What is TeleCare for Kids?

On-Call Pediatrician You Chat with by Video

How Does it Work?

Sign up securely on your computer, iPhone/iPad, or Android device. Once your information is entered, choose our convenient on-demand pediatric care or a scheduled consultation. Next:

  1. Live video chat with one of our Texas-based pediatricians.
  2. Our pediatrician will discuss the symptoms with you and your child. They can diagnose the issue and provide you with the next steps.
  3. Depending on the diagnosis, a doctor may even be able to write a prescription for needed medication and have it sent directly to your local pharmacy.

It’s as easy as seeing a pediatric-trained provider face-to-face over live video!
