Due to the current health concerns regarding the coronavirus, Goldsboro, Mt. Olive, Princeton and LaGrange Pediatrics have changed how we see patients in an effort to protect our patients, staff, and extended families. During this time we are doing all we can to minimize you and your child’s exposure outside of your home. For that reason we have implemented virtual visits for a number of sick appointment types. Not all visits can be completed by video and some still require an in-person physical examination or labs, but many can be virtual. Please call our office to speak with one of our appointment staff to determine if a virtual visit may be appropriate for your child.

How to do a Virtual Appointment?

  • 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.
