The Importance of Sick Child Visits

When your child is sick, there’s nothing you want more than to help them feel better. One thing you can do is bring your little one to the pediatrician for a sick child visit. The doctor can diagnose your child’s illness, prescribe medications if needed, and offer recommendations for managing symptoms. Dr. Samuel Divaker and Dr. Rezla Divaker at Divaker Pediatrics in Mount Dora, FL, offer sick child visits and other pediatric services to help your child recover quickly when ill.

Pediatric Sick Visits

Sometimes it can be difficult to determine if your sick child simply needs to stay home and rest or truly needs to see the doctor. The best thing to do is bring your child in to see the pediatrician. Sick child visits are important because the doctor will conduct a thorough assessment of your child’s symptoms and can test for a wide range of illnesses and conditions. Additionally, if your child has an infection, such as strep throat, the doctor can prescribe the medication needed to fight the infection.

Any time your children are not feeling well you should bring them into our pediatric office in Mount Dora, FL, for a sick child visit. Some reasons to bring children in to see the pediatrician include:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Ear infection
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Fever of 100.4F or higher in kids under 2 months
  • A Fever which does not respond to fever reducer
  • Fever that continues for more than two days
  • Intense or persistent headaches/migraines
  • Painful or severe rash
  • Bad fall or accident
  • Abdominal pain

Our experienced and caring pediatric team is ready to treat everyday illnesses and injuries promptly. When you bring in your child for a sick visit, we work to have your child seen by the pediatrician as quickly as possible. While we diagnose and treat a broad range of problems, some conditions and symptoms require urgent medical care and are best treated in an emergency room (ER). Children should be taken to the ER for severe bleeding, concussions, dehydration, and life-threatening issues.

Sick child visits play an important role in helping kids manage symptoms and recover faster, as well as preventing complications from developing. To see Dr. Samuel Divaker and Dr. Rezla Divaker for sick child visits, call Divaker Pediatrics in Mount Dora, FL, at (352) 383-8384.
