Sick Child Visits in Alexandria, Woodbridge & Lorton, VA
When Should you take your Sick Child to the Doctor?
As a parent, keeping your child healthy is your top priority. When your child falls ill, we want you to know that we’re here for you as it is our concern as well. If your child is showing signs of a non-life-threatening illness, please call our office right away and we will do our best to get your child in as soon as possible. Of course, if your child is suffering from a more serious medical emergency (such as seizures, shock, respiratory distress) or a traumatic injury (such as a motor vehicle or bicycle crash, poisoning, drowning), please call 911 immediately.
ALL Pediatrics is pleased to offer a walk in clinic for established patients over the age of 3 months. This service is staffed by our pediatricians and nurse practitioners. We try to make the walk in process easy and convenient by providing walk in visits between the hours of 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
If your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms please call ALL Pediatrics at (703) 436-1200 to schedule a sick child visit if your child.
At our walk-in clinics, we can address minor illnesses such as:
- Fever (72 hours or less)
- Ear pain
- Cold symptoms
- Diarrhea and vomiting
- Pink eye
- Minor injuries
- Sore throat
During walk in visits, we are unable to address chronic issues such as long term medical conditions, special health care needs or behavioral/developmental concerns. At the end of the sick child visit, your child’s pediatrician will have identified the illness. Depending on the diagnosis, you will leave with either a prescription, dosage instructions, and/or instructions on how to relieve your child’s symptoms.
Our walk in clinics run on a first come, first served basis. Our goal is to provide timely and quality care in your child’s medical home. Wait times will vary depending upon the day of the week and season.
To make an appointment for a sick child, please call (703) 436-1200, or use our patient portal to schedule online. The more information you can provide us upfront, the better we can serve your child. This not only allows us to determine the severity of it, but also helps prepare the pediatrician with the appropriate background information.
If you have a child with special health care needs or have a child three months of age or younger, we ask that you call to schedule an appointment so that our staff can schedule the appropriate amount of time. If you wish to see a specific provider, we also ask that you call for an appointment.
