Sick Visits In Tucson, AZ

 Dealing with a sick child can be difficult, especially when you aren’t fully sure what they may be struggling with. There are many illnesses that your child may encounter in their lives and it’s important that they are getting the care that they need so that they can start feeling better in no time! When your child isn’t feeling well, it’s important that you take them to their pediatrician for a sick visit so that they can get any medication that they may need to start feeling their best again. Here at Mesquite Pediatrics, we know that it often seems that children get sick at the worst possible times. The good news is that we’re prepared.

Our top priority is to make sure that your child gets the immediate attention and care they deserve when they walk through our doors. If your child is ill, we will do whatever we can to guarantee that your child sees one of our providers as quickly as possible. We have strategically organized our schedule each day to allow for urgent and same-day sick child needs for our patients.

Bringing Your Child for a Sick Visit

When your child is sick, you always want to do anything possible to make sure they start feeling better immediately. One of the best ways to do that is by bringing your child into their pediatrician for a sick visit. Their pediatrician can examine them and prescribe any medication that they may need. This also helps rule out any severe issues and helps stop a sickness before it becomes serious and causes complications.

If your child is severely ill, it’s important to bring them into the emergency room for proper care. Otherwise, your child’s pediatrician often leaves aside appointment time for non-emergency sick visits. Your child’s pediatrician will give you instructions to make sure that your child gets better as soon as possible and doesn’t spread their sickness to others.

By bringing your child in for a sick visit, you can ensure that they miss as little school as possible and that they’re able to rejoin their favorite activities sooner rather than later!

Reasons for a sick-child visit include:

  • A fever that is higher than 100.4 F for children under 2 months, or fever at or over 104 F in older children (as well as fevers that last more than two days)
  • Abdominal pain
  • Ear infection
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Painful or severe rash
  • Broken bones
  • Bad fall or accident
  • Issues swallowing
  • Persistent or intense headaches or migraines

Dehydration, concussions, severe bleeding, and other serious issues are best handled at an emergency room; however, most everyday illnesses and injuries can be treated by our team of pediatricians right here at our Tucson, AZ, practice.

Don’t hesitate to do what’s needed to get your child on the road to recovery. Contact your pediatrician at Mesquite Pediatrics in Tucson, AZ, at (520) 648-5437 to schedule your child’s sick visit and make sure they’re feeling better right away.
