These days it’s becoming more and more important for families to be able to have pediatric and adult medical care at their fingertips. Of course, busy schedules, a sick child and pandemics can also make it more difficult to come to the office for an appointment. Don’t worry; we can bring a physician to you thanks to our telemedicine services.
When is a Telemedicine Appointment Needed?
Telemedicine is a great option when symptoms or problems arise that aren’t urgent but do require a doctor’s attention. You may choose to schedule a telemedicine visit with our team to,
- Discuss symptoms you or your child is dealing with
- Make a definitive diagnosis
- Determine whether you or your child should come into the office for additional care
- Determine whether you or your child may require testing (e.g. rapid test, urine test, blood test)
- Refill a prescription without having to come into the office
- Discuss the current treatment plan
- We also offer telemedicine visits for nutrition and lifestyle medicine
Make sure that you fully understand what a telemedicine visit entails. Feel free to talk this over with our team beforehand. You may choose to use either a laptop or smartphone for the session.
