Picture this: it’s just past 8 PM, and your child wakes up with a runny nose, fever, and terrible cough. Your first thought is to treat them with home remedies or over-the-counter medications. They fall back asleep, only to wake up an hour later with worsening symptoms. By 9 PM, your pediatrician’s office is closed, and you will likely speak with someone from a medical answering service. More than likely, you will be put on hold or promised a call back within the hour. As the minutes slowly tick by and your concerns mount, you decide to go to the emergency room.
What if this didn’t have to be the case? When your little one falls ill, the last thing you want to do is sit back and watch them suffer or wait until an unplanned trip to the emergency room is needed. That’s where virtual pediatric urgent care services become a convenient alternative to after-hours and ER visits. During a telemedicine consultation with Hello Pediatrics, we aim to make pediatric care more accessible during a time when you need it most. But, what conditions and symptoms can be evaluated virtually? Below our team sheds some light on pediatric telemedicine and what our urgent care clinicians can treat virtually.
