The Endocrinology and Diabetes Programs are continuing to increase their presence throughout the Children’s Mercy region via telemedicine. Using technology, the team is able to provide care for patients who live hundreds of miles from Kansas City.

Patients and families find telemedicine visits fit their needs

This approach lets the team see new patients when circumstances are appropriate. They also can see established patients more regularly, ensuring these patients receive the care they need, when they need it. Our patients and families have shared that telemedicine visits fit their needs and bring convenience to appointments.
