Can a virtual care physician prescribe medication?2020-12-29T23:15:03-05:00

Yes. A physician practicing virtual medicine can order medications, as well as order investigations such as blood work and imaging.

What conditions is virtual care good for?2020-12-29T23:15:31-05:00

Virtual care can help manage common health issues such as illness, minor trauma, and injuries, mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression, chronic health conditions, behavioral concerns in children, and even more complex heath conditions. Virtual medicine can decrease the need for an in-person visit for rash review and medication refills.

What is the difference between virtual healthcare and telemedicine/telehealth?2020-12-29T23:15:24-05:00

Virtual healthcare is the provision of real-time medical care via a mobile device.

Telemedicine/telehealth refers to the process of diagnosing and treating conditions remotely, while virtual healthcare encompasses not only the connection between patient and physician but also the on-demand access to a broad range of non-clinical or non-physician services.

For example, Kidcrew virtual care enables patients to access mental health care and therapy, in addition to physician services.

What is a medical virtual care visit?2020-12-19T23:15:06-05:00

Virtual doctor visits are simply doctor-patient meetings that happen over the phone or video call. With the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic, virtual visits with your pediatrician or physician are much safer.

When possible, a doctor visit by phone or video-call allows for easy and timely access to care, conveniently and safely, whether from home or work, and regardless of the time of day.

Kidcrew has pediatricians on call 7 days a week – weekdays, from 8 am to 8 pm, weekends 9 am to 3 pm. Same-day visits. Click to Book a Virtual Appointment.

What are the pros of virtual health care?2020-12-30T22:02:40-05:00

1. Virtual health care can lower healthcare costs
2. Increases efficiency
3. Provides patients better access to healthcare services
4. Healthier, happier patients
5. More convenient and accessible patient care
6. Access from remote areas
7. Can provide care to patients with decreased mobility
8. Helps reduce unnecessary emergency room visits
9. Quicker and more convenient access to a clinician
10. Increased engagement from patients which can encourage healthier behavior by patients.
11. Decreased barrier to care. Patients feel more empowered to seek advice from their healthcare practitioner as it is easier to reach them.
12. Improved prevention. Virtual care can lead to an assessment of early warning signs for illness and can enable follow up appointments to ensure improvement in health status.
13. Better quality of care. Patients can address health concerns quickly with real-time urgent consultations. This patient-centered care increases patient satisfaction.

How can virtual care alleviate mental health concerns?2020-12-29T23:12:31-05:00

There is a growing burden of mental health concerns amongst patients. Mental health and therapy services can be difficult to access, especially in remote or underserviced areas. In addition, many patients feel insecure about accessing mental health services due to the stigma associated with mental health challenges. Virtual mental health care can alleviate these concerns.

Does virtual health care save the patient money and time?2020-12-29T23:12:43-05:00

Yes. Accessing virtual healthcare minimizes the burden of missing work and school for healthcare visits. Barriers such as commute time, parking costs, and time away from work and school improve the patient experience and better value for your time.

What is COVID-19?2020-12-23T12:19:06-05:00

COVID-19 is a novel (new) coronavirus, as it had not been previously identified or seen in humans. There are many types of coronaviruses such as those that cause the common cold. COVID-19 is different from other common coronaviruses that cause the common cold.

Why is it called COVID-19?2020-12-23T12:19:19-05:00

In COVID-19, the ‘CO’ stands for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for disease. This virus was discovered in 2019. Before being named COVID-19, I was called the “2019 novel coronavirus” and “2019-nCoV”.

How does COVID-19 spread?2021-01-09T13:25:25-05:00

COVID-19 most commonly spreads between people in close contact (within 2 meters or 6 feet from one another). It spreads via respiratory droplets such as when a person talks, breathes, sings, coughs or sneezes. These droplets cannot be seen with the naked eye. They are inhaled into the nose or mouth of another person, and this leads to infection. These droplets can remain suspended in the air and can be inhaled by others who are farther away than 6 feet, such as during a sporting event or concert.

Droplets can live on surfaces. When a person touches a surface containing microscopic COVID-19, and then touches their own mouth, eyes or nose, the person may get infected.

What does ‘community spread’ mean?2020-12-23T12:19:50-05:00

Community spread means people are getting infected with the virus within one region or area. Many people are unaware of who they got COVID-19 from, or where. COVID-19 spreads easily in the community if not prevented.

How do masks help?2021-02-21T09:11:00-05:00

Masks offer some protection to the wearer and help prevent the spread of the virus from an asymptomatic mask wearer to others.

COVID-19 can be spread from people who do not know they have COVID-19. That is why we must all wear masks in public and maintain social distancing.

Masks provide a layer of protection, preventing our droplets from going into the air and infecting others.

Read our helpful article “How to Help Kids Wear Masks”

How do I ensure my mask is protective?2021-02-21T09:10:28-05:00

Masks worn by the public should be three layers of fabric, fit well to the face with no gaping, covering the nose and mouth and secured over the ear with loops or ties. Surgical masks and N-95 masks should be reserved for healthcare workers in high-risk situations.

Read our helpful article “How to Help Kids Wear Masks”

Should I avoid seeking medical care during the COVID-19 pandemic?2021-07-07T13:52:18-04:00

No. It is important to continue to receive care during this time.

Please continue to take your regular prescribed medications and maintain your treatment plan as directed by your healthcare provider. Ensure you have a 2-week supply of necessary medication.

Attend health care visits as directed by your provider.

Call your healthcare provider if you have concerns about your health or wellbeing. Your healthcare provider may offer virtual consultation to avoid a trip to the hospital or office.

Do not delay getting emergency care for emergencies.

If you have a medical emergency, call 911. Emergency rooms, hospitals, and clinics have infection prevention plans to keep you safe should you need in-person care.

Can I get COVID from mail and groceries?2020-12-23T16:11:32-05:00

There is still a lot that is unknown about COVID-19 and how it spreads.

Coronaviruses are thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Although the virus can survive for a short period on some surfaces, it is unlikely to be spread from domestic or international mail, products or packaging.

However, it may be possible that people can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

If you think that you or a family member might have COVID-19, you, or they, can complete a COVID-19 self-assessment:
COVID-19 SELF ASSESSMENT LINK

If you or a family member screens positive here, it is critical that you call 1-866-553-7205 to be screened and verify if you should attend an assessment center or self-isolate at home for 14 days.

Is it dangerous to wear my contact lenses?2020-12-23T16:11:39-05:00

There is no evidence that people who wear contact lenses are at increased risk of being infected with COVID-19.

Contact lens wearers should practice safe contact lens wear, as always, with diligent hand hygiene before touching lenses. Hydrogen peroxide bases for contact lens cleaning and storing should be effective at preventing COVID-19 infection.

A multi-purpose solution may not prevent COVID-19 infection.

Further data is needed.

Clean the surface under which you are handling your contact lenses before handling your contacts, should they drop.

Check out our COVID-19 Updates page for more up to date info and links.

What is the best way to clean my hands?2020-12-23T16:36:32-05:00

Washing your hands is the best way to clean your hands to protect you and your family from getting infections.

Wash every surface of your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Ensure you wash your hands after coughing, sneezing and using the washroom. Wash before eating and preparing food.

If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Ensure it has at least 60% alcohol.

CDC Hand Washing Guidelines
Check out these CDC links: Handwashing Guidelines and Hand Hygiene Recommendations.

What cleaning products kill COVID-19?2020-12-23T16:30:39-05:00

COVID-19 can spread from droplets that land on surfaces such as tables, light switches, countertops, handles, doorknobs, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets and faucets. Clean and disinfect these surfaces regularly.

To clean dirty surfaces, clean using soap and water or detergent. To disinfect, use a CDC recommended cleaner.

Hand washing
Here are CDC Handwashing links: Handwashing Guidelines and Hand Hygiene Recommendations.

Here is the CDC Guide to Disinfecting Your Home and includes lists of recommended cleaning products to use in the home.

What should I do if I or someone in my family gets COVID-19?2020-12-23T16:34:17-05:00

Stay at home unless you need medical care
• Use a separate bathroom and bedroom than other family members, when possible.
• If rooms or bathrooms are shared, disinfect often, being mindful not to touch potentially contaminated surfaces without gloves, and clean hands afterward.
• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer before eating or preparing food, after using the washroom, and after coughing or sneezing.
• Wear a disposable facemask if you live with other people and keep your distance.

When should I seek medical attention?2020-12-23T18:06:45-05:00

If you or a loved one has any of the following, seek emergency medical care as soon as possible.

• Difficulty breathing
• Chest pain or pressure
• Confusion
• Inability to stay alert or awake
• Lips turning blue
• You are concerned about your health and safety or that of a loved one

Do children get COVID-19?2020-12-23T18:06:54-05:00

Children can and do get infected with COVID-19.

Most children who get COVID-19 have no symptoms or mild symptoms and rarely do they get very sick or die.

Children with chronic health conditions and babies may be at higher risk of severe illness or death.

Some children develop a rare but dangerous disease called multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C) which has been linked to COVID-19 infection.

Read more on our COVID-19 Resource page.

What is multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C)?2020-12-23T18:07:00-05:00

Multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C) is a serious illness associated with COVID-19. Not every child with MIS-C tests positive for COVID-19. The lungs, heart, kidney, brain, eyes, intestine and skin can become inflamed.

Should children wear masks?2021-01-09T11:36:26-05:00

Most children who are older than 2 years of age should wear a mask. Some children will have more difficulty wearing a mask, such as kids with cognitive, developmental, intellectual or sensory challenges. Speak to your health care provider about how to keep your child and family safe.

Read our helpful article “How to Help Kids Wear Masks”

Can my kids see family and friends during the COVID-19 pandemic?2020-12-23T18:07:12-05:00

COVID-19 infection is more likely the more people you interact with, and the longer the duration of that interaction. Decreasing how many people you and your child come in direct contact with, will decrease the risk of getting infected with COVID-19. Children 2 years of age and older should wear masks in public settings or when near people other than household contacts, whenever possible. Maintaining distance, wearing masks, and practicing diligent hand hygiene can decrease the risk of being infected.

Can my children see their grandparents and other older adults?2021-01-09T11:37:19-05:00

Adults 70 years of age and older and those with chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes are at increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.

When possible, consider avoiding close contact with high-risk individuals unless they live in your home. If people at high risk for severe illness live in your home, consider minimizing other exposures such as at daycare and school.

When possible, maintain 6 feet of distance, and children 2 years or older should wear a mask.

How to promote child mental health during the pandemic?2021-04-03T21:58:07-04:00

Children and families have been thrown into a new world with minimal extracurricular activities, limited social interactions, increased safety protocols, and unpredictable shifts to online learning. As a result, it has been challenging for many families to remain patient and attentive with our children.

One of the first steps to bring calm to the storm (for both children and parents) is to establish a routine that includes meal and snack breaks, outdoor play, quiet time, self-care, and safe socializing. Routines allow children to develop a sense of security and mastery over their environment and regain predictability and hope.

If you need more help, please schedule a Virtual Care Visit with a Pediatrician to discuss your concerns. We are available 7 days a week.

My child has a chronic health condition. Is my child at higher risk of illness from COVID-19?2021-01-09T13:25:10-05:00

Some chronic health conditions increase the risk of COVID-19 illness. If your child is at higher risk of illness from COVID-19, consider the services your child requires such as therapy and personal care attendants. Identify alternative service providers, should a service provider become sick, or is exposed to COVID-19 to minimize interruption of care and therapy.

Can someone get infected with COVID-19 and influenza at the same time?2021-01-09T13:29:12-05:00

It is possible to get influenza and COVID-19 at the same time. The symptoms of these illnesses are similar, such as fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. The seasonal flu shot can help prevent illness from influenza. Speak to your health care provider about ensuring you are up to date.

When should I get tested for COVID-19?2021-01-09T13:34:59-05:00

Each region has its own regulations and recommendations about COVID-19 testing. Common symptoms requiring testing include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell, and contact with someone who has suspected or confirmed COVID-19.

Please visit your local health department website to find out if you should be tested.

Here are links to COVID-19 testing and assessment services in Ontario:

For information about COVID-19 Assessment Centres:
What does a negative test mean?2021-01-09T13:40:13-05:00

If you test negative for COVID-19, you were probably not infected at the time your test was done.

Importantly, the test result only provides comfort that you did not have COVID-19 at the time the sample was taken. False-negative results can occur if the sample was collected early in your infection.

The exact timing of the test is important. In addition, you may be exposed to COVID-19 and get infected after the test. If you develop new symptoms, you might need another test at that time.

For information about COVID-19 Assessment Centres:
What do COVID-19 antibody tests look for?2021-01-09T13:42:39-05:00

Antibody tests for COVID-19 are not widely available.

A positive antibody test shows you might have antibodies from the COVID-19 infection.

However, some positive results are ‘false positives’, and the positive result is from infection with another coronavirus, such as from the common cold. We do not know if antibodies to COVID-19 are protective against getting infected from COVID-19, or how long this protection lasts. Ongoing vigilance and protection against COVID-19 is important.

Whether the antibody test is negative or positive does not confirm whether you can spread COVID-19 to others. Additional research is needed.

Are there medicines to avoid in COVID-19?2021-01-09T13:44:44-05:00

There is no evidence that taking any specific medication leads to more severe illness or risk of death from COVID-19.

Continue to take your prescription medication as directed by your health care provider.

Currently, there is no evidence that the use of ibuprofen is dangerous in the setting of COVID-19 infection.

Your Questions About Naturopathy

Have concerns? Please connect with your pediatrician or health-care provider via secure video or phone, from the safety of your home. Don’t delay care for your child. Didn’t find your answer here, contact us! .. or book a virtual care visit. Find more information on Naturopathy Resources.

Are naturopathic services eligible for insurance coverage?2021-01-23T19:16:38-05:00

Yes, while services are not covered under OHIP, most extended health insurance providers have coverage for naturopathic services.

What can I expect from a visit with a Naturopath?2021-01-23T19:13:55-05:00

An initial visit will usually begin with a health history including a discussion of the current concerns.

A short physical exam will follow unless the appointment is by phone or virtual.

Finally, there is a discussion of the recommended treatment protocol and any lingering questions. Once the appointment is complete I will email the patient a thorough summary of the treatment protocol along with any product recommendations, recommended tests and dosages.

How often will I need to visit a Naturopath?2021-01-23T19:10:11-05:00

Unless the patient is coming in regularly for a physical treatment such as acupuncture or IV therapy, generally, we would schedule a follow-up 3-4 weeks after the initial appointment and then every 3-6 months after that.

If I see a Naturopath, will I need to see another Pediatrician as well?2021-01-23T18:56:44-05:00

It is not necessary to see another physician as Naturopaths are primary care physicians.

However, in many situations, the patient will benefit from a circle of care with a variety of specialists. In these situations, the appropriate referrals are made.

How long are appointments with a Naturopath?2021-01-23T18:52:17-05:00

Initial consults are typically 60 minutes and a follow-up typically ranges from 15 to 30 minutes.

What are the most common things Naturopaths see?2021-01-23T18:50:11-05:00

Some of the most common things that I see are: Gastrointestinal issues, Eczema and other skin conditions, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Epilepsy, Anxiety, Allergy and General supplement advice.

How long will it take to see a Naturopath?2021-01-23T18:41:44-05:00

There is not usually a long wait to get an appointment. I can typically see a new or returning patient within a week of booking.
