The McKinney Fire Department is partnering with Integrative Emergency Services to provide telemedicine to those who live and work in the city.
“During COVID-19, some people may be shying away from needed medical care. We hope the McKinney Fire Department’s telemedicine program will be a way for people to safely seek that help,” said Chief Danny Kistner, McKinney Fire Department.
Through a web portal, users can connect 24/7 with a board-certified Emergency Medicine physician.
Visits are free during the 7-day pilot period. After that, there may be a charge depending on insurance.
This is not a substitution for emergencies -- for those you should still call 911. However, callers are able to receive help for a number of other urgent medical conditions such as:
- Stomach aches
- Thyroid disorders
- Prescriptions and refills
- Skin care
- Birth control
The portal can be accessed at https://ies.connectedcare.md/. From there, click on "I'm a Patient" and register for a new account. Schedule a telemedicine visit by clicking "Visit Type" and selecting "McKinney Fire Mobile Medicine."
