Telemedicine appointments are available for patients with specific health care issues.
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Spokane Pediatrics providers will be offering telemedicine appointments. You will need to download the telemedicine consent form (link to consent form below), sign and post a picture of it to your child's patient portal. If you do not have a patient portal, please call our office to enroll in the portal (if you have let your password link expire we can help with that too!). If your child is 13 years or older or you would prefer to not use the patient portal, and would like to sign up for telemedicine, please download a consent form and email (firstname.lastname@example.org), mail, or fax it to our office. Please confirm with your insurance provider that telemedicine visits are covered under your policy.
Please note that Telemedicine appointments will be scheduled during certain times of the day, so please call our office to schedule an appointment first. There are now two ways to have a telemedicine appointment! You can either request to have a text sent to you by your provider when they are ready to begin your telemedicine appointment or use the link below (taking you to your providers virtual "waiting room"). Please let our schedulers know which way you would like your appointment scheduled. You will find the link to the telemedicine consent form.
TIPS for a Successful Telemedicine Appointment:
Lighting is important! Be in a well lit room, by a window or with a lamp in front of you
Have the following handy: a recent weight for your child, a temperature taken with your thermometer, a flashlight, a current list of medications and allergies, paper and pen- to take notes with.
Things you will likely be asked: When did it start? When did it worsen? Where does it hurt? What makes it worse or better? Have you tried any at-home treatments? What worries you the most?
If you are scheduled for a Telemedicine Med Check (ADHD/Anxiety/Depression) you may be asked to complete a screening form (links are below).
