Sick Visits

When your little one isn’t feeling their best, Raleigh Group is here to get them on the mend.  While we all want our children to be healthy and happy, being sick is something that happens to everyone. Our clinics offer same-day sick visits so everyone can start feeling better sooner.

When is a Sick Visit Necessary?

When your kids are sick, especially when they’re too young to communicate how they’re feeling, determining when it’s time to visit the doctor can be challenging. Ultimately, you should trust your instincts. However, we’d always rather you bring your child in to see us if you have doubts. When it comes to the well-being of your children, it’s better to err on the side of caution.

Some indicators to determine whether or not to give us a call include the following:

  • Running a fever
    • 3 months or less - 100.4º F+
    • 3-6 months - 101º F+
    • 6 months or more - 103º F+
    • If a fever ever reaches between 104º F and 105º F or higher, call us immediately.
  • Fever accompanied by pain
  • Fever and sore throat
  • Fever won’t break
  • Your child cannot breathe normally
  • Your child refuses to eat
  • Your child develops a rash
  • Prolonged sore throat or cough
  • Painful urination
  • Injuries
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain

These are just some symptoms that might indicate that you should bring your child in for a sick visit. As we mentioned, it’s particularly important to monitor your child, especially when they are young or nonverbal.

Raleigh Group Symptom Checker

If you’re having trouble determining your child’s symptoms, use our Symptom Checker to find out what might be the cause of your child’s discomfort.  Simply select your child’s age and sex, and follow the simple prompts. From there, you’ll be presented with a list of possible ailments along with easy to understand symptoms and other resources to help you determine if a call to the doctor is the best choice. Additionally, we offer this resource free of charge and in both English and Spanish to better serve our clients and their families.
