Advances in technology have intersected with the health care industry to produce innovative practice and delivery venues known under the umbrella of Telehealth, or Teletherapy as we like to refer to it. Peach State Pediatric Therapy is excited to offer an all new Teletherapy program for its patients. During the currently challenging times our company will continue to offer the high quality therapeutic activities and social interaction that you are accustomed to just in a different setting. Our all new state of the art Teletherapy system was designed to create a safe alternative of therapy for our patients who may have a compromised immune system, the inability to travel to the clinic, reside at long distances, or who wish to stay free from any germ or virus exposure. Please read the statement below regarding Telehealth and be confident that our company will go above and beyond the expectations of the American Occupational Therapy Association. If you are interesting in registering for the program please go to the forms section of our site and complete the Telehealth consent to treat form.
