During this unprecedented time, in order to provide our families with safe, comprehensive care, any medical calls that are provided may be transitioned to a telemed/telehealth visit. These visits are subject to a claim being sent through your insurance company. It is our practices goal to provide quality pediatric care with minimal risks.

High Point Pediatrics Virtual Visits
High Point Pediatrics is now offering virtual visits for many concerns such as:
- Behavioral and mental health
- ADHD medication refills
- Cold symptoms without fever

Please call our office at (336) 889-6564 to set up an appointment if you believe your child is experiencing any of these concerns
and could be seen via a virtual visit. Virtual visits require access to a phone, smart device, or computer. Virtual visits are billable through insurance.
SICK VISIT UPDATE:
We are still seeing sick children in the afternoon. Currently, our office is fully stocked with rapid strep throat tests, rapid flu tests, and respiratory viral panel tests to see if your child is positive for any of these illnesses.
We have had some questions regarding the RVP or respiratory viral panel. The RVP checks for different viral illnesses that could be causing your child to have fever, body aches, chills, headache, sore throat, cough, congestion, nasal drainage, and other symptoms. The RVP takes approximately 1-hour to run and to determine your child’s results. It does not test for coronavirus or covid-19, but this test greatly helps our providers further clarify your child’s illness. If the RVP is positive for a viral illness, then we can safely say that your child does not have covid-19. Most insurance companies are paying for these tests.
High Point Pediatrics is happy to serve your child if they are feeling sick and we are working diligently to ensure that our office is safe and effective to meet your child’s needs during this time. Please call our office to schedule an appointment and don’t forget that we are doing virtual visits for a variety of illnesses.
