Posts for tag: Immediate Care
Immediate care service means convenient and compassionate quality medical care 365 days a year. Here at Pediatrics On Demand in Oak Lawn, IL, Drs. Ayman Rawda, Reema Mohammed, Sheela Jayaram, and Ratnesh Kumar are proud to provide this service to their young patients.
Immediate care is an alternative to emergency rooms for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries for patients aged 0 to 21 to ensure medical relief.
The Oaklawn pediatricians first diagnose the illness through a series of tests, including:
- blood tests
- urine tests
- culture samples
Immediate care is designed to treat non-life-threatening medical emergencies. Remember, if your child is suffering from a medical emergency, call 911 or take them to the nearest emergency room.
What type of illness needs immediate care?
- Pneumonia: This condition entails inflammation of the lungs and a presence of fluid or pus, thus resulting in coughing phlegm, fever, chills, difficulty breathing, chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, nausea, and headaches. There are many causes of pneumonia but the most common origins are bacteria and viruses in the air.
- Urinary Tract Infection: This occurs in kidneys, bladder, ureters or urethra. Women are more susceptible than men and may lead to severe complications. UTIs happen when bacteria enter the urethra and multiply. Symptoms include burning while urinating, cloudy urine, bloody urine and fever.
- Bronchitis: This term refers to an inflammation of the bronchial tubes, a condition that causes a recurrent cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, a low fever and chest tightness.

When you need help, make a same-day appointment, or just walk in to receive the best medical attention.

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.
