Georgia Virtual Doctor Appointments

When you can't get an in-person visit to a doctor's office, booking a virtual appointment to set up a video visit can help you get the medical care you need. Telemedicine visits keep medical care services only as far away as a mobile app. With Babylon, you can access an online doctor in Georgia that offers telemedicine services to keep you healthy. Address everything from routine primary care checkups to non-emergency urgent care at a time that works for you. Mental wellness is also important: you can book an appointment to speak remotely to a therapist via our telemedicine services. Here's how seeing a virtual doctor in Georgia works and all about booking virtual doctor visits today.

FAQs

What is an online doctor visit?

When you schedule a virtual doctor visit, you will get a phone or video call from your healthcare provider via the Babylon app. Your doctor will discuss treatment options and offer healthcare services while you stay in the comfort of your own home.

Like an in-office visit, once you are on a voice or video call with a healthcare provider, your doctor will ask about your symptoms. They will help develop a treatment plan, including any necessary prescriptions or referrals to a specialist or lab.

Can a virtual doctor prescribe medications in Georgia?
