House Call Pediatric Urgent Care in Vail Valley

Welcome To Telemedicine From Pediatrician Next Door

Your Pediatrician Next Door is now pleased to offer you private, encrypted, HIPPA-compliant Pediatric Video Telemedicine Consults in addition to House Calls. It's a Virtual House Call! All you need is a computer or device (smartphone or tablet) with a camera and microphone.


Telemedicine is the use of technology that you probably have in your home or in your hand to allow you to see and hear your provider from a distant site.


Sometimes you have concerns about your child's health, and you just want to talk to a pediatric expert. 

  • "Is this normal?"
  • "Should we worry?"
  • "Do we need to take our child to the ER, to the pediatrician's office, or just wait this out?"


These are just some of the many parental questions and concerns that may be just right for a Telemedicine Consult with an experienced provider. Dr. Miranda may also be able to evaluate your child's general appearance, breathing rate, certain rashes and other skin conditions, appearance of the eyes, mouth and throat, and, yes, you can save that weird-looking diaper to share with him.


More importantly, Dr. Miranda may be able to alert you when a Telemedicine Consult is not appropriate and to help you seek the right level of care.

Documents

Via encrypted email (Proofpoint Essentials), we will send you a Visit Summary, a Patient Education handout (if there is a good one that applies to your situation), and a Superbill that you may submit to your health insurance provider if you so choose. In Colorado, Telemedicine encounters are generally reimbursed at the same level as in-person provider encounters; however, Dr. Miranda's services are considered to be out-of network by all insurance providers.

Invoice and Payment

We will email you an invoice that you can pay online by ACH or credit card. The paid invoice record will be your receipt.
