Below are the resources and information you need for successful virtual care.

Hi, I’m Dr. Dina Kulik

Virtual medicine has transformed how we deliver expert pediatric care.

Virtual care can be used for initial patient consultations, routine medical visits and to review investigation reports, diagnoses, and treatment options.

Virtual visits allow clinicians to check in with patients in an easy and efficient way, without the patient needing to leave their home or workplace. We can ensure illnesses can be caught quickly and treatment is effective, with less delay in care. Virtual care allows patients to avoid the expense, time and burden spent travelling and waiting in doctor’s offices. It allows us to provide care in remote and underserviced communities when access to practitioners can be challenging.

Kidcrew is so excited to offer virtual care to any child age 0-18 years in Ontario and we are eager to help ensure your family stays healthy and happy!

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

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.
