Do you have questions about your child’s symptoms or illness, but aren’t sure if you should call the office?

Try out our new Symptom Checker*. This tool puts information about the most common childhood and adolescent symptoms and illnesses at your finger tips. It will help you decide when to call the office for advice or to make an appointment, based on your child’s symptoms.

A separate COVID-19 Self Assessment Tool is also available to help you decide what action to take if your child has been exposed to or has symptoms that you think may be related to COVID-19.

*Based on Barton Schmitt protocols, the gold standard in triaging.
