Telemedicine

  • Telemedicine appointments are available in the afternoon. 

  • Your provider will be able to see and speak to you, arrange referrals, send in prescriptions, and provide school notes, all over video chat. 

  • Call the office for an appointment and we will send you a link to the video platform where the visit will be conducted. Please be ready on the platform at least 5 minutes before the scheduled appointment time. 

  • You can connect using a smartphone, iPad, or a computer with a camera. If you do not have access to any of these, let our staff know and we will schedule a phone telemedicine visit.  

  • If at all possible, we will continue to do our best to help you manage your sick child at home.

  • In the event that you are away from the city at the time of your child's annual well visit we offer telehealth well visits. Your child will need to come into the office for a follow-up in person exam at some point. 

Insurance Information

  • Telemedicine appointments are billed through your insurance.

  • Insurance companies have recently signaled that these visits will be covered like in office visits. 

  • Copays due for the visit can be paid over the portal or by calling our office.

  • For telehealth well visits please confirm with your insurance company that your specific plan will the appointment or you will be responsible for the cost. 

  • If your child has a telehealth well visit, their follow-up visit in the office will likely have a co-pay as it will be billed as a follow-up visit not a well visit.
