When your child is sick or time constraints make it challenging to get to the doctor’s office, telemedicine can help your child get the health care services they need. The board-certified team at Nevada Pediatric Specialists in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, offers telemedicine services via a secure video conferencing service so your child can see their provider from the convenience and comfort of their home. Call Nevada Pediatric Specialists, or schedule a telemedicine appointment online today.
Telemedicine allows the team at Nevada Pediatric Specialists to offer many medical services through a secure video conference program. You and your child need to be in a private room and have a reliable internet connection to use telemedicine services.
Telemedicine services are similar to an in-office appointment, but your provider cannot perform physical checks, like listening to your child’s heart and lungs, that you might have during an in-office appointment.
Nevada Pediatric Specialists uses telemedicine for the following:
If your child is not feeling well, the last thing you want to do is take them out in public, and into a waiting room at a doctor’s office. A telemedicine appointment allows your provider to evaluate your child’s symptoms and recommend treatment. If necessary, your provider can call in a prescription to your pharmacy or schedule an in-office appointment for a strep test or other lab tests.
If your child has attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or another behavioral health condition, they need to see their health care provider from time-to-time so they can observe their behaviors and see how the treatment is working. Instead of trying to schedule an in-office appointment, potentially missing school or work, and dealing with traffic, you and your child can meet with your provider online.
The team at Nevada Pediatric Specialists also offers medication management appointments. For example, if your child takes medication for asthma or a condition like ADHD, your provider needs to see them from time to time to ensure that the medication is working before renewing their prescription.
Telemedicine provides convenient health care that can save your family time and money. For example, if your child feels sick, the team at Nevada Pediatric Specialists can provide a same-day telemedicine appointment, which can help you avoid time-consuming and costly trips to the emergency room.
You do not need to take time off of work, and your child does not need to miss school for a telemedicine appointment. You do not need to spend time driving across town for your appointment, and while Nevada Pediatric Specialists keep their waiting room times short, you do not need to wait at all with telemedicine.
