No matter where you are, you can rely on us for dependable pediatric care using our telehealth services. Our physicians consult with you via video conferencing to evaluate conditions, manage symptoms, and advise you on proper care—no office visit required!
How Does Pediatric Telehealth Work?
Patients can connect with their doctor virtually through the patient portal. Similar to a FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom call, simply log into your patient portal to get started!
What Can My Pediatrician Evaluate:
- Asthma control education
- Behavioral health
- Breastfeeding support
- Colds and other minor illnesses
- Constipation, diarrhea, or vomiting
- COVID-19 (coronavirus symptoms)
- Minor trauma screening (cuts, abrasions, animal bites)
- Nutrition support
- Pink eye
And much more!
The Pediatric Telehealth Process
Step One – Open your patient portal account on your laptop or desktop
Step Two – Tap “find appointments” and select the type of physician you would like to see along with the reason for the visit
Step Three – Tap “show appointments” and then click on the “online” tab to see available Athena Telehealth appointments
Please tap on the calendar icon to select a date
Step Four – Select the date and time of your appointment
For online appointments, you will see a physician icon with a smaller green camera icon next to it indicating that these are available Athena Telehealth appointments.
Step Five – Review the required patient information fields before tapping “schedule appointment” to book your appointment
You are able to then add your appointment to either your Outlook, Google, or iOS calendar. Please note, if availability is not seen for your primary care physician, please call the office to schedule your telehealth visit.
Preparing For Your Telehealth Visit:
Once your pediatric telehealth appointment is created, you will receive two links. The first link will be a pre-registration and check-in link from Phreesia. The second link will be from athenaOne to either the phone number or e-mail on the account. This will be the link you will utilize for your telehealth appointment. The athenaOne link will bring you to the log in for the virtual waiting room before your telehealth appointment.
Once your in the virtual waiting room, your physician will be notified you are there and they will join for the consultation.
Daytime Visits: Monday – Friday 8:00 am to 6:30 pm
After-Hour Visits: Seven Days a Week 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm
To schedule an appointment during daytime hours, please call the office. To schedule an appointment after-hours, please call 833-269-2444.
After-Hours Telehealth Visits
After-hours telehealth visits are available seven nights a week with an Allied pediatrician from 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm. For technical issues or concerns, you can speak with a telehealth coordinator at 833-269-2444 any time after 6:30 pm.View Service
Infancy, childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood are delicate periods for a child. Well visits are an essential part to live a healthy life. It is important to keep up-to-date with your child’s visits and immunizations.
Routine Well Visits
Our pediatricians monitor your child’s growth to ensure they meet all milestones and benchmarks. We provide easy-to-follow care schedules for your child based on age, medical history, and other essential factors.
Well visits include:
- General screenings
- Lab work
When your child experiences a common illness, our pediatricians are available to treat your sick child as soon as possible in a compassionate, friendly environment. Patients can also access specialty clinicians should an illness require advanced diagnostic attention or care.
Immunizations and vaccinations are important to shield your little one against preventable diseases, such as whooping cough (pertussis) and measles, which can be extremely dangerous to your children. It is important to stay on top of your child’s immunization schedule by attending all your child’s well visits.
Minor Injury Care
Much like sickness, injuries tend to occur suddenly and without warning. If your child suffers a minor injury and requires medical attention, our pediatricians can apply the treatments needed for proper healing.View Service

Providing quality medical care for our patients is our primary concern; we are more than willing to provide that care within your insurance contract guidelines whenever possible if you let us know at each time of service what those guidelines are.
It is your responsibility, as the parent/insured, to be aware of the current terms of your insurance coverage. All copayments, by contract, must be paid at the time of your visit. We reserve the right to charge an additional service charge—currently $10.00—for any copay left unpaid on the date of service. If your yearly deductible has not been met, this must be paid at the time of your visit. If you do not have insurance, or insurance we participate in, payment is expected at the time of service. For your convenience, we accept cash, check or credit cards.
