At Carolina Pediatrics of the Triad we provide sick child visits to ensure your child receives the appropriate care by a
trained professional who specializes in the health and wellbeing of children. Pediatricians have a thorough knowledge
of childhood illnesses and health conditions and are trained to recognize, diagnose, treat, and prevent them to ensure
your child can stay healthy and thrive throughout their childhood. We offer sick visits during the week and on
weekends, which allow your child to be seen by your usual doctor or another one of our 11 board-certified physicians
when necessary, instead of at an urgent care clinic or emergency facility.

The visit involves evaluating your child’s symptoms and medical history, determining the cause of the problem,
prescribing the necessary treatment, providing general health advice, and discussing any other important details.
Your pediatrician will also ask about whether you have tried any other treatments or home remedies.
A physical examination will be done, which will be based on the reported symptoms and may include taking your
child’s temperature, using a stethoscope to listen to their breathing and heartbeat, and checking your child’s neck or
throat for signs of infection.

Based on all this information, your pediatrician should be able to provide a diagnosis and prescribe treatment.
Sometimes lab tests (CBC, COVID test, Flu test, RSV test, strep test, urinalysis, urine culture, monospot, pinworm
smear, or stool exam) may also be obtained and run in our certified lab to confirm a diagnosis or to rule out certain
conditions. We can arrange for X-rays or referral to a qualified specialist if needed.

At the end of a sick child visit, you will be:

  • Given prescriptions for medications, if required
  • Advised of dosage instructions for administering the medications
  • Given instructions to help relieve your child’s symptoms
  • Informed about possible warning signs and how to deal with them
  • Advised when to seek further medical care
