MedZed expands service area into Cobb, north Fulton | Families
(WXIA) -- MedZed, an innovative at-home pediatric care service in the Atlanta area, announced its expansion into Cobb and North Fulton Counties. MedZed’s growing business in Atlanta neighborhoods provides parents with an alternative after-hours healthcare option in the comfort of their home. With rapid growth in the Atlanta area, MedZed’s team has expanded its service area to include larger patient populations outside of the perimeter. The new service area includes Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Brookhaven, Vinings, Smyrna, Marietta, Kennesaw, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, East Cobb, Morningside, Druid Hills, Midtown, Decatur and Johns Creek.
MedZed treats children ages 2-17 with common symptoms such as rashes, cold and flu, sore throat and eye or ear pain through a house-call service. Using secure video conferencing and advanced i2eye medical technology, the physicians can evaluate, diagnose and treat symptoms with the assistance of an on-site pediatric nurse in the patient’s home. Using an electronic medical record systems pediatricians maintain patient records and send prescriptions straight to the customer’s preferred pharmacy.
“The expansion of MedZed services into cities outside of Atlanta is significant because it allows more families access to this revolutionary new service,” says CEO Scott Schnell. “We offer parents the convenience of having a doctor see the sick child in the comfort of their home. Using our advanced i2eye medical technology and qualified on-call physicians keeps children out of waiting and emergency rooms.”
The rapidly growing MedZed team consists of board certified nurses and doctors with experience treating children. Each potential physician and nurse must adhere to a high standard of medical qualifications and undergo a thorough background check to ensure MedZed provides only the most superior service. On top of extensive training, the MedZed medical team shares a passion for helping children while expanding the quality of care in the healthcare industry.
