Sick Child Visits in Orlando, FL

Sick Child Care

As a parent, keeping your child healthy is your top priority. When your child falls ill, we want you to know that we’re here for you as it is our concern as well. If your child is showing signs of a non-life-threatening illness, please call our office right away and we will do our best to get your child in as soon as possible. Of course, if your child is suffering from a more serious medical emergency (such as seizures, shock, respiratory distress) or a traumatic injury (such as a motor vehicle or bicycle crash, poisoning, drowning), please call 911 immediately.

At Pediatrics of Greater Orlando, our board-certified pediatricians are committed to serving the healthcare needs of your children. If your child has fallen ill, contact our office in Orlando, FL at (407) 704-6912 to schedule an appointment.

Please call our office to come in for a sick child visit if your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • High and/or Persistent Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Widespread Rash
  • Rashes
  • Diarrhea
  • Persistent Pain, such as a Stomachache, Sore Throat, Headache, or an Earache

At the end of the sick child visit, your child’s pediatrician will have identified the illness. Depending on the diagnosis, you will leave with either a prescription, dosage instructions, and/or instructions on how to relieve your child’s symptoms.
