Telemedicine: Getting Pediatric Care During A Crisis
Getting great pediatric care for your child can be challenging, even under the best of circumstances; but what about during a crisis? Wouldn’t it be nice to know you can access the services of a pediatrician anytime? The good news is, telemedicine makes it possible.
The pediatricians at Riverside Pediatrics, LLC offer telemedicine services to provide pediatric care during a crisis. They have offices in Greenwich, and New Canaan, Connecticut to help you and your child.
Telemedicine has revolutionized medicine, especially pediatric care. You may not always want or be able to bring your child in to visit a doctor. Infants and children are two of the most vulnerable age groups, uniquely susceptible to contagious illnesses. When you are able to access pediatric care through a telemedicine appointment, you don’t have to put your child at risk.
All you need is a telephone and an internet connection, and you and your child will be directed to a virtual waiting room. You can contact your pediatrician via online chat, for medical issues like these:
- Rashes or other skin irritations
- Eczema or acne
- Skin lacerations, blisters, or bites
- Allergies or pink eye
- Nausea or vomiting
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Cold or flu symptoms
- Lab testing or x-ray review
You can also access telemedicine for medication consultation, nutritional and dietary counseling, some behavioral issues, and other concerns.
Telemedicine questions can also be about caring for your newborn or toddler. You may have questions about lactation, prenatal care, your child’s sleeping habits, and other aftercare issues.
