Sick Visits Q & A

What is the purpose of sick visits?

Sick visits focus on quickly assessing a child’s condition, diagnosing it, and getting them started on the proper treatment plan. These visits are focused solely on identifying the problem and working toward a solution. 

No one is at their best when they are hurt or feeling ill. Kids sometimes have an especially difficult time dealing with illness or injury. Knowing where to turn for prompt care can make a challenging situation easier to navigate for your family. 

It’s also helpful to have your child seen by a practitioner they already know and trust, and who already knows their unique medical history. Dr. Kar can provide personalized care aligned to your child’s specific needs. 

What kinds of issues can be treated during sick visits?

Sick visits can address a wide range of common childhood ailments and issues. Some of the things that bring kids in for care include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Coughing or sore throat
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Laceration and abrasions
  • Nausea or vomiting

If your child experiences any of these symptoms, or is simply not feeling well, coming in for a sick visit is the best course of action. In many cases, a course of antibiotics can bring kids one step closer to relief. Dr. Kar can also advise you on at-home care methods to soothe your child as they get better. 

When should I book a sick visit for my child? 

When you rely on Kar’s Pediatrics for care, your family can access sick visits whenever needed. You should never worry about voicing your concerns about your child’s well-being. No injury or illness is too minor for professional assessment and treatment. 

Childhood illnesses often develop quickly, and symptoms can ramp up with very little warning. Kids can go from feeling relatively normal to being in misery in a short period of time. Don’t wait to seek out professional assistance.

Watching a child struggle with symptoms is unnecessary when help is easily available. Reach out to Kar’s Pediatrics to determine if a same-day visit is possible. You can always call the office; online booking is also an option for less urgent booking needs.
