Urgent Care by GreatCall – Nurses and Doctors on demand 24/7. FREE App!
A #1 medical app in iTunes and Google Play in 2013 and 2014
Urgent Care lets you speak to a US based registered nurse who will triage your medical questions and if needed have a licensed physician call you back within 30 minutes.
The doctor may give assessments, medical advice or diagnose a wide range of conditions over the phone as well as prescribe common medications. Plus, Urgent Care features the award winning A.D.A.M. medical dictionary and medical encyclopedia as well as an interactive symptom checker for additional health information.
How can this be only $3.99 a call when other apps charge $40 or more?
Other apps connect you instantly to a doctor for upwards of $40 a call, no matter if it’s medically necessary or not. Urgent Care however connects you first to a Registered Nurse who based on the symptoms can escalate your call to a Doctor or Pediatrician if needed for no extra charge – saving unnecessary calls and allowing us to pass the savings on to you.
What you get:
• Access to a live, registered nurse who can escalate to a board-certified doctor around the clock
• Doctor has ability to give assessments, advise or diagnose a wide range of conditions over the phone
• Pediatricians available if needed
• Doctors have ability to prescribe common medications
• Spanish translators available

Not much help, waste of money
I've used this app on two separate occasions, one for an intervention that required antibiotics and another to get a prescription for a confirmed diagnosis from my doctor, and had the same poor experience both times. When I called the nurse essentially just looked up my symptoms in WebMD and then proceeded to tell me what an "infection" is. She then told me to go to an urgent care clinic just to double check. This is not a solution! It wasn't an emergency, it was a standard rash which was already diagnosed earlier and I just needed to talk to a doctor! I requested both times to be escalated to a doctor but was denied both times. So great, I paid $8 to be told to go to the ER or Urgent Care clinic so I can pay another $200 for nothing. Waste of money and time for this app, all they do is tell you some generic information about what you may have and then tell you to go to a real doctor. Avoid this app, very disappointing 😒
Terrible follow through
This is a great idea but I have been waiting two days now for them to call in a prescription for antibiotics and the pharmacy hasn't received it. I've talked with five different representatives from urgent care, every one of them was supposed to have clinical staff call me back but nobody has. All five representatives confirmed that it was called in and confirmed the address of pharmacy, but still after two days,nobody can tell me why the pharmacy hasn't received it. I wish this service worked but it just doesn't.
This app is absolutely wonderful. I think it has great info. I do have a few serious suggestions.
1 while you have a list disorders, Diseases, Disorders and symptoms I would love a list separate of your library of tests and procedures like ERCP, CBC, CMP, Blood Cultures, etc!
2 I think you need to add Sandhoff Disease!
Other than that, THIS THING IS AMAZING!!!! I really think that it could be improved Of course, EVERYTHING CAN BE IMPROVED!! Thank You VERY much for reading this rating comment if you did. I know you are doing a lot of work and AM BLOODIED CERTAIN, that you do not have all the time in the world to review every single persons comments word for word. I totally understand this and respect all of this.
