Telemedicine Q & A
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine uses the power and convenience of video conferencing to give you access to medical services.
Dr. Stein uses a secure, easy-to-download program. All you need is a reliable internet connection, computer or tablet, and a private room, and you can meet with Dr. Stein from your home or office.
What services are available through telemedicine?
Dr. Stein offers a comprehensive range of medical services through telemedicine. While some tests and treatments must be performed in the office, you can access almost every service you and your family might need.
Dr. Stein provides pediatric check-ups and developmental evaluations through telemedicine. She can observe your child and talk to you about their health and behavior. She can answer any questions and provide personalized recommendations to protect and enhance your child's health.
Dr. Stein offers telemedicine sick visits to diagnose your child's illness and prescribe treatment. She sends any necessary prescriptions directly to your pharmacy to limit the number of trips you need to make.
If your child has a chronic health condition like asthma, allergies, or diabetes, Dr. Stein offers chronic care appointments to monitor your child's health and symptoms. She can renew prescriptions and adjust treatment plans as needed.
If you and your family plan on traveling internationally, you might need additional vaccines before you go. You can schedule an online travel consultation and talk to Dr. Stein about your needs before making an appointment for your treatment. Many vaccinations require multiple doses, so schedule your travel consultation several months before you plan to travel.
What are the benefits of telemedicine?
Telemedicine is convenient, cost effective, and safe. You don't have to worry about taking time off to bring your child to their appointment, fighting traffic, or finding parking.
You can schedule a telemedicine appointment at your convenience and meet with Dr. Stein from the comfort of your own home or another location.
In addition to saving time, telemedicine can save you money. You don't need to pay for gas, parking, or other transportation services. You also save on additional or elder care services.
Telemedicine can protect your family's health. If your child is sick, their immune system is compromised. While the team at Dr. Stein's office adheres to strict cleaning regimes, spending time in a public place can expose your child to other germs or spread their illness to others.
If you're interested in scheduling a telemedicine appointment for your child, call Sima Stein, MD, or book your appointment online today.
