Do you live in a rural town or have a condition that makes it difficult to leave your home? With Superior Health Medical’s telehealth urgent care services, you can access high-quality medical care without ever stepping foot outside. Registration is fast and easy, and appointments are often available the same day.
Additionally, our online platform is secure and private, adhering to HIPAA guidelines and safeguarding your information. Anything you say to your healthcare provider will remain between the two of you.
For Life-Threatening Conditions, Visit an Urgent Care Facility Immediately
Online urgent care appointments are fast and convenient when it comes to certain ailments and conditions, but they’re not the appropriate choice when it comes to emergencies. Individuals experiencing chest pain, and allergic reaction, or who have sustained a serious injury should seek in-person medical attention at the nearest emergency room.
Benefits of Our Telehealth Urgent Care
When you need an urgent care visit, odds are you need to be seen quickly to address an illness or mental health concern. However, in-person visits can take up a lot of time—from scheduling and arranging transportation to calling out of work or arranging child care. Telehealth urgent care appointments take just minutes to schedule and can be attended from wherever you are.
South Carolina is composed of rural mountain and valley towns, rolling farmland, and serene beaches—many of which are far from medical facilities. Telehealth urgent care appointments provide isolated and far-flung South Carolina residents with access to the professional healthcare they need.
Virtual urgent care eliminates the need to drive to your appointment and sit idle in a waiting room. Instead, you can make your appointment and go about your day until it’s time to meet with your healthcare provider. Then, you can simply log into your device and receive comprehensive medical care online.
When it comes to insurance coverage, our South Carolina urgent care accepts Medicaid and Tricare. All other types of insurance, including Medicaid, are excluded. Please include your insurance information on your registration form before your first appointment.
Superior Health Medical in South Carolina not only accepts certain medical insurance, we also have affordable options for those without coverage. Self-pay appointments are just $75, plus the cost of any medication you may be prescribed.

Common Conditions Treated
Virtual urgent care appointments aren’t just convenient—they can help prevent the spread of contagious illnesses like the common cold or COVID-19. If you’re too sick to leave your home or have a suppressed immune system, telehealth is an easy way to protect yourself and others.

Our Telehealth Urgent Care Process: How it Works
The telehealth urgent care process at Superior Health Medical in South Carolina begins with a review of your current health status, medical history, and prescription medications and supplements. After assessing this information, your healthcare provider will go through a diagnostic questionnaire to determine your condition.
During your evaluation, your provider may ask for your current temperature, weight, and blood pressure. Try to have the necessary equipment to provide this information nearby so you can provide the most accurate information possible.
Before this initial evaluation, you’ll need to create a profile on our platform and schedule your appointment. Our urgent care appointments are often available the same day or within a day or two of registration.
The urgent care process is quick and easy.
Schedule an appointment, and then you’ll receive a secure link (via text) to a brief questionnaire that asks for basic personal and medical information so that Dr. Akers can better understand your health needs and provide the most appropriate care.
When meeting with a healthcare provider via telehealth, it’s important to be as specific about your symptoms as possible. The more information your provider has, the easier it will be for them to provide a diagnosis and appropriate care.
Telehealth treatment options may include:
- Recommendations for at-home treatment
- Prescription medications
- Referral to a specialist
At Superior Health Medical, all urgent care patients receive a digital summary of their appointment, including information about prescribed medications. We’ll also send your prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy so you can get your medication sooner.
If you’re prescribed medication during your first appointment, you should begin taking it as directed. You can also begin making other recommended lifestyle changes, such as starting an exercise routine, adding more nutrient-dense foods to your diet, or improving your sleep hygiene.
Part of your follow-up after that first appointment includes a reminder to schedule your next appointment. To access comprehensive and convenient medical care, contact Superior Health Medical in South Carolina today.
