Telemedicine is an excellent resource for pediatric care because it eliminates the stresses of in-person medical visits. You can schedule an appointment by calling our office or booking online. Once your appointment is set, our office will guide you through the steps to prepare for your first visit. Once a doctor is available during your scheduled appointment, they will call you and discuss your urgent care concerns. The doctor will treat your child over the phone or refer them to an emergency care center if they feel your child has a life-threatening emergency.
Telemedicine has been offered for many years but has recently become something patients can request as a primary care physician or family doctor. Telehealth providers have streamlined the process for online care and payments to benefit everyone. The pandemic forced more insurance health plans and healthcare practices to adopt online care, so parents now have better healthcare options for their children. Parents have widely embraced telehealth due to its tremendous benefits.
Parents shouldn't have to choose between caring for their child's health concerns or going to work. Parents can quickly schedule appointments for their sick child without missing work. A parent can schedule a remote appointment in under five minutes online on our website.
Telemedicine reduces time spent in waiting rooms. Telehealth appointments are over the phone or video so you don't have to go to an office and wait in a room until a doctor is ready to see you. Check in online and you might only have to talk to the clinician.
Sick people gather in doctor's waiting rooms, making pediatric visits a breeding room for infections, especially in a pediatric office where children move around and touch different objects. It is significantly safer for both the parent and the child to receive medical services through telemedicine.
Pediatric cases where symptoms persist may require a visit to the doctor's office for further testing, diagnosis, and proper treatment. These symptoms may include:
