What is Pediatric Telemedicine?
Pediatric Telemedicine is a virtual program where your child can receive medical care from a certified pediatrician. The online program uses live audio and video feedback between child and doctor so they can communicate in real-time, offering many of the same treatment options available during in-person pediatric appointments. This emerging pediatrician visit format has been recommended by trusted medical sources such as the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Parents will be present during their child’s telemedicine appointment and have the opportunity to offer questions and concerns to the virtual pediatrician. It can be an excellent option that provides urgent care and specialist pediatricians while adding convenience and saving time for families.
With the unpredictability of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, telehealth appointments are a safe option for your family to social distance while receiving regular medical care.
