Thanks to innovations in digital technology and medicine, you can talk to your doctor or pediatrician online from home! You won’t have to leave your house at all and your child can get basic care anytime. You’ll be able to speak with a pediatrician about any health concerns you have about your child, and the pediatrician can provide a number of treatment services too. This is called telemedicine.
Actually, telemedicine describes the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients via telecommunications technologies like the phone. Telemedicine allows patients to stay at home but still have access to healthcare, including pediatric care. There are lots of benefits of telemedicine, like easy access to healthcare, reduced healthcare costs, and more. Patients can communicate with doctors via any telecommunications service like phone, email, or even live online chat. When a patient uses email or online chat, this form of telemedicine is virtual telemedicine.
Here at Julia Barriga, M.D. P.A., we provide pediatric care in-person or with any kind of telemedicine. This means you can visit us in-person, call us, email us, or chat online with us. You’ll be able to speak with a fully capable pediatrician who can provide advice, diagnosis, and even some treatments, like a prescription for a medication. We can help your child or newborn if he or she has a minor injury or illness, or any symptoms you aren’t sure about, and we can even help children with chronic conditions like asthma.
So long as your child’s condition is minor and not life-threatening, you’ll be able to discuss it with a pediatrician via telemedicine. Please remember that whenever a health condition is serious and life-threatening, or if you’re not sure whether a condition could be life-threatening, you must call 911. Only the ER (emergency room) can help in these instances. However, if your child’s condition is not life-threatening, it’s actually better to contact urgent care instead. This is because urgent care will be able to help your child much more quickly, especially if you choose telemedicine.
With Julia Barriga, M.D. P.A., via telemedicine, one of our pediatricians can discuss and help with conditions or symptoms like:
• Fever (fever in newborns requires emergency care, however)
