Now offering remote COVID-19 screening for kids
Is it a cold, the flu or something more concerning? As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread throughout the United States, our team at Pediatric Specialist of Plano is taking steps to protect our patients and our staff. Remote COVID-19 screening for children, in coordination with Children’s Health℠ Virtual Care, is just one of these measures.
Without leaving the comfort and safety of your home, you can speak with a specialist at Children’s Health Virtual Care. As you discuss the symptoms your child is having, you’ll learn what steps you should take next. If a test for COVID-19 is needed, Children’s Health will refer you to call one of our pediatricians for testing orders and evaluation.
The remote screening process is simple
We know that it’s a stressful and uncertain time right now, so we’re striving to make it as easy as possible to get COVID-19 screening. If you feel this service would be helpful for your child, you can access the web portal or download the mobile app at www.childrens.com/virtualvisit.
Should the screening indicate that further testing is required, our Plano pediatricians and staff will guide you through each step. Please do NOT physically go to the office. We will provide specific guidance about what you should do over the phone. Learn more about our telemedicine appointments.
