For your convenience, we offer virtual urgent care visits. This is healthcare that doesn’t require a trip to the physician’s office. Sometimes referred to as telehealth, it uses telephone or video calls to connect the patient and provider in real time from just about any location.

Virtual visit care is able to treat the majority of common complaints, including the following.

  • Colds
  • Ear Pain
  • Insect Bites
  • Non-narcotic Medical Refills
  • Pink Eye
  • Rash
  • Seasonal Allergies
  • Sinus Issues
  • Sore Throat
  • Sunburn
  • Tick Bite (if the tick is already removed)
  • Toothache
  • Urinary tract infection

Most Outer Banks Medical Group practices offer virtual care. The visit can be done from anywhere that allows both the patient and the provider to hear and see each other well. For more information, call your provider to determine whether your visit purpose can be handled virtually. For practice locations and phone numbers, visit

We can treat all aged patients except for patients who are under 3 years old with a fever.  Your information is safe and your visit is completely confidential.
