Welcome to Telemedicine Well Care!

Before your visit, print out the form that matches your child’s age form the list below. For example, if your child is 9 months old, select the 9 Month Wellness link. These are the same forms we have you fill out in the office.

Complete the forms and return them to the office via upload to your patient portal or fax. We do not recommend emailing personal health information, but contact the office if you need to do that at (925)939-7334.

On the day of the appointment, measure your child’s height, weight, and temperature. (Tip: When checking your child’s height, have your child stand with his/her feet together and make sure they are standing up straight. This will give a more accurate measurement.) Vision, hearing, lab work and immunizations will be scheduled separately.

To access the virtual appointment:
-Using a laptop or computer with a webcam, go to http://www.doxy.me/CasaVerdePediatrics with your Safari, Google Chrome, or Firefox browser. Maximize bandwidth by asking other members of the household to minimize streaming. You will see a welcome window pop-up asking you to enter your name and check-in. Please enter your child’s name and click “check-in.”
-Call the office at (925)939-7334 when you and your child are in the virtual waiting room so staff can let the doctor know that you are ready.
