Sick Visits Q&A

What are sick visits?

Pediatric sick visits are a convenient way to access health care for your child when they have an acute illness or injury.

One World Pediatrics offers compassionate medical care that’s an excellent choice over hospital emergency rooms for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries.

When your child is sick or in pain and needs urgent attention, you want to see a doctor as soon as possible. At One World Pediatrics, same-day appointments are available for your sick child, ensuring a speedy recovery for them, peace of mind for you, and helping reduce the spread of infection.

You can also access sick visits via secure telemedicine, attend the walk-in clinic, or receive after-hours care for urgent problems.

What symptoms might require a sick visit?

Sick visits cover symptoms your child experiences that aren’t so severe they need to go to the emergency room. Common problems your child might develop include:

  • Asthma attacks
  • Tonsillitis and strep throat
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Fevers
  • Skin rash or hives
  • Loss of appetite
  • Abdominal pain
  • Headaches
  • Insect bites and stings
  • Constipation or fecal impaction
  • Sprains and other sports injuries
  • Ear infections
  • Burns and scalds

If your child has any of these symptoms and seems unwell or complains of feeling sick, it’s best to get them checked out by a One World Pediatrics team member. They thoroughly examine your child and can perform blood draws, urine tests, culture samples, or X-rays to confirm a diagnosis.

How should I care for my sick child?

When you attend your sick visit, the One World Pediatrics team can advise you on how to care for your child.

The specific care a sick child requires depends on their illness, but, in general, you should ensure your child rests, drinks plenty of clear fluids, and eats nutritious food to help them recover.

If your child is sick, in most cases, it’s a passing problem that their immune system takes care of. However, you can always discuss your concerns and bring your child in for a sick visit, even if it’s just to put your mind at rest.

Whenever your child needs medical attention, call One World Pediatrics to arrange a sick visit or book an appointment online.
