Don’t want to miss school? Out of town? Too busy to make an appointment? Need a prescription refilled ASAP?
Visit Dr. Peter and Michelle Contini virtually through Almaden Pediatrics’s new telemedicine portal. It’s quick, secure, and covered by most insurance plans.
To start an online visit, click on "Start Now". First time users will need to create a free HealthLens account, which takes about 5 minutes. Then describe the condition, answer a few questions, and upload 1-3 sharply focused photos of the condition. You will also need to upload a recent “selfie” with the condition photos.
Dr. Contini will evaluate the condition and return a diagnosis and treatment plan in less than 48 hours. If the treatment plan includes a prescription, it will be sent directly to your preferred pharmacy.
Currently, most Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Cigna, United Healthcare, and Aetna plans cover this service. More insurance plans are starting to cover telemedicine visits, so check with your carrier.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of the patient, you may make an account on their behalf and submit visits for them. Each patient must have their own account. You can use the same email for multiple accounts.
