What To Do When Your Child Is Ill

When your child is sick, we know you need to be seen quickly.

Sometimes you may not be sure if your child is sick enough for a trip to the doctor,

so you should always feel comfortable calling us with questions. That's what

we are here for!


We treat all general pediatric illnesses (fever, cough, rash, ear / nose / throat,

tummy pain etc.) We also treat minor injuries – bumps and bruises,

nursemaid’s elbow, minor lacerations in the office during regular hours and

at our urgent care center after-hours and on weekends,

saving you an expensive and inconvenient trip to the emergency room, or worse, to

an urgent care clinic that is designed for adults, with providers who do not know

your child.


** If your child is exhibiting any difficulty breathing or appears to need emergency care, dial 911 immediately **


Ear Infections

Do you suspect your child has an ear infection? 

Please follow the link below that explains why doctors are providing the best care they can by not calling in an antibiotic prescription.

Symptom Checker

We know that sometimes a minor illness doesn’t need a trip to the doctor and that you might just want some general information. Please do not hesitate to call our office if you just need a little reassurance; we will triage you and determine if you should schedule an appointment or speak with the doctor.

You can also find helpful information on symptoms by going to The American Academy of Pediatrics
