Sick Visits

The PineyWoods Pediatrics, P.A. Care Team will perform a complete exam of your child, so please feel free to express any concerns that you have.

Before you arrive for your visit, it helps to prepare a few questions to maximize your visit time. When your child is sick, some answers you should know before you leave the office include:

- your child's diagnosis;
- when your child should start to get better and what the plan would be if he or she isn't feeling better (should you just call or return for a recheck);
- signs or symptoms that might indicate that your child is getting worse;
- when you should return for a follow-up appointment (this is especially important for more chronic conditions like asthma and allergies);
- how long you should take any prescribed medications and their side effects;
- when your child will no longer be contagious and can return to daycare or school.

If you are not clear on something, please be sure to speak up. We are happy to explain your child’s health and wellness again so that there are no misunderstandings.
