Is your little one sick?

Visit the pediatrician via your smart phone or tablet from the comfort of your home: 804-828-CHOR (2467)

We’ve expanded virtual visits to help keep our kids and families healthy, while social distancing to flatten the curve of COVID-19.

VCU Health Anywhere virtual visits are available for current pediatric primary care patients for:

  • Upper respiratory problems (without trouble breathing)
  • Cold-like symptoms (runny nose, cough or sneezing)
  • Sick visits
  • Hospital follow-up visits

Caring for all kids

We provide compassionate and skilled medical care for every child, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Every year, our general pediatrics team cares for thousands of children, which sometimes includes coordinating care with specialists and surgeons across CHoR and the region.  

A family-centered approach to care 

Our team provides a number of services for children, with a family-centered approach to care: 

It is important to share all medical information with your child's care team, including urgent care visits and care received outside of CHoR or in an emergency room. 

Adolescent Medicine 

Our board-certified adolescent medicine specialists offer comprehensive, compassionate, and optimal health care to all patients in this changing phase of life. 

Sports physicals 

Our fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians will determine whether your child is healthy enough to participate in a desired sport. 

Therapy services 

No matter the diagnosis, our pediatric therapists incorporate the doctor’s guidance and your child’s goals into a personalized treatment plan. 

Requests for refills, medical records and referrals 


Refills are available by phone, via the online myVCUhealth patient portal or by pharmacy request. Please call 804-828-CHOR (2467) and allow three business days for processing.  

Medical records
