Direct Pediatric Care Practice Uses Spruce For Text, Calls, and Videos

A bit about the business…

Mindful Pediatrics is a membership-based virtual and in-person direct pediatric care practice. My members receive direct access to me for telehealth and in-person visits. This allows me to practice integrative medicine and provide holistic care. Wellness is the state of mind, body, spirit and environment all in balance. My goal is to optimize all these aspects to keep a child happy and healthy!

How long have you been doing it?

I opened my own practice in April of 2020. At the beginning of my career I worked for 10 years in the system at University of Kansas and then a local private practice. But I struggled to provide the care I wanted to give within these settings. It became more apparent that families need individualized holistic healthcare for their children. That is when I turned the dream of Mindful Pediatrics into a reality.

What first brought you to Spruce?

Spruce delivers a HIPAA-compliant way to conduct virtual care with text, calls, and videos.

How do you use Spruce at work?

Spruce is how my patients communicate with me when they have a question, concern, or problem with their child. It is convenient for both of us! Plus it is secure and trustworthy.

What is your favorite Spruce feature?

The ability for patients to send pictures or videos. In pediatrics, a photo is worth a thousand words! I get photos of rashes, pink eyes, ouchies, and all kinds of things! This saves the patient a trip to the office for an appointment.

What do you like to do most when you’re not working?

When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my family and pets (including my 10 chickens!).
