What happens during sick visits?

During sick visits at Sugar Land Pediatrics, Dr. Adebo asks about your child’s medical history and symptoms. She also checks your child’s temperature, pulse, and blood pressure. Then, she evaluates your child’s heartbeat, breathing, throat, ears, eyes, reflexes, and more to gain more information about their overall health.

She may suggest diagnostic tests to find the source of your child’s symptoms, such as a nasal or throat swab, X-rays, blood tests, urine tests, or allergy and asthma tests. Once she has the results, Dr. Adebo reviews potential treatment options with you.

Which treatment options are available at sick visits?

Some of the treatment options include home remedies, over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, prescription medications, or minor procedures. Dr. Adebo offers acute care for minor injuries, such as cuts, lacerations, wounds, or minor fractures.

It’s important to make sure your child gets plenty of rest and stays well-hydrated. Your child may also benefit from seeing a specialist if Dr. Adebo suggests it. 

She tailors each sick visit to ensure your child receives the necessary care they need and follows up with your family to check that treatment is working effectively. If your child's symptoms worsen or you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to the Sugar Land Pediatrics office at any time.
