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.

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 😒
I called and spoke with a very nice nurse who gave me great advice. I had a cough that just started and she provided me with advice on how to help decrease it and when I should see a doctor. Lots of good advice that I didn't think to try. The nurse offered to have me speak to a doctor but I wasn't to that point yet. I wanted to try home care advice first. It does cost extra to speak with a doctor and the nurse can't prescribe any meds so if you are looking for a prescription, slip the nurse and speak with a doctor. Love love love this app!
"DRINK SOME HOT TEA"
There, I just saved you the $3.99 charge for making a call on this app. My girlfriend's daughter has had a severe chest cold and cough for a week. She called these clowns, hoping to get a prescription for antibiotics for her obvious infection. Instead, the "nurse" refused to let her talk to the doctor, instead, telling her to "drink some hot tea".
As I write this, Katie is on the way to the hospital. Her cough/infection has gotten so severe that she is now vomiting green. Swell app (I'm being sarcastic).
Don't waste your time or your money, and certainly do not trust your health to these amateurs.
It's a racket. $3.99 doesn't sound like much, but if you collect that from a few thousand people it really adds up.
