Physicians and Pharmacists Unite to Battle Herpes Online

January 31, 2018

 

For Immediate Release

North Palm Beach, FL – HerpesHappens.org announces a new option for patients to access medical care for herpes infections and outbreaks. Doctors and pharmacists have partnered to offer patients both diagnosis and treatment via an online consultation and can elect to have prescription medication mailed discreetly to their door, under one mobile-friendly website.

 

"We provide patients a one-stop experience through technology. Physicians and pharmacists provide a discreet and affordable way for herpes sufferers to receive treatment from the privacy and convenience of their own home.” said co-founder Gail Gentile.

 

Herpes is a common skin condition caused by a virus. Transmission of the virus can happen through any type of skin-to-skin contact. In fact, around 80% of humans have been exposed to the Herpes virus (HSV-1 & HSV-2) with 2 out of 3 people under age 50 actually having HSV-1. The Herpes virus remains the fastest growing and most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States where 1 in 5 people carry the specific strain that causes genital herpes (HSV-2).

 

While the condition cannot currently be cured, outbreaks can be easily controlled and prevented through prescription anti-viral medication. Unfortunately, many patients fail to seek treatment because of the stigma associated with herpes, and the fear of embarrassment that comes with the traditional face-to-face doctor's visit and brick and mortar pharmacy pick up.

 

HerpesHappens.org is the first, and only, website to offer comprehensive online treatment for all forms of Herpes, allowing patients to seek medical care from the comfort and privacy of their own homes. Patients enter their health information, upload their photos, and complete a dynamic e-visit in which the whole process typically takes less than 5 minutes.   Physicians then access patient data through a HIPAA-compliant, and secure proprietary telemedicine software platform. After reviewing the patient’s health information and asking any necessary follow-up questions, physicians submit prescriptions to accredited partnered pharmacies through a secure e-script platform or they can elect to use their local pharmacy for pickup. Our partner pharmacies fill prescriptions at super low costs and expedite them to patients in discreet packaging.

 

HerpesHappens.org does more than provide safe, fast, and private access to care, it also helps patients save money on the e-visit and the medication costs associated with treating this condition for typically the cost of a normal co-pay.

 

"We link highly qualified doctors who embrace our online platform to patients in need of treatment and integrate a ‘cloud pharmacy network’ for efficient and accurate dispensing of prescription medication to their doorstep. This groundbreaking technology and service provides significant cost savings and access to critical on-demand health care for the patient in one seamless operation." said co-founder Andrew McCulloch.

 

All HerpesHappens.org physicians are Board Certified, with a passion for patient care. They use our advanced telemedicine technology to diagnose and treat the symptoms of Herpes accurately and confidentially at a cost far lower than the average office visit. Our partner pharmacies have agreed to provide prescription medication at reduced rates for our patients. HerpesHappens.org is currently offering patients a physician consultation and related medication for just $25.

 

“There is an inequality in the American healthcare system with respect to cost, access, and availability of care. We understand herpes can happen to anyone through a variety of circumstances, and the herpes virus does not discriminate on any basis of life who it decides to infect. This organization was born to ensure an equal and affordable healthcare approach for all Americans to access immediate STI treatment.” said Andrew McCulloch.

 

For many patients with Herpes, the worst part of the condition is living with the associated stigma and public misunderstanding. Chicken pox, shingles, and cold sores are all different forms of the herpes virus, yet HSV-1 and HSV-2 carry the largest negative note. HerpesHappens.org is committed to ensuring that patients are treated with respect, dignity, and a wide range of information for living with herpes through their blog The Stigma and email list.  Patients can receive updates on breakthrough medicine, daily habits, and ways to reduce outbreaks and cope with this extremely common virus.
