Sick Visit Q & A

When should I schedule a sick visit?

There’s never a wrong time to schedule a sick visit at Inspirada Pediatrics. If you have concerns about your child’s health and you need to talk to a professional, the team at Inspirada Pediatrics can help.

However, you should schedule a sick visit if you have a newborn with any type of illness, including a low-grade fever. Newborns have immature immune systems and can get very sick from germs harmless to you.

We also recommend scheduling an appointment if your child has:

  • A high fever
  • Earache
  • Pink eye
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Sore throat
  • A cold that lasts more than 10 days
  • Vomiting or diarrhea for more than 24 hours
  • Cut or laceration
  • Sprain or strain
  • Rash
  • Allergic reaction
  • Sports injuries

Inspirada Pediatrics provides same-day appointments for your child’s sick visit so they get the car right away. 

If your child has a head injury, shortness of breath, or a gaping wound, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

What if I cannot come in for a same-day sick visit?

Inspirada Pediatrics does their best to ensure they see all sick patients on the same day, but some days it’s not possible. If the team cannot schedule a same-day sick visit for your child, the pediatrician can review your child’s symptoms and make treatment recommendations, including medications. 

The team schedules an appointment for your child’s sick visit the next day. As your child’s primary care provider, the team at Inspirada Pediatrics is familiar with your child’s general health, making it easier for them to provide recommendations before your in-person visit.

What can I expect during a sick visit?

You can expect a compassionate and thorough evaluation from the team at Inspirada Pediatrics when you bring your child in for a sick visit. They review symptoms and ask about at-home care. 

They perform a physical exam and may run tests to confirm or rule out conditions like the flu or strep throat. The pediatrician talks to you about their findings and makes treatment recommendations. If appropriate, the team makes referrals to specialists.

They may schedule a follow-up visit to see how your child is responding to treatment and make adjustments if necessary.
