Telemedicine Virtual Pediatric Appointments
We are pleased to offer telemedicine virtual visits during regular office hours.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO FIRST CALL THE OFFICE IF YOUR CHILD IS ILL.
A staff member will decide what type of care is most appropriate for your child. If telemedicine is recommended this service will allow us to evaluate your child in the comfort of your home via a secure video call.
Telemedicine will allow us to discuss your child’s illness and give your child an interactive real time visual exam and make recommendations. There might be times that the Telemedicine visit needs to be transitioned to an in person visit and in that case you will not be charged for the Telemedicine portion of the visit.
Once we determined your child qualifies for a Telemedicine visit, you will be given an appointment time. You will be asked to call the office 5 minutes before you appointment time to check into the appointment and make any necessary payments. Please provide a cell phone number or email address and a link will be sent to via text message or via email. When you sign into the appointment using the link you will need to allow access to your microphone and camera so we can see and talk to you during the visit. You will need to review and agree to the consent prior to the Telemedicine visit.
The visit will be billed to your insurance company and are now covered by most health insurance plans. In the event your insurance does not cover the visit there will be a maximum $75.00 charge for the visit.
PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT
