Telemedicine Update August 2021

The past 18 months have forced all of us to adopt new ways of connecting with our families and our communities. This has included Springdale-Mason Pediatrics introducing Telemedicine visits via an easy to use and HIPAA-compliant web platform. During the COVID pandemic, we have found this to be a safe and convenient way to continue to provide medical care to our patients and families. However, it is not a perfect substitute for an in-office visit in many different ways. With the arrival of COVID vaccines for our providers, staff, families, and many patients, we have moved back to seeing most patients in the office. We can even provide COVID testing in our office for symptomatic patients. We do continue to provide Telemedicine visits when that is the best option, which might include mental health visits or visits for our college-aged patients who are away at school within the state of Ohio (current regulations limit telemedicine visits to when both the patient and provider are both in Ohio). Please call our office to discuss appointment options, and as always, stay healthy and stay safe!
