Sick Kid? Talk to a Doctor Right Away.
“As a nurse and a mother with two kids, ACCESS to great healthcare is important to me. To me ACCESS, is safe, quality, timely, affordable, and efficient care that works for my family’s schedule.
My son, Keaton, woke up on January 1, 2017 with the classic signs and symptoms of strep throat. By simply using Teladoc on my smart phone, I was able to create my son’s profile, share his medical history, and request an immediate appointment. Within minutes, a physician called us. He did a great job of asking detailed questions to clinically assess Keaton. I even uploaded a photo of Keaton’s throat to share with the doctor. Within minutes of his diagnosis, a prescription was called to the pharmacy of our choice and off I went to pick it up.
New Year’s resolutions often focus on health and wellness. Thank you Silver Cross for partnering with Teladoc and starting our year off right with another unrivaled healthcare experience.”
