What kinds of issues can be assessed and treated during sick visits?

Most kids will experience a number of common illnesses throughout their childhood. When those unexpected illnesses and injuries arise, knowing where to turn can make an already challenging situation easier to bear for both kids and parents. 

Some of the health issues that bring kids in for sick visits include:

  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • Headaches
  • Sprains and strains
  • Abrasions and contusions
  • Minor lacerations
  • Skin rash
  • Allergic reactions
  • Constipation or diarrhea

There is no need to watch your child suffer when help is just around the corner. 

How should I prepare for pediatric sick visits?

Taking some time to prepare for a sick visit helps you make the most of your time with Dr. Bitar. Since the appointment will take place in your own home, you have a lot of options when it comes to where to set up for the visit. Make sure your child is as comfortable as possible. 

If your child takes any medication or has been treated for a serious disease, have that information ready to share. In the case of medications, create a list of each drug and the dosage. 

Many kids develop a fear of medical services. If your child expresses worries about the visit, help them understand that a visit from Dr. Bitar is nothing to fear and can even be a fun experience. It can also be helpful to point out that the purpose of the visit is to treat the underlying condition, so the sooner Dr. Bitar arrives, the better. 

Dr. Bitar understands that kids are not at their best when injured or ill, and she strives to make them as comfortable as possible during the visit. 

When is the right time to book a sick visit?

Far too many parents only come to the office when their child’s symptoms become unbearable.  There’s no need to let a child suffer through discomfort when help is readily available. 

As a parent, you should never feel self-conscious about helping your child get the care they need. There is no concern that it is too big or too small to bring to Dr. Bitar’s attention. Don’t hesitate to schedule a sick visit when your child is in need. 

Reach out to Dr. Bitar online or by phone to schedule an at-home, in-person sick visit. Telehealth is also an option and allows you to connect remotely.
