NEW - Telemedicine visits!

Bethesda Pediatrics is now scheduling telemedicine appointments! Telemedicine appointments are virtual visits conducted over remote, secure, HIPAA compliant video conferencing. This appointment type is best for a concern or issue that does not require a thorough physical exam. Many acute illnesses and conditions (such as pinkeye, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, rashes, simple injuries and wounds), developmental and behavioral health concerns, and long term medication management (such as ADD/ADHD) can all be evaluated this way. We can help you decide if a virtual visit is right for you. Well child exams cannot be conducted via telemedicine.

It is important to note that since we are licensed to practice in Maryland, you and your child must also be located within Maryland at the time of the virtual visit.

A virtual visit essentially works the same as a face to face visit. You will be given an appointment and will then receive an email from our office with a link to be connected to the physician. Instead of checking in at the front desk, you would call the office 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to verify insurance and make your copay, if not already done at the time of scheduling. At the appointed time, click on the link provided in the email to enter our virtual waiting room. Please enter the PATIENT'S NAME instead of your own name when prompted. When your physician is available and sees that you are ready, they will initiate the connection.

If possible, we ask that you have a current weight and temperature. Many medications in pediatrics are dosed based on weight.
