We are excited to offer members of Petite Pediatrics the option of a Virtual Visit, as well as some high-touch virtual features such as secure text messaging, online appointment scheduling and refill requests.
We use Spruce Telemedicine for all of our Virtual Visits and can assure families that this is the most secure way to communicate with your providers.
