Earth Day’s Pulse at ZoomCare

Did you know that spending time by the sea can improve skin health and respiratory function? That sunlight boosts vitamin D levels and helps regulate mood and your body's rhythms? Plus, forest therapy has been shown to reduce stress, enhance mental wellness, and lower blood pressure. 

However, it’s not uncommon to encounter bumps in the road while spending time outside. Don’t worry—ZoomCare is here to help with same-day visits and education around which visit to choose for each outdoor experience.

Enjoy outdoor activities with peace of mind

If you find yourself navigating new or ongoing health issues after spending more time outside, we’ve got you covered. Our Urgent Care providers address and treat a variety out outdoor mishaps:

  • On a hike and notice an itch or pain on your skin? If you find yourself with an insect bite or sting, our providers have got your back. 
  • If you spot early symptoms of a tick bite, our providers can assess the bite, provide appropriate treatment, and guide you through any necessary next steps.
  • If you brush up against the wrong plant or overheat on your long hike, our team can help relieve rash symptoms and determine the culprit. 
  • If any small cuts, scrapes, and burns pop up while out roaming the planet, we’ll help you land back on your feet.
  • Going for a swim? Ear and eye infections can happen. When they do, ZoomCare is here to prescribe medication and recommend treatment to alleviate your pain.

On the other hand, our Emergency Care Doctors can help provide support for more serious complications that arise: 

  • If you are experiencing severe symptoms of Lyme Disease, our Emergency Doctors will assess your symptoms, order necessary labs, and recommend medication and treatment plans. 
  • If you are spending more time in the sun than usual and notice yourself exhibiting symptoms of dehydration, our Super clinics are here to help.

Struggling to get outside?

Our compassionate Primary Care providers are ready to start the conversation about your mental wellbeing. Or, our Mental Health providers can step in and explore the use of prescription medication. Let's prioritize your well-being together.
