our providers and coordinators tell us
Our Providers and Coordinators tell us:

“(Clarian) Telemedicine has allowed us to promptly see new patients a long distance from Riley without disrupting the parents’ work or the child’s school schedule. Long drives for the visits following surgery are eliminated. Telemedicine allows families to have the expertise available at Riley right in their hometown.”

our providers and coordinators tell us1
Our Providers and Coordinators tell us:

Telemedicine is very rewarding and fun.  I have been a telemedicine nurse at Deaconess for 5 years.  Once we present this option to parents they are very comfortable and happy with the outcome.  The doctors that I work with at Riley are awesome.  They seem to like telemedicine as much as I do.  The Evansville location is more convenient for parents and saves them time and money.  It is a way of the future.
