Introducing Allied’s New and Improved Telehealth Program!
The doctors at Allied Physicians Group are committed to enhancing the lives of our patients and parents. We know you’re busy, and that getting to the doctor isn’t always easy, so we’re bringing our doctors to you. Introducing our new and improved telehealth visits via the Anytime Pediatrics app!
A telehealth visit is a consultation, health check, or sick visit with an Allied Physicians Group pediatrician via video conferencing. It is comparable to a FaceTime or Skype call using an iOS or Android device. The physician is able to look at your child, manage symptoms, and talk to you from anywhere you are.
