Here you will find answers to any questions you may have about TeddyCanHeal’s medical services.
Why does TeddyCanHeal not treat conditions such as erectile dysfunction, hair loss and weight loss?
Unfortunately, our Providers are unable to treat and prescribe medication for such conditions as these types of ailments require an in-person consultation and continuous monitoring by your primary care physician due to the side effects of such drugs. If you are interested in receiving medical advice without receiving a prescription, our Board Certified Medical Providers are able to discuss your ailment and provide medical advice as necessary and appropriate.
What health conditions can TeddyCanHeal treat?
Our medical services can help treat a wide range of conditions such as: abrasions, flu-like illnesses, allergies, respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, skin infections, bronchitis, sprains, and more! We have the tools to guide you through your diagnostic and healing process based on a variety of symptoms and medical history.
My condition cannot be treated through TeddyCanHeal – can I still discuss it with a provider?
I have anxiety, ADD, ADHD, or Depression. Can TeddyCanHeal help me?
If you are concerned that you are experiencing anxiety or depression, you may discuss your symptoms with one of our Board Certified Medical Providers. Generally, we cannot initiate a new regimen of medication for these conditions, as these types of medications should be monitored with an in-person check-up by your primary care physician.
If you are under the care of a doctor already, we may be able to refill your prescription on a temporary basis (as long as the medication is not controlled or otherwise against our prescription policy.)
Keep in mind that conditions such as anxiety and depression are not only treated by medication but also through counseling, behavioral therapy, and other psychological services.
Can TeddyCanHeal fill out medical forms?
Most forms require an in-person exam. Common examples include driver’s forms, sports physicals, and handicap assessments. If you have a different kind of form, it may be possible for our Providers to help you. Be sure to bring as much documentation as possible to share with your Provider. You can upload this information to your chart before you begin the consultation.

Can I order lab tests through TeddyCanHeal?
Unfortunately no, our Providers are unable to order lab tests. Due to the nature of telemedicine, it is difficult to follow up, obtain the results, and interpret these tests, so TeddyCanHeal Providers are unable to offer this service. Our providers may suggest following up with your in-person provider and obtaining a test, however they are unable to order a test on your behalf.
Can my TeddyCanHeal medical provider write me a prescription?
Yes. When medically necessary, our providers can submit an e-prescription for purchase and pick-up at your local pharmacy. Please be informed that TeddyCanHeal is not a replacement for your primary care physician or annual office check-ups. TeddyCanHeal is not an online pharmacy.

Review the DEA Controlled Substances Schedule if you are interested in a particular prescription and are uncertain if it is listed as a controlled substance. . Providers generally do not prescribe more than a 90-day refill within a 6 month period. TeddyCanHeal consultations treat the majority of common medical conditions, however a small number of cases require an in-person visit for complete care.
When medically necessary, your prescription will be electronically sent to the local pharmacy of your choice and you may access a copy of the exam for your medical records through your patient profile.
What kind of medications can TeddyCanHeal providers prescribe?
Our Providers will discuss your health history and assess whether a refill is safe at this time or whether it would be prudent to see your primary care physician in person.

TeddyCanHeal Providers cannot start a regimen of maintenance medication, and require proof of recent prescription for all refills. Providers also generally cannot increase the initial dosage of a particular medication as suggested by your primary care physician.
