Sick Child Visits in Williamsville & Buffalo, 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 call our office right away and we will do our best to get your child in as soon as possible. Of course, if your child is suffering from a more serious medical emergency (such as seizures, shock, respiratory distress) or a traumatic injury (such as a motor vehicle or bicycle crash, poisoning, 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
  • Widespread rash
  • Rashes
  • Any unusual symptom that lasts for more than three days in a row
  • Persistent pain, such as stomachache, sore throat, headache, or an earache

At the end of the sick child visit, your child’s pediatrician will have identified the illness. Depending on the diagnosis, you will leave with either a prescription, dosage instructions, and/or instructions on how to relieve your child’s symptoms.
