc can help you refill daily prescriptions for things such as diabetes, asthma, hypertension, birth control, insomnia, mental health prescriptions, and more! Just answer a few medical questions and pick up your medication from any local pharmacy within hours of submitting your request so you never have to miss a dose!

Illness and Emergency Care

Illness and accidents can and do happen while on vacation, but they may not occur during clinic hours, and spending time sick on vacation or at expensive urgent care centers for medical emergencies isn’t ideal.

Your family can receive compassionate pediatric or adult medical care from CallonDoc at your hotel or anywhere else, at any time.


Unfamiliar surroundings or jet lag can cause insomnia. CallonDoc makes prescriptions available with a click so that you can rest and make the most of your vacation.

Motion Sickness

Motion sickness can ruin your time on the road or water. With CallonDoc, you can connect with a physician and get relief in a matter of hours!

UTIs and Birth Control

Urinary tract infections can make you miss the best parts of your vacation. Thankfully, all travelers suffering from UTI pain can get help from CallonDoc specialists, who will write and send prescriptions for fast pickup.

Missing birth control pills disrupt your cycle and hormonal balance. Just contact CallonDoc, and your prescription will be ready before you have to skip one day.

Skin Conditions

Acne and eczema flare-ups can occur at the most inconvenient times, including while you’re on vacation. CallonDoc’s board certified dermatologists treat you right away so that you can get back to your trip.

Other Common Conditions CallOnDoc Treats

If you’re on vacation and encounter another common medical problem that needs treatment, CallonDoc physicians are ready to consult with you on many pre-existing or acute medical conditions, including:

5 Reasons Why You Should Still Use Telemedicine After COVID-19

With the emergence of COVID-19 in 2020, more people utilize telemedicine than ever before. Once viewed just as an alternative to traditional doctor visits, telemedicine is quickly changing healthcare as we know it. 

Unlike usual doctor’s visits, talking to a doctor online won't give you instant access to tests like mammograms or lab work. However, the service does offer unique benefits not always achievable through an in-person doctor's appointment. CallonDoc also offers traditional in-person care by offering lab tests, diagnostic imaging and at-home tests, allowing patients to have full coverage on their healthcare needs.

With the COVID-19 pandemic gradually passing its peak, many people assume telehealth may be a thing of the past, but they’re sorely mistaken. With the pandemic allowing people to fully exploit the power of the internet and technology, the popularity of virtual doctor’s appointments is set to keep increasing. 
And if you’re still not convinced, here are five reasons why many still plan on using telemedicine after COVID-19.
