Virtual Primary Care for Your Child
The primary care industry is changing. After decades of paper charts and file folders, health care is quickly transitioning to a digital world. This change has been especially welcomed by patients who benefit from easily accessible appointments and location-independent care.
Virtual primary health care is one of the ways that the medical industry is adapting to the changing landscape. The idea is to provide primary care doctors with the time, space, and resources they need to provide better care to patients. This includes scheduling more appointments, focusing more on prevention, and spending more time with each patient.
Parents can rest easy knowing they have a doctor that is only a call away. In other cases, you may just need a doctor’s experience to help you treat an illness you’re unsure about. Other times, you know that an in-person doctor’s visit isn’t necessary, you just need confirmation from Dr. Hughes and a prescription to treat your child’s condition. DirectMD Virtual Primary Care provides all those services and more.
Common pediatric illnesses include:
- Skin Infections
- Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)
- Swimmer’s Ear
- Vomiting, Diarrhea, Constipation
