It’s time to see the doctor when…

It’s not likely we’ll need to see your child every time he or she becomes ill.

…Here are some guidelines that can help determine when a trip to our office is necessary. When in doubt, call our office for a recommendation or call 911 if serious injury or an emergency has occurred.

Generally, we should see your child when…

He or she has experienced a low-grade fever (102°) lasting longer than two days.

Your child’s energy level, sleeping habits or appetite have changed drastically and for unknown reasons.

Your child has a deep cough, hacking or wheezing that has persisted longer than four days, and does not seem to be improving.

If your child has experienced vomiting and or diarrhea that has persisted for longer than three days and he or she is not able to eat and/or drink.

Remember, you know your child best, so use your judgment . . . and don’t hesitate to call us if you’re still unsure.

Appointment reminders . . .

Our staff will call you the day before your scheduled appointment, as a reminder. We will call the primary telephone number listed in your child’s file, and leave a message if no one is available.
