Waking up to find out that your child is ill can be a frustrating experience, especially if you’re worried that you won’t be able to see your pediatrician for testing and necessary prescriptions. Fortunately, here at Dr. Robert Miller's pediatric practice in Waldorf and Leonardtown, MD, same day sick appointments are available to keep our patients in the best health possible.
Convenience and comfort
When your child is feeling badly, the last thing you want to do is search around for a medical facility to work you in. Urgent care facilities, while convenient in some ways, can be very busy and have long wait times. Conversely, a same day sick appointment eliminates the frustration of sitting around a waiting room for your turn, for we build these appointments into our schedule every day. There’s also something to be said for the familiarity of your doctor’s office. After all, knowing the routine and the staff can have a comforting effect, especially for young children. If you have something that requires further treatment, you don’t have to worry about records being transferred or any other inconveniences. Your treatment can continue seamlessly at Dr. Miller's office!
In general, the same sort of ailments that are treated at urgent care centers are treated during same day sick appointments at our office. Strep throat and ear infections, for example, can be examined, diagnosed, and treated in-office. We also offer flu testing, treatment of minor injuries, and so on. However, true emergencies such as severe bleeding, uncontrolled vomiting, or unresponsiveness should always be seen in the emergency department of a hospital.
If your child gets unexpectedly sick, the staff here at Dr. Robert Miller's pediatric office is ready to help you with a same-day appointment. Contact either of our Maryland locations—Waldorf or Leonardtown—when you need us:
