Same-Day Sick Appointments

The types of problems we can treat during our same-day sick visits include cold and flu symptoms, sore throat, fever, earache, cough, vomiting, and allergies. For example, our same-day sick visits are not for medication refills, well-child exams, or immunizations.

When to Take Your Child to the ER

An emergency is when you believe a severe injury or illness may cause permanent harm or is threatening your child's health. In these cases, children need emergency medical treatment right away. Some of the most common medical emergencies that children experience include severe pain, breathing difficulties, bleeding, seizure, chest pain and fainting. If your child has a condition that requires emergency care, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Doctor Visits for Your Children

Your children should not only see the pediatrician for an illness. It's also important to schedule well-child exams at least once a year, beginning in infancy. At a well-child visit, the pediatrician can help find any problems early, when they are easier to treat. Each visit includes a complete physical exam.
