What is telehealth?

Telehealth is increased access to medical care from the comfort of home or while traveling anywhere in the world. During telehealth visits, the team at American Pediatrics communicates with you and your child through a phone, tablet, desktop computer, or laptop.   

You’ll join the “virtual meeting room” during your scheduled time, and once in there, you and your child will be able to see their pediatrician in real time. It’s very much like a face-to-face appointment except you’re using technology. 

What conditions can be treated through telehealth?

At American Pediatrics, the team treats many health conditions using telehealth. Some of the most common reasons parents use telehealth for their child’s health care include:  

  • Cough and Cold
  • Sinus issues
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Skin rashes
  • Stomach issues
  • Eye concerns like dry eyes
  • Chronic disease management
  • Getting imaging (X-ray, MRI, CT scan, ultrasound) test results
  • Post-surgery follow-up
  • Prescription refills

The team can also treat many other non-emergency conditions through telehealth, based on your child’s specific needs. 

If you have questions or concerns about their physical or behavioral health and want face-to-face time with their pediatrician to discuss it, telehealth is an excellent way to do so. Many of the same conditions that typically require an in-office visit for care may be met through telehealth.

What are the benefits of the telehealth approach?

Telehealth is a convenient way to receive health care because it allows you and your child to see their pediatrician without having to leave the house. With flexible scheduling, you can also plan your visit around your day or travel abroad and not have to worry. 

If your child is sick and frustrated, the last thing they want to do is get out and about. Telehealth allows you to look after their health while they’re recovering at home.  

While many health concerns can be addressed using telehealth, there may be some treatments that require in-office care. You can reach out to the team at American Pediatrics if you’re unsure whether your child’s health issue can be treated with telehealth.  

All of the pediatricians at American Pediatrics offer the option of telehealth visits, but these are reserved for returning patients only.
