Telemedicine Option

We are excited to introduce Telemedicine virtual visits to our practice via the anytime pediatrics portal.  We remain committed to providing the best quality care for our patients both during this Coronavirus pandemic and now have this option available for patients who are unable to see us in the office.  Our physicians are now available to connect with you at home using your computer, tablet or smartphone via the AnyTime Pediatrics iOS or Android app. Please take a moment to register your children using our practice code 2727. If you would like to schedule a telemedicine visit, please contact our office at 727-323-2727 so we can set up an appointment for you.  Most insurance companies are now providing telemedicine benefit coverage similar to in office visits.

How can we get through this together?

We are continuing to conduct well visits as it is important to keep your children up to date on vaccines and other well care to keep them safe and healthy. We have “well only” patient rooms set aside. In addition, whenever possible please only bring the patient being seen and one parent.  We are happy to have the other parent join the appointment via speaker phone or FaceTime.

We are asking all families to wait in their car and call us upon arrival to the office so we can escort your child directly to a cleaned patient room.  If available, please have your child and parent wear a mask when visiting the office. You will find our office staff all wearing masks to protect our health and yours!

In Sickness and in Health!
