The way patients connect to doctors has changed drastically in the last century. There was a time, long ago, when a patient could rest comfortably at home until a doctor arrived, bearing a medical bag equipped for a home visit. Those days faded away decades ago, and patients became accustomed to long interludes in waiting rooms, trying to make their ill bodies as comfortable as possible on a plastic chair.

Now, Magruder Hospital has turned back the clock by finding a modern way to connect patients to their doctors from home. Magruder Virtual Care allows patients to consult with doctors by smartphone, tablet or computer. There is no wait, no commute and no appointment needed.

Magruder Virtual Care is quick and easy access to healthcare.

Magruder Virtual Care is available for patients experiencing non-emergency symptoms like cold and flu discomforts, minor skin or stomach issues, sinus or sore throat problems, allergies and more. The virtual visits cost a flat fee of $65. Magruder Virtual Care is offered every day from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. for all ages, from newborns to seniors.

How do Magruder Virtual Care visits work? Virtual visits are fast and easy. A patient should have internet access and audio and video functions enabled. It will be necessary to show the clinician an ID.

Follow these simple steps for an efficient virtual visit:

  • Create a new account or log in to your current account.
  • Share your symptoms.
  • Arrange payment or enter insurance information (pay with debit or credit card if no insurance).
  • Start your visit with a quick connect to a virtual clinician.
  • Receive a diagnosis and treatment plan.
  • Head to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription and/or a refill, if needed.

Patients can message the clinician within 24 hours of the visit at no extra cost. For more information, visit
