August 19th, 2016 – DOCNow is a new telemedicine service that offers Hawaii residents the option to see a Hawaii based doctor online, 365 days a year from a computer, tablet, or Smartphone.
“With the recent outbreak of Hepatitis A we are making our convenient telemedicine services available for those residents who feel they would benefit from a vaccination or would like to speak about any concerns they might have with a Hawaii physician,” said Dr. Jim Barahal co-founder and CEO of DOCNow Virtual Healthcare Centers.
Residents can easily get a prescription from DOCNow and then select a pharmacy near them to receive their immunization.
“We have been administering a lot of shots over the past few weeks,” said Catalina Cross, Director of Pharmacy for Times Supermarket. “We are doing our best to work with physicians to obtain Hepatitis A prescriptions for their patients. We see a great opportunity for DOCNow to assist patients who do not have a Primary Physician.”
DOCNow accepts all local insurance including HMSA/Blue Cross, UHA, HMA, and HMAA. No insurance? No problem. DOCNow accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover – and a visit is just $49.
“To make it even more affordable for Hawaii residences during this time of need we’re also offering the first visit free of charge for those who might not have insurance,” said Dr. Barahal, “The most important thing is that if you’re worried, don’t wait, at DOCNow you can get the care you need now.”
For people who want to get a Hepatitis immunization prescription DOCNow is open daily from 8 a.m. – 9 p.m.
