To help you avoid a potentially unnecessary trip to an emergency center, Harris Health System offers On-Demand Virtual Care Services. On-Demand Virtual Care Services connects you with board certified emergency care physicians who can evaluate and assess your condition from the comfort of your home.
During your virtual care visit, our physicians will provide you with a treatment plan that is best for you and your condition, which may include a recommendation to go to an emergency center.
