Pediatric Associates now has the ability to conduct some office visits via Telemedicine. We will provide this service through the current COVID-19 public health emergency, during usual office hours (9:00am-4:00pm for Telemedicine) on weekdays.
Our nurses and office staff will evaluate your request for a Telemedicine visit based on our ability to perform the necessary physical assessment that may be somewhat limited by the video platform. Our provider will remain in a private examining room or office throughout the visit. It will not be recorded.
We will conduct the visit via the Zoom video conferencing platform easily downloaded from the app store or other sources of apps, or accessed online at Zoom.us. You do not need to have an account with Zoom, you simply access the app or website, push the "join" button and enter the I.D. number provided by our office.* Please be patient waiting as we may not be immediately on time. Feel free to wait in the Zoom virtual waiting room or call the office if the wait time seems overly extended.
We will evaluate your child and recommend diagnostics and treatments based on our assessment. We will provide follow-up care in person if or when that becomes essential.
*Third-party applications such as Zoom, Facetime, and Skype do potentially introduce privacy risks
