Telehealth | Hyde Park Pediatrics

We’re doing everything that we can to keep you safe. Part of our safety plan includes implementation of online virtual visits with live interactive video between you and your provider. Visits are completely secure and can be conducted on any cellular data or wifi (preferred) enabled smartphone or tablet–not a laptop. To schedule a virtual visit you must have an active MyChart account. If you do not have an active account, PLEASE call the office to schedule your virtual visit.  

  • Virtual visit instructions
  • We recommend that you use a smartphone or tablet. Both Apple (iPhone, iPad) and Android (Fire tablet, other Smartphones) are supported
  • You will need to have a MyChart account and the MyChart app and Zoom app downloaded.
  • You MUST have these applications installed if you plan on using a smartphone or tablet. It will not work through a browser on these devices.
  • You can also use a laptop or any desktop computer that has internet, a camera, and a speaker/microphone, but security on these devices can sometimes cause problems with virtual visits.
  • Here is a tip sheet on How to set up your smartphone for virtual visits.

 

Preparing for a Visit
