Our virtual pediatricians are here to provide online health care to your children and teens.

We know that the coronavirus has certainly impacted our lives and normal routine; however, there are moments, even now, when your child may deal with a fever, widespread rash or other problem that warrants seeing our Greenwich, CT, pediatricians Dr. Karen Beckman and Dr. Alejandro Mones. Don’t worry; you can still turn to our pediatricians and you don’t even have to leave the house.

What are the Advantages of Telehealth?

Telemedicine from Riverside Pediatrics, LLC offers parents and families living in Greenwich and New Canaan with peace of mind, knowing that they can contact a pediatrician for care. 

Telemedicine makes it easier and more convenient to follow-up with a pediatrician while your child is undergoing treatment or has just undergone surgery. This also allows parents to be able to get their questions and concerns about their child’s health addressed.

When is Telehealth Used?

These virtual visits with our pediatric team can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of symptoms and problems without having to come into the office. These minor problems include:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Strains and sprains
  • Colds, flus, and respiratory infections
  • Stomachaches and abdominal pain
  • Bowel changes (e.g. diarrhea; constipation)
  • Rashes
  • Bug bites and insect stings
  • Conjunctivitis (e.g. pink eye)
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Cuts and open wounds

We can also assess how certain medications are working and determine if your child could benefit from a different medication or needs a refill on a current prescription.

What about Wellness Checkups?

Newborns and infants require regular well-baby visits throughout the first few years of life. These appointments are crucial for monitoring their health and development, and also providing them with immunizations to protect them from serious and life-threatening diseases.

Our pediatricians understand that nothing is more important than keeping up with these visits, which is why our New Canaan, CT, office is temporarily serving as a well-baby visit office during the pandemic.

With two office locations, Riverside Pediatrics, LLC is the premier pediatric team serving Riverside, New Canaan, and Greenwich, CT. To schedule a telemedicine appointment, call our Greenwich office at (203) 629-5800 or our New Canaan, CT, office at (203) 920-1675.
