Same Day Sick Appointments

Dealing with a sick child is one of the most stressful moments for a parent, especially if this is the first time you are dealing with an ill infant or toddler. That’s why it’s so important that you have a pediatrician that you know and trust to provide your child with the comprehensive, gentle and timely care they deserve. Time is of the essence when it comes to an urgent matter and here at our pediatric practices, our medical team has been providing extensive medical care and treatments to patients of all ages, from newborns to teenagers.

Our practice’s philosophy has been for over 37 years that if a child is sick that a doctor should see them the very same day. You shouldn’t have to wait for an appointment and you most certainly shouldn’t have to visit an expensive urgent care clinic or ER if you don’t have to. We’ve been providing urgent and same-day sick appointments for children well before urgent care was even available.

No matter whether your child has a high fever, a stomach bug or an ear infection, we know that you want to get your child the medication and care they need so they can feel better quickly. We know that sickness can strike at any time, which is why our practice is also open on Saturdays and our doctors are on call 24/7. Knowing that your pediatrician is only a phone call away can often be a serious comfort for a parent, especially when illness strikes.

Our office is also divided into two sections: a well and a sick side, which ensures that kids coming in for routine checkups aren’t exposed to germs that could get them sick. Furthermore, it also protects sick children, whose immune systems are already down, from getting worse. We treat our patients like family, so you will never feel like just another number with us.

Your child may require a same-day sick appointment if they are dealing with,

*Asthma problems or difficulty breathing
*Fever
*Ear infection

*Diarrhea
*Nausea or vomiting
*Sports-related injuries
*Traumatic injuries
*Flu
*Respiratory infection
*Allergic reaction
*Strep throat

Same-day sick appointments are designed to give your child the immediate care they need from a qualified and caring medical professional; however, this is specifically designed for non-life threatening conditions and non-emergencies. Any severe conditions requiring emergency medical care should be treated by a local hospital.

If your child is sick it’s important that they get the care they need. Call our Waldorf, MD, office at (301) 645-6165 or our Leonardtown, MD, office at (301) 843-6996 to schedule a same-day appointment for your child.
