Sick Visits Q&A

What is the focus during sick visits?

At Las Vegas Pediatrics, sick visits focus on assessing your child’s condition and determining the source of symptoms. Dr. Kuriakose understands that no one is at their best when they feel bad and that kids are especially sensitive to discomfort and pain. She makes every effort to help kids feel comfortable at all times, especially during sick visits. 

Rapid testing options are available for some infections, and others can be diagnosed based on a quick physical exam and an exploration of symptoms. Dr. Kuriakose strives to make an accurate diagnosis during your visit. 

The next step is beginning a treatment plan. You’ll receive all the information needed to make an informed decision about your child’s treatment path, including answers to any questions you might have. 

What kinds of children’s health issues can be treated during sick visits?

Kids encounter many different types of injuries and illnesses as they grow up. Some are more serious than others, but having a trusted health advisor to turn to can make it far easier to support your child through the recovery process. 

Some of the things that bring children in for sick visits include:

  • Allergy symptoms
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fever
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Skin rash
  • Minor lacerations or abrasions
  • Sore throat
  • Coughing
  • Headaches

If your child isn’t feeling well, a sick visit is the first step toward lasting relief. 

When is the right time to come in for sick visits?

There’s no need to let a child suffer through symptoms when help is readily available. Part of the benefits of choosing Las Vegas Pediatrics as your family pediatric practice is having easy access to a highly skilled children’s health specialist when needed. 

Don’t feel you have to wait for symptoms to worsen before reaching out to book a sick visit. Kids can go from feeling a little under the weather to miserable within a very short span of time. 

Call the office to see if you can bring your child in for a same-day visit. Online scheduling is also an option and a great fit for less urgent scheduling needs.
