FYI - Online Symptom Checkers

There are now several sites that you can help with accessing medical issues your child is having. They can help you at night to know if you can wait to see us tomorrow or need help now. Many people will find this more convenient than waiting for us to call back. If you need to contact us, please refer to the FAQ section of this site. Try this one for a start: Healthy Children which is run by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
