Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth is a medical service that allows you to visit your child’s pediatrician without coming into the office. Instead of traveling to Neighborhood Pediatrics for your child’s appointment, you can access their pediatrician through a secure connection on a laptop, phone, or tablet. 

Using clear audio and a high-definition video feed, you and your child can speak with your child’s provider face to face. You can also remotely access or update information about your child’s health and wellness and communicate with your child’s pediatrician about their needs or concerns. 

There are many benefits to using telehealth with Neighborhood Pediatrics, and same-day telehealth visits are available for your convenience. Your child’s provider lets you know if any services your child needs still require an office visit instead.

What are the benefits of telehealth?

Telehealth offers many benefits to busy families in need of routine or follow-up medical care. Virtual telehealth visits make communications easier and more consistent. Other advantages of using telehealth include:

  • Saving time on traveling to the clinic
  • Saving costs of traveling to the clinic
  • Availability when you’re out of town
  • Avoiding spreading or catching infections with an office visit
  • A more accurate assessment since you’re in your home environment

Because telehealth makes accessing your child’s physician easier and more convenient, it allows you to strengthen your family’s relationship with your pediatrician and receive helpful advice when you need it instead of waiting days or weeks for a typical in-person appointment. 

When can I use telehealth?

You can use telehealth for several different types of visits at Neighborhood Pediatrics. 

If your child needs a sick visit, telehealth may be available the very same day for a brief yet effective assessment of your child’s symptoms. This is especially beneficial as it allows you to keep your child at home where they’re more comfortable and won’t spread the infection to others. 

Additionally, telehealth services work well for follow-up visits after treatments or services in the office at Neighborhood Pediatrics. 

Your child’s pediatrician checks in on how your child is doing after treatment, taking a new medication, or adjusting a dosage. These visits are often brief, so telehealth lets you save the extra time it takes to drive to the office and back home again. 

After a telehealth visit, your child’s pediatrician can prescribe new medications or adjust current medications according to the results of the brief exam.
