Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine appointments at the Center for Advanced Pediatrics allow you to get medical care for your child without leaving your home. Telemedicine visits take place through your smartphone, computer, or tablet. You have direct contact with your pediatric specialist to diagnose and manage health conditions.

What are the benefits of a telemedicine appointment?

Telemedicine visits are more convenient than in-person trips to the doctor. When your child has an ailment that is diagnosable and treatable via telemedicine, you get a fast diagnosis and save the time of waiting for your appointment and traveling to the office.

You won’t have to make your child leave the comfort of the couch or their bed. Plus, you won’t risk infecting other children with your child’s illness or exposing your child to additional illnesses.

When should I schedule a telemedicine appointment?

A telemedicine visit is appropriate for many pediatric services, including:

  • Mental health visits
  • Dermatology issues like rashes, acne, eczema, and bug bites
  • Cold and flu symptoms, including COVID-19 concerns
  • Prescription renewals
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Infected cuts
  • Lab test and radiology report reviews
  • Well-child checks

You also have access to medication management for conditions like asthma, allergies, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

If you’re unsure whether your child needs an in-person or telemedicine appointment, just call the friendly staff at the Center for Advanced Pediatrics for guidance. If you do set up a telemedicine visit and the doctor determines that they need to examine your child in person, you can set up the appointment right away.

How do I set up a telemedicine appointment?

Scheduling a telemedicine appointment is simple. Call the office to schedule your appointment, and the staff will let you know how your provider will contact you. They give directions about the patient portal, email link, or phone call you’ll receive. These things will be explained to you, especially if it’s your first telemedicine experience.

You’ll need access to your smartphone, computer with a camera and microphone, or a tablet. Log in five to 10 minutes before your appointment to make sure you can navigate any snags in the technology.
