How Does CallonDoc Work?
CallonDoc is a telehealth service that's primary focus is on getting patients their prescriptions faster and more easily than the average doctor's appointment procedure. There isn't any long appointment process with CallonDoc. You'll just tell the platform what your symptoms or medical condition are, and a CallonDoc doctor will send the necessary prescriptions out. Getting medications with CallonDoc is very straightforward. Here's how it works:
Step 1: Start by choosing the medical condition you are seeking medical treatment for. Answer a few follow up questions about yourself, your medical history, and symptoms.
Step 2: A medical professional will review your request, diagnose, and send the necessary prescription to your local pharmacy. This will happen within 2 hours of submitting your request, as long as the request occurs during their business hours.
Step 3: Pick up your prescriptions at the pharmacy.
What Does CallonDoc Treat?
CallonDoc primary care physicians are able to treat a wide variety of medical conditions from basic issues like the common cold, flu, or ear infections to more severe conditions like chronic conditions, diabetes, asthma, and hypertension. Here’s a partial list of the medical conditions that are treatable by CallonDoc doctors:
- High cholesterol
- Urinary tract infection
- Birth control
- Strep throat
- Pain relief
It is important to note, though, that CallonDoc cannot treat all medical conditions. In particular, telehealth services are not appropriate for emergency medical situations. Some of the situations that CallonDoc will not treat include:
- Severe mental illness
- Suicidal thoughts or actions
- Homicidal thoughts or actions
Additionally, CallonDoc is a more convenient option for patients who just want a prescription refill and don’t want to wait in a doctor’s office or for an appointment to open up. CallonDoc can provide you with a refill for just about any medication (as long as you are currently taking that medication or it has been filled within the last 3 months). If your medication doesn’t qualify for a refill, you can submit a request with CallonDoc to get a new prescription sent to your pharmacy. Antifungal and antibiotic medications require a new prescription regardless of previous usage.
Another convenient feature CallonDoc boasts of is direct mailing medications. This service partners with brick-and-mortar and online pharmacies that will mail the medication directly to you. CallonDoc physicians cannot prescribe controlled substances and other potentially harmful medications, including Ambien, Clonidine, Gabapentin, muscle relaxers, narcotics, and the like.
How Much Does CallonDoc Cost?
Generally, most conditions cost $39.99 for an online consultation and $49.99 for a phone consultation. That's lower than many traditional co-pays. Other conditions like dental infections, type 2 diabetes, and mycoplasma cost $50. If you are requesting a test for multiple sexually-transmitted diseases, this can cost $59.99.
CallonDoc can also provide patients with several lab tests, including kidney health testing, full testosterone panel, and thyroid tests. Lab tests range from $25-$290 depending on the type and extent of the test required.
CallonDoc also has a fair refund policy. If the CallonDoc doctor is unable to prescribe an appropriate medication to treat your condition, you will be fully refunded for the consultation.
Does CallonDoc Take Insurance?
CallonDoc does not accept health insurance. You can use your insurance policy to pay for medications at the pharmacy, however.
