As a parent, your child’s health and wellbeing are probably your top priority. Unfortunately, you cannot prevent every bump, bruise or illness from occurring. Luckily, your Oak Lawn, IL, pediatrician offers a fast, easy and efficient alternative to emergency care with their Immediate Care program. Learn more about Immediate Care, offered by Pediatrics on Demand, with Dr. Ayman Rawda.
What is Immediate Care?
Immediate care is Pediatrics on Demand’s answer to the emergency room. Comparable to an urgent care facility, Immediate Care provides a familiar, comfortable environment with a knowledgable, medically-trained staff you and your child are familiar with during a scary or uncertain time. The emergency room or an urgent care facility may require long wait times and leave you and your child waiting for hours. Immediate Care can help provide you with a fast and efficient solution to an injury or illness.
What constitutes Immediate Care?
Patients should only take advantage of Immediate Care for non-life threatening situations such as for respiratory infections, vomiting, pneumonia, cold/flu, strep throat, sprains, burns, ear infections, allergies, asthma, viral/bacterial infections, sore throat, urinary tract infections, diarrhea, bronchitis, gastrointestinal issues or stomach ache. While Pediatrics on Demand can provide various testing, x-rays and even stitches if necessary, we recommend the closest emergency room for life-threatening situations.
