Some parents are suspicious of technology when it comes to telemedicine. In this episode we discuss the role that telemedicine has played during the COVID-19 pandemic, how to successfully use telehealth to augment your child’s medical care including indications for virtual vs. in-person visits, and share tips on optimizing your tele-experiences. We also address the safety of returning to in-office care.
