Telemedicine: Getting Pediatric Care During A Pandemic

Finding medical help during the COVID-19 Pandemic could be immensely challenging. Fortunately, there is a technology that allows remote access to physicians: telemedicine. Here at the Pediatric Associates of Lawrenceville LLC in Lawrenceville, GA, your pediatrician offers telemedicine consultations from the comfort of your own home.

Understanding Telemedicine

Telemedicine is the use of technology that enables remote healthcare. It allows physicians to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients remotely using telecommunications technology as a computer, tablet, or smartphone. This virtual office visit can be a great alternative to the traditional in-person visit, especially during a crisis. Some advantages unique to Pediatric Associates of Lawrenceville LLC are:

  1. Convenient: Some patients of Pediatric Associates of Lawrenceville LLC need to travel long distances. Virtual visits eliminate the need to travel. Now they can just log into their device with no travel time.
  2. More Informative: In certain situations, our providers are able to observe and evaluate your child’s behavior more accurately in their secure home environment.  Additionally, due to social distancing and the use of face masks during in-person visits, our providers would not be able to observe your child’s facial expressions and would be less comfortable and at times could be stressful.
  3. Flexible: Appointment availability is much more flexible now than ever.
  4. Cost-Effective: Pediatric Associates of Lawrenceville LLC is currently offering reduced prices during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  5. Secure and Confidential: The telemedicine platform is HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant to protect the sensitive information of our patients.
    During a crisis, this type of medical service delivery can provide the distinct advantage of having access to quality healthcare without leaving the comfort and security of your home.
