Fred Co Kids has begun using “Telemedicine”! What is that, you ask? Telemedicine consists of the parent and child staying home and video conferencing with one of our clinicians. We are scheduling these visits just like an appointment. We are using Doxy.me, which is free, does not require any downloads and no need to create a username or password. A link with instructions will be emailed or texted to you once the appointment is made.
Not all types of appointments can be done using telemedicine. We all realize that the physical exam done by a provider is crucial for making some types of diagnosis. However, we are pleased to offer telemedicine for all types of appointments that make sense.
We are currently doing telemedince visits for the following examples. Please call to speak with our nurses who will determine the best type of appointment for your child.
-Rashes (including diaper rash)
-Gastrointestinal concerns (stomach pain, vomiting, going too much, not going enough, reflux, etc.)
-Feeding questions or concerns
-Cough alone / mild respiratory symptoms
-Fever for 48+ hours for children 2 years old and under
–Fever for 72+ hours for children older than 2 years
-Anxiety / behavioral concerns / mental health consultation
-ADHD med checks / follow-ups
Please call our office to schedule and get connected with us via telehealth!
