Sick Child Visits in Rochester, NY
As a parent, keeping your child healthy is your top priority. When your child falls ill, we want you to know that we’re here for you as it is our concern as well. If your child is showing signs of a non-life-threatening illness, please check our symptom checker to see whether or child needs to be seen in the office, and how to give home care for minor illnesses (also found on www.healthychildren.org). If you believe your child needs to be seen, please call our office to schedule a visit, or if you are not sure if a visit is needed but have questions, to speak with a nurse. Of course, if your child is suffering from a more serious medical emergency (such as seizures, shock, or respiratory distress) or a traumatic injury (such as a motor vehicle or bicycle crash, poisoning, or drowning), please call 911 immediately.
Please call our office to come in for a sick child visit if your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- High and/or persistent fever
- Vomiting with pain or dehydration or persistent vomiting
- Widespread rash
- Persistent Diarrhea
- Any unusual symptom that lasts for more than three days in a row
- Persistent pain, such as stomach ache, sore throat, headache, or an earache
At the end of the sick child visit, we will have identified the illness and/or created a plan of care and further assessment.
