The University of Virginia Health System has launched a hotline for Charlottesville-area patients without a primary care doctor.
According to a news release from UVa Health, the hotline will be staffed by medical students and doctors.
To use the hotline, which is in service from 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, call (434) 982-6843 and choose option 3. The medical students and doctors answering the phone can assist with any medical questions or needs, including help with scheduling an in-person or virtual clinic visit if needed, according to the release.
The initial phone consultation will be provided for free.
