Your Child Is Sick. Do You Call Your Doctor or Head to the ER?

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 23, 2022 (HealthDay News) -- It's a common dilemma when your child seems sick: Do you call the doctor, make a trip to urgent care or head straight to the emergency room?

If it's not an emergency, a call to your child's pediatrician may help guide you. The doctor's staff may recommend bringing your child in for a visit or going to urgent care -- particularly after hours when the pediatrician's office isn't open.
