TELEHEALTH

The new (virtual) reality in medical care

 
 

We’re always happy to see you and your children in our office, where we can do a thorough examination, answer any of your questions, discuss your child’s health, growth and development, and go over lab results. Most of the time, these are things that we do during regular office visits. There are times, however, when you just can’t get into the office for an in-person visit.


To help during these times, we have a very good alternative called “telehealth.” If you would like to see a doctor but can’t come in, call the office and set up a “virtual visit” using our zoom-based telehealth service. This is also now now our preferred way to answer ANY of your questions -- the big ones and the simple ones as well.


To help us all keep in touch, we now offer “virtual visits” through the popular Zoom app. With very little effort and very little tech knowledge (thank God!), you can be speaking to and SEEING one of our doctors in no time flat. Simply call and speak to any of our reception staff and they can set you up with a scheduled virtual visit.


We find that these visits work particularly well for any of the following issues:

   

• Questions about feeding infants


• Handling behavioral issues at any age


• Refilling prescriptions or discussing medication


  1. Handling minor illnesses where an office visit isn’t absolutely necessary


  1. Having a look at a rash


• Helping determine if an office visit is needed


• Discussing lab results


• Ordering lab tests, including Covid-19 testing


• Managing chronic conditions, such as asthma, skin conditions, gastrointestinal problems (constipation, diarrhea)


... And many, many more. In other words, instead of picking up the phone, pick up your smart phone or your computer mouse.


Thankfully, you don’t have to be a computer whiz to do this. Just call the office and our staff can “walk you” through the simple steps.
