Whether it's a stuffy nose, cut on their knee, or anything in between, part of a child's development is picking up bumps and bruises along the way.
Rochester Regional Health is utilizing telemedicine services to continue to see patients during the COVID-19 outbreak to ensure your child receives the care they need.
Telemedicine is available through the MyCare app, as well as through Facetime, Skype, Doximity and Doxy.me. Telemedicine gives patients and providers many benefits:
- Decreases foot traffic to prevent further community spread
- Ability to diagnose and treat conditions like ADHD, anxiety, depression, cough, fever, rashes, pink eye, and many more
- Can be as effective as an in-person visit at diagnosing
- Effectively used as a triage tool to determine the next course of action
- Can evaluate and manage patients with COVID-19
MyCare is a HIPPA-compliant app that offers personalized and secure online access to portions of your medical records at all of our hospitals and physician offices. MyCare allows patients to:
- View medical information
- Order medication refills
- View lab results
- Send non-urgent communications
To book a telemedicine appointment, please call your pediatrician’s office.

Well Visits and Vaccinations
Well visits and vaccinations are an essential part of assessing a child’s growth and development and ensuring health. Rochester Regional Health is continuing to see patients for well visits and vaccinations in office.
How it Works
In an effort to keep our young patients safe at all times, Rochester Regional Health is grouping well and sick patients by time of day, as well as utilizing alternate entrances and car side visits when appropriate.
Patients are being roomed immediately upon arrival, and we are following all CDC guidelines for cleaning, disinfecting, and masking at all locations for well visits, sick visits, and immunizations.
To book an appointment, please call your pediatrician’s office.
Behavioral Health Support for Kids
While parents are trying to catch up to new guidelines and terms like shelter in place, stay at home, quarantine, and self-isolation, some kids are struggling to understand their unique situation.
Adam Weis, MD, Pediatrician at Rochester Regional Health, says it’s important to talk to your children about COVID-19 and explain what some of these terms mean.
Dr. Weis says children who suffer from anxiety and need behavioral health support often haven’t developed the coping skills necessary to deal with stressful situations or big changes in their lives.
How it Works
To help parents and guardians of children who need behavioral health support, Rochester Regional Health’s Behavioral Health Clinics are accepting new patients and doing intakes via telephone, video, and in-person with strict disinfecting, masking, and social-distancing policies.
We continue to operate all levels of care, including:
- Health home care management
- Therapy services
- Psychiatric evaluation
- Home-based crisis intervention
