The provider is able to look at your child, manage symptoms and talk to the parent in the comfort of your home.  All you have to do is download the TytoCare App.  Please click here for instructions.  *You do not need to purchase a TytoHome Device to have a virtual visit.

remote virtual exam is a diagnostic remote exam.  Powered by TytoCare, the TytoHome Exam Kit allows your Allied provider to treat some of the most common conditions, including colds, ear infections, sore throat, fever, cough, congestion, and rashes – all while patients remain comfortable at home. To follow instructions on how to use the TytoHome Device, please click here .
