Telemedicine Services for Children in Cumming, Johns Creek, Suwanee & Beyond
Telemedicine enables patients and their families to manage medical care in the way that best suits their busy schedules. Telemedicine is not intended to replace in-person medical care.
Parents or older children can manage health records from their phone or computer. Patients and parents can view up-to-date health information, test results (accessible 24 hours a day), medication reminders and other key data. It is also possible to contact your child’s primary physician or a nurse for non-urgent questions and receive a response within 24–48 hours.
What to Expect From a Telehealth Visit
A telehealth visit provides the same high level of care you can expect from an in-person appointment. After downloading the healow app from the App Store or Google Play Store, parents can then schedule a virtual call with a pediatric doctor.
During the call your pediatrician will discuss symptoms, and depending on the illness may conduct a physical exam using video or the image tool within the healow app. This process can determine the cause of their symptoms, such as a skin rash resulting from allergies.
Subsequently, your pediatric doctor can evaluate your child’s illness, providing recommendations that could include a prescription for medication, a further appointment at our Cumming office, or a referral to a specialist.
Of course, there are times where telemedicine will not be appropriate. Severe injuries, breathing issues, cuts that may need stitches, lumps and anything else that requires a hands-on examination will also require an in-person visit.
Common Questions About Telemedicine
Telemedicine is available using a smartphone, tablet or computer, along with a stable internet connection. Simply download the healow app for your smartphone, or use the patient portal to access your child’s patient information.
A remote visit can cover a wide range of illnesses including colds, fever, skin rashes, diarrhea, sore throats, coughs and more. If your pediatrician wants to see your child at our Cumming office, an in-person appointment can be arranged.
The main advantages of telemedicine include fast access to specialist pediatricians, not needing transportation, not missing work, reduced chances of your child picking up an illness and so on.
