Ratings and Reviews
When I have actually been able to connect with a provider on the site they have been a great help answered all my questions and didn’t have to waste a trip to the hospital. They were able to call in meds to. No some times we could not connect it kept dropping but the provider would actually call me on the phone to make sure I got the help I needed.
A huge help!!
We love Children's Mercy and this is another reason to love them even more! A quick app to access a Children's Mercy doctor instead of running to an urgent care center or the ER is a life saver!
Useless for separated parents
This application does not seem to support multiple party conferencing which makes it essentially useless for separated or divorced parents of children, where both parents still want to be actively involved in their children’s healthcare. When a telehealth appointment is scheduled only one person can receive a link to the meeting and if anyone else attempts to join using that link, it kicks the first person out of the meeting, and vice versa.
