Spring has finally arrived, or so they say, and if you’re one of the millions of people who have seasonal allergies, it also means sneezing, congestion, runny nose, and other irritating symptoms.
With UPMC AnywhereCare, you can get quick and convenient treatment so you can get back to doing all the fun activities that spring offers, no matter the time or place.
“As people start to become affected with allergies, UPMC AnywhereCare can be used as a valuable, time-saving tool to get treated, instead of taking time to schedule an appointment,” says Natasa Sokolovich, executive director of telemedicine at UPMC. “The convenience of getting treatment from your couch, at work, or wherever else you happen to be is definitely something people are looking for.”
