5 Reasons Every Family Needs a 24/7 Virtual Pediatrician

Until you have one, you don’t fully understand how impactful a virtual pediatrician can be for your family. Fewer in-person sick appointments and quick access to care for non-emergency needs from colds to pink eye to stomachaches and more can be a massive aid to any busy family unit.

At ParentMD, we’ve seen the impact our virtual care has had on our families, and we gathered five reasons every family needs a 24/7 virtual pediatrician here.

1. Get a better night’s sleep.

We’ve all lost sleep worrying because our child is sick and the doctor’s office is closed. You’ll get better sleep with the peace of mind that comes with a virtual care option for your child. No matter the time, you’ll have a board-certified pediatrician at your fingertips – ready to give your child the care they need within the hour. Limited access on weekends, holidays, or late nights is a thing of the past when you have a virtual pediatrician on call.

2. Save money. 

Things can get tricky when your child is sick, and you’re at work. We need them to feel better but taking half a day off to pick them up, drive them to the office for a visit, and then regroup afterward is a burden. The costs of a sick day add up. When you choose virtual pediatric care, you have a convenient option that can save your PTO, time, and money. The convenience factor means you can save time, money, and ultimately your sanity when your child needs medical care.

3. Avoid unnecessary doctor’s visits. 

Sometimes we make a visit to the doctor only to find out the illness our child is facing is viral, and there’s really nothing to be done except treat the symptoms. That’s only after packing up the car and a copay later. With a virtual pediatrician, you can avoid unnecessary visits. When you need to get seen by a doctor, you can save energy and do the visit virtually with no additional cost per visit.

4. Get unlimited visits with your subscription.

With a virtual pediatrician service through ParentMD, you can get as many visits as needed per family with a single subscription. Each visit to the doctor doesn’t come with a dollar sign. Instead, it’s a no-brainer to access the care you need when you need it.

5. It’s easy.

An easy win for the family can go a long way. 24/7 access to a virtual pediatrician can make caring for your child’s health that much simpler – and save you precious time and energy that can be put toward making memories.
