That’s where eMDnow, located in Jacksonville, surpasses all other telehealth providers in the local community and throughout the state of Florida. In fact, we are the only telemedicine provider certified by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Veterans Caring for Veterans
Having served in the military and/or the Department of Veterans Affairs, the providers at eMDnow have a unique understanding of fellow veterans’ primary health care needs. Besides providing treatment for acute and chronic medical conditions – including many women’s obstetric and gynecological services – we also provide key services specific to the needs of veterans, such as military health screening, medication review, and military mental health issues.
The providers at eMDnow have all served in our nation’s military or have previously worked with military personnel at the Department of Veterans Affairs. This gives them keen insight into the distinct health care needs of veterans and their families, as well as a special commitment to serving their former brothers and sisters in arms. Their mission is to make access to affordable primary health care as timely and efficient as possible.

This technological breakthrough revolutionizes the doctor-patient relationship, enabling virtual consultations, faster evaluation and diagnosis, and access to prescribed medication within minutes instead of days, weeks, or months.

How Can eMDnow Help Veterans in Florida?
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is undergoing challenges with helping veterans get appointments in a timely manner. In Jacksonville, Florida, veterans wait on average more than 35 days to see a primary care physician. Some internal struggles within the VA are beyond their control, including a lack of funding, critical shortage of staff, and huge turnover.
The providers at eMDnow are helping to change this situation. Each member of the team has prior military or VA experience. We are also the only telemedicine provider in our area certified by the VA.
Another advantage of eMDnow is that other telemedicine companies do not provide services that take into account conditions specific to veterans, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sexual trauma, and other military-related health care issues.
The Benefits of Online Doctor Visits
Utilizing eMDnow’s download app for iPhone or Android, veterans and their families can meet with a doctor online at the patient’s convenience. This saves time and the hassle of traveling long distances to receive medical attention, as well as expenses associated with having to visit a VA hospital or other health care facility miles away from the patient’s home.
