Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine services offer you face-to-face access with your pediatrician for routine health checks and sick visits through online technologies or phone calls.

The telemedicine services Virginia Pediatric Group offers ensure you can reach your child’s pediatrician from wherever you are, even if you are unable to travel to the office. You can use your smartphone, computer, or tablet to meet with your pediatrician during your scheduled time.

Through video conferencing, you get to see your pediatrician, and they can see you and your child, to discuss new symptoms or health concerns your child is experiencing.

When can I schedule a telemedicine visit?

You can schedule a telemedicine visit to address a variety of conditions or medical purposes when you can not meet in the office due to travel constraints, illness, or a busy schedule.

You might schedule a telemedicine visit to get help with:

  • Rashes
  • Allergies
  • Vomiting
  • Minor cuts
  • Pink eye
  • Colds and flu
  • Skin conditions
  • Breastfeeding
  • Food and nutrition issues
  • Medication management
  • Behavioral health follow-ups

The Virginia Pediatric Group providers also offer telemedicine appointments for prenatal visits, well-child checkups, and to review the results of X-rays and other diagnostic tests.

What can I expect during a telemedicine visit?

When you schedule your telemedicine appointment, a Virginia Pediatric Group medical assistant will help you measure your child’s height and weight. They also discuss some background information about your child’s health and your family medical history.

During your scheduled appointment time, you log in to your account and meet with your pediatrician via the easy-to-use Anytime Pediatrics telemedicine platform on your phone or computer. The provider can discuss your child’s specific needs and determine if they need an in-office visit or any diagnostic testing.

If your child needs a refill on a prescription, the providers can deliver it electronically to your pharmacy or mail it to your home.

When your child needs a behavioral or mental health evaluation, you can expect to schedule your initial visit in the office. However, they can continue to monitor your child’s progress with treatment through the telemedicine platform.
