It’s important for us here at Evergreen Pediatrics to provide your child with the best care possible, especially when he or she is unwell. When this is the case, a sick-child visit is necessary, and we’re happy to provide one. Same-day visits are available when your child needs one. Just get in touch with us today to make your appointment with us for a sick-child visit in Kirkland, WA.
What are sick-child visits?
You might already be familiar with well-child visits, which are regular and routine checkups with a doctor or pediatrician in order to protect your child from illness and monitor his or her development. Sick-child visits, though, are appointments you schedule with a doctor or pediatrician if your child becomes ill or unwell. Common, minor conditions like minor cuts or colds can be treated in a sick-child visit.
At Evergreen Pediatrics, we understand that when your child is sick, it can feel like an emergency even if it isn’t one. This is why we offer same-day sick-child visits. You’ll be able to see us right away so we can treat your child and help him or her get better quickly.
When should I take my sick child to see a doctor?
Truly, a sick child can seem like a serious matter, so some parents might decide to take their child to the ER (emergency room). This is necessary if a child is suffering from a condition that is or could be life-threatening. It isn’t necessary, though, when a child’s condition is minor. If this is the case, then a same-day sick-child visit is the better option.
It might be best for you to take your child to the doctor for a same-day appointment if your child has:
- An illness like strep throat
- A high or lasting fever (a high fever in a child younger than 3 months is an emergency requiring a visit at the ER, however)
- Abdominal pain, especially pain on the right side, which could indicate appendicitis
- A recent injury, like a minor fracture
- Difficulty swallowing or is having a minor allergic reaction
- Headaches or is vomiting
- A widespread of painful rash
- Another minor condition that should have immediate attention
If you believe your child should have a sick-child visit or a same-day visit with us at Evergreen Pediatrics, then get in touch with us today for a booking.
