Acute Sickness Visits

Our practice recognizes that children may get ill at any moment and may be at high risk for infection at certain points in their life.

We developed our practice with that in mind and offer same day sick appointments with minimal wait. If our walk-In hours are not an option for you then just call our office and we will see your child that day. We never try to overbook our schedule so we may be available to you and your children to help you when you need it most.

We provide testing in our office for many pediatric illnesses.

We can perform the following in our office:

  • Rapid strep testing
  • Wound cultures
  • Rapid influenza testing
  • Hemoglobin testing
  • Urinalysis
  • Serum lead screening
  • Pulse oximetry

We also can provide nebulizer respiratory treatments for acute illness. We can dispense these machines to you directly from our office to provide you with more efficient care.

When you call our office you may be asked to speak with our triage nurse to obtain more detailed and accurate information so we can be ready for your child and also prioritize the urgency of your child’s appointment.

Contact our office at 724-482-2220. Or message us directly on our Patient Portal for an even faster response from a nurse.
