P.A.W. Veterinary Clinic has added secure telehealth services and virtual care for your convenience, via an app called Medici. Medici allows for Dr. Wormell to “see” current, active patients outside of normal clinic hours and/or if she is not at the clinic. Current patients (and their parents) can communicate with Dr. Wormell remotely via text, phone, or video chat for certain medical conditions (post surgical rechecks, recurrent and rechecks of skin conditions, diabetic glucose monitoring, some gastrointestinal conditions, like diarrhea or vomiting, or after hours questions such as is if an emergency/urgent care visit is necessary). If medications are prescribed they can be picked up at the clinic during business hours, your local pharmacy, or even delivered straight to your home via our online pharmacy. With the Medici app you will see Dr. Wormell’s availability, including approximate response time, which may change day today. After the consultation is finished, you will be charged a fee and the virtual visit will be added to your pet’s medical record securely and in compliance with applicable Maryland laws. Telemedicine interactions with Medici are secure and directly with Dr. Wormell.
Please note, this service is not meant to replace an Emergency Veterinary Hospital for life-threatening or urgent visits. Services are not available 24 hours per day/7 days per week but maybe available after our normal business hours. We hope that you will take advantage of this alternative and convenient option. If you would like more information, please call us at 301-829-1229.
