TELEMEDICINE | VIDEO VISITS
In order to reduce the risk of spread for coronavirus COVID-19, The Rubin Center for Autism and Developmental Pediatrics is only conducting
VIDEO VISITS AND CONSULTATIONS
from the comfort and security of your home via interactive video visits through HIPAA-compliant, telemedicine.
how does it work?
The use of electronic communications to deliver care to patients across broad geographic areas.
The visit will be scheduled and conducted in much the same way as a usual on-site visit, which begins with a parent interview, followed by an interview and interaction with your child and a ‘virtual’ examination primarily though observation and the performance of requested tasks.
We will create a video connection with you and your family, by using the your own personal electronic device, such as cell phone, laptop or tablet – combinations may be used at the same time to assist in communicating visual images (still or movie) while continuing conversations.
To schedule and appointment or to discuss your options, please contact our practice manager
Benefits of Video Visits:
Less stress for the kids to leave their activities to come to our office
No need to battle Atlanta traffic and saves travel time anyway
It is so nice to see the children in their own home environments
Everyone seems to be much more relaxed
The children have enjoyed the novelty of talking to me on video and when they are done they can go back to their activities
Parents can provide height and weight measurements so that I can get a good sense of their growth
I can interact with the children, have them perform some tasks , observe their performance and get a good sense of their overall neurological function
If there are any medical problems or health concerns, I can review their medical records and discuss the concerns with their doctors
We are still able to discuss parents’ concerns and together develop strategies for making progress
As usual we have the developmental and behavioral assessments for children at the first visits and, where necessary and appropriate, for follow up visits
An unexpected benefit of the video visits it that we can see families from anywhere in the country and it is as if we are in the same room!
