Telehealth Sick Appointments

Natural Choice Pediatrics is one of the first and only integrative and holistic pediatric primary care clinics to offer insurance-covered telehealth visits in the state of Texas. 

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is a video appointment directly with one of our practitioners using your smartphone or computer that will allow us to conduct your sick visits remotely so you can be seen from the comfort of your own home. 

Telehealth allows our practitioners to screen and assess various ailments, including symptomatic COVID-19 patients, without having them physically come into the office.

We are checking the temperature of every person before they come into our office and with Telehealth visits we can achieve our goal to only see well checks in the office. Therefore, you can feel confident that our office is a safe environment for you and your family.

Insurance and self-pay are both accepted for Telehealth visits.

New patients must register to create a patient portal prior to requesting a telehealth visit.

 

Call the front office or request an appointment through your patient portal.

 

Telehealth is available Monday through Friday during normal business hours only. 

 

Telehealth for New Patients

New patients must register prior to scheduling any well-check, in-office sick or telehealth sick visit.

Existing and registered new patients may request a telehealth visit by calling the office or through their patient portal.

The following types of visits are available for Telehealth:

  • Fever, cough/colds, nasal congestion, sinus infections
