SouthCoast Health’s Pediatrics Department is now offering the ability to make online appointments at its Richmond Hill, Savannah and Rincon locations for parents who need to make appointments for their children who have fallen ill.
This service is available to existing patients or the parents of patients who have established accounts with the SouthCoast Health patient portal.
“Anyone who is a parent knows the anxiety of dealing with a sick child and that those illnesses always seem to arise when the doctor’s office is closed,” SouthCoast Health Administrator John Marrero said. “Now, parents have the ability to reschedule in the middle of the night — or anytime at their convenience — to find the first available appointment. If we, as a practice, can do anything to ease parents’ anxiety and get their children quicker and more convenient treatment, then we hope that we can do that by embracing simple and widely used technology.”
SouthCoast Health patients can access the patient portal or sign up for it at the following URL: http://southcoast-health.followmyhealth.com
You can now schedule your child's sick visit on our patient portal. You must have a patient portal account to schedule appointments. Learn how to schedule sick visits in this video.
