Is Your Child Sick or Injured?
Having a sick child can be stressful! We offer same-day visits for acute illness, including injury assessment, and telemedicine visits when appropriate. Our full on-site laboratory, x-ray and rapid testing for coronavirus, strep throat and other illnesses means fast and reliable results.
Kids are natural explorers! Sometimes this results in cuts, breaks, infections and things where they don't belong. We can suture, cast, staple, and glue as needed and are skilled in removing little things from noses, ears and anywhere else they get stuck. We also freeze warts and drain abscesses.
A 24-hour pediatric triage nurse, accesseed through our main number (279-8486), will share home-care suggestions when appropriate and help determine if and how soon your child needs to be seen by a professional. Wondering about your child's symptoms? Check out the pediatric symptom checker created by the experts at the American Academy of Pediatrics.
