A convenient way for non UC Davis Health patients to connect virtually with a care team member

Telehealth Express Care video visits are available for anyone in California through the MyUCDavisHealth app and web portal.

  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Cough
  • Urinary tract issues

During your video visit, care team members also have the ability to order laboratory and imaging testing if you need it, including COVID-19 testing.
