Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine involves the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of pediatric medical problems via your phone, computer, tablet, or another electronic device instead of in-person appointments. By choosing telemedicine, you and your child don’t have to leave the comfort of home. The Cool Kidz Pediatrics team ensures patient confidentiality via all telemedicine appointments.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Some of the numerous reasons you might choose telemedicine appointments over in-person visits with Cool Kidz Pediatrics include:

  • Time savings
  • Travel cost savings
  • No sick patient exposure
  • Convenience
  • Quality care
  • Patient confidentiality

Your child or teen might feel more comfortable speaking with a pediatrician from the comfort of home rather than in person, especially if they’re feeling ill.

What should I expect during telemedicine appointments?

During scheduled telemedicine appointments with Cool Kidz Pediatrics, your child’s provider speaks with you and your child via video chat. They review your child’s or teen’s medical history and ask about symptoms they have and the medications they take.

Pediatricians can examine your child via your phone, computer, tablet, or another electronic device. They can offer treatment recommendations during telemedicine appointments, though sometimes your child might require in-person diagnostic testing that includes a throat or nasal swab, urine test, blood test, X-rays, or other imaging procedures.

Which treatment might my child need?

The Cool Kidz Pediatrics team personalizes each treatment based on your child’s unique needs and preferences. Your child’s treatment for an illness might simply include getting plenty of rest and watchful waiting. Their pediatrician may also suggest:

  • Antibiotics
  • Other medications
  • Resting or icing an injury
  • Allergy or asthma treatment
  • Further diagnostic testing
  • Physical therapy
  • Behavioral change counseling
  • Eating disorder treatment
  • Vaccinations

Cool Kidz Pediatrics providers might recommend your child see a pediatrician in-person when necessary, but they can treat numerous illnesses and diseases (including writing prescriptions) via telemedicine in many cases. The team can also refer out to highly-trained specialists as needed.

The next time your child requires medical evaluation but you’re most comfortable meeting with a pediatrician via virtual telemedicine, schedule an appointment with Cool Kidz Pediatrics over the phone or online.
