Sick Visits Q&A

What kinds of issues can be treated during sick visits?

Any health condition that prevents a child from enjoying normal routines is reason for a sick visit. Some of the more common issues that bring families in for care include:

  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • Coughing or sneezing
  • Skin rash
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Burns
  • Sprains and strains
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Allergic reactions

This is just a short list of health issues that can prompt a visit to Valencia Health Pediatric Urgent Care. The practice routinely tests for and treats common viruses, strep throat, and urinary tract infections, among other issues. 

How can I best prepare for my child’s sick visit?

When you rely on Valencia Health Pediatric Urgent Care for your child’s routine health needs, the practice already has access to their complete medical records. This makes it easier for practitioners to diagnose conditions with an understanding of any existing health issues. 

Parents should be prepared to share the details of their child’s current condition. This includes a list of symptoms, as well as information on when those symptoms arose as well as what efforts seem to ease symptoms. Be sure to share any changes made in your child’s medication planning. 

No one is at their best when they are injured or ill. Kids are often very unhappy about coming in for sick visits. Reassure them that this trip to the office is for the sole purpose of feeling better as quickly as possible. 

Parents should prepare to take notes during the visit, as it is easy to forget instructions and suggestions when trying to soothe your child. Lab testing may be part of the diagnostic process. 

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

If your child sustains an injury or is feeling sick, there is no need to feel that you have to wait to seek out professional care. Feel free to reach out to the office to determine if you can come in immediately for a walk-in visit, as sick visits are available each day. 

Parents should never feel self-conscious about taking care of a child’s immediate health needs. The entire team at Valencia Health Pediatric Urgent Care is dedicated to helping kids feel better as quickly as possible, no matter what is causing their current set of symptoms.
