Your space in your car means you have control over some factors that could affect your health and welfare. This is one of the main advantage of a drive through clinic.

Drive-through for a checkup

Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has turned the world upside down. Healthcare systems that revolved around infection control now find it necessary to revamp operations to cope with the highly infectious COVID19. Hospitals, which welcomed patients in for comprehensive treatment, are offering telemedicine services for consultations from home to limit patient visits. However, some of the children might require visiting pediatrician for clinical examination. Though we have routine pediatric outpatients functioning inside the hospital we have opened a drive through clinic for children for the families who does not want to enter inside hospital

Drive through Pediatric Clinic offers distinct advantages

  • Children do not need to enter the hospital
  • They do not come in contact with other patients
  • Open-air greatly reduces the chances of infection

A drive through is better than tele-consultation because:

  • The clinic enables clinical examination by experts
  • Clinician can directly interact with child

Healthcare needs are evolving and so should the healthcare delivery system. Drive through clinics offer a safe alternative for providing clinical care with minimum exposure to infections.

Drive in with your child for a comprehensive pediatric check up by our specialists in our Drive Through Pediatric Clinic.
