Sick Visits Q & A

What is a sick visit?

When children are sick, they need to visit their pediatrician to get an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment. But there are varying degrees of illness, and sometimes it’s not that easy to decide whether your child needs the attention of a doctor or can rest at home.

If you’re in doubt, call Comprehensive Pediatric Care. Their team knows which questions to ask, which symptoms require same-day or immediate attention, and when it’s safe to wait a day or two to let an illness run its course.

Are same-day sick appointments available at Comprehensive Pediatric Care?

The team at Comprehensive Pediatric Care always keeps same-day appointments available for sick children who need the doctor’s attention. Call as soon as you suspect your child is sick and needs an appointment so that they can schedule the first possible appointment.

What conditions are commonly treated at a sick visit?

During sick visits, Dr. Jindal treats many different illnesses. She also takes care of children who have suffered an injury. This list includes some, but not all, of the conditions frequently treated during sick visits:
