Triage services are available 24/7 by calling our Goldsboro office at 919-734-4736.

 

Well Visit/Physical Scheduling

It is important for children to continue to receive their well visits and immunizations during this time to avoid other very serious illnesses.  This is especially true for infants under 18 months of age.  We have made special accommodations to see you as safely as possible so please continue to attend these appointments. If you have any concerns, please call any of our offices for assistance.

 

Telehealth Visit Scheduling

If your child is sick and needs to be seen, we’re still here for you.  Some patients, due to condition or illness, are not suited for telehealth and we recommend being seen in person. If you have any questions about telehealth, please call any of our offices for assistance.  For more information, visit our telehealth information page.

 

Behavioral Health Visits

We are now providing Behavioral Health care by telehealth as well as in person at the Goldsboro office. If you have any questions about your Behavioral Health visit, please call our Goldsboro office for assistance.

 

We thank you again for your patience during this time. We are doing our best to adapt how we provide care to make everyone feel comfortable during this COVID-19 crisis. If you have any questions, please call any of our offices. As always, should you have a medical emergency, please dial 911 immediately.

 

 

Thank you,

Goldsboro Pediatrics, PA

How to do a Virtual Appointment?

  • Call your local office to schedule an appointment for a virtual visit.
  • Once an appointment has been scheduled, one of our clinical team will call you before your appointment time to discuss the details of your child’s visit.
  • When it is time for your appointment – Connect to our virtual clinic using the link provided in the pre-visit text message.
  • Tips for a successful virtual appointment:
    • Be sure you are in a quiet location, preferably at your home, with good internet service and low background noise.
    • The child should be present for most telehealth appointments. Please have them in the room and/or nearby for the physician to visually examine the patient.
    • It is helpful to have a flashlight ready so the physician can see the child’s mouth or look at a specific body part.
  • If this is the first time you have had a virtual visit, watch this video and review these Tips for a Great Call before your appointment.
  • Other helpful links.

From your child’s first days, through all the changes of growth, we are your trusted partner during difficult times.
