Telemedicine and virtual care are good for a variety of low acuity medical conditions. Every health condition varies, and the physician uses their clinical judgement to determine if the virtual care visit is the best way to treat your concern. If you feel your condition is an emergency, you should call 911.
Individuals are received on a first-come first-served basis. If the queue is long, our care team will schedule you a time to see the doctor virtually, so that you can carry on with your day. When you plan to create an account or request a consultation, have your provincial health card and government issued photo ID available to confirm your identity.
If you are in a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
Currently, Lumeca is available for Saskatchewan residents while they are physically located in the province of Saskatchewan.
Telemedicine is safe and effective and is an insured service in Saskatchewan. Lumeca Doctors can accurately diagnose many common illnesses and injuries without a hands-on examination. However, telemedicine has its limitations and sometimes the doctor will recommend you be seen in person.
