Question & Answer

Question

Is it OK to call my child's pediatrician even if I'm not sure my child is sick?

Answer

You should always feel free to call your pediatrician's office, even if it's for routine things like medicines, minor illnesses, injuries, behavior, or even parenting advice. If your infant or child is severely ill or injured call 911.
