Medical Advice By Phone
Do you have a question about your child’s health but aren’t sure that you can make it into the office? Telemedicine is a great option for many people who have questions about their child’s health when they’re on vacation or simply can’t make it into the office.
Over video conference, Dr. Moemeka will perform an examination like usual, speak with you and your child, and prescribe any necessary prescriptions that she can reasonably prescribe over video conference. Telemedicine makes staying healthy convenient. Whether you’re at home, on vacation, or too sick to come in, telemedicine can put Dr. Moemeka’s care directly in your hands.
If you have a question about your child’s health late at night, early in the morning, or on a Sunday afternoon, Dr. Moemeka is here for you and your family. Our philosophy is rooted in the verse from the book of Mark.
“Whoever receives a child in my name receives me”
– Mark 9:37
