At Virtual Kids, we believe that physicians deserve quick access to Pediatric Urgent Care Specialists. That is why we provide two different services to our Alberta colleagues.

We provide urgent virtual pediatric consultation clinics every day from 5pm to 11pm as well as Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 12pm. We know that it can be difficult for families when the physician appointment doesn’t line up with their schedule — that’s why we allow your families to choose their own appointment time when booking into our  clinic.

You fax the referral and they book the appointment. It’s as simple as that.

Refer to our FAQ page for the types of patient referrals appropriate for virtual urgent care.

 

We also provide an evening physician-to-physician consultation service which allows Alberta physicians quick access to a Pediatric Emergency Physician to discuss urgent pediatric cases.

Available every day from 5pm to 11pm.
