Sick Visits

Walk-in visits are on a first come basis and with the next available provider. Wait times vary.

If you would like your sick child seen by a specific provider, we ask that you call in advance to schedule an appointment with that provider.

Walk-in Hours

Signs of Illness in Infants

For infants younger than 3 months, we should be notified for the following:

  • Rectal temperature equal to or more than 100.5°F
  • Vomiting (not just "spitting up")
  • Refusal of food several times in a row
  • Persistent, loose, runny bowel movements
  • Excessive listlessness
  • Unusual rash
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Excessive irritability or continuous crying

It is normal for babies to sneeze, yawn, belch, have hiccups, pass gas, cough, cry, and occasionally look cross-eyed. Spitting small amounts of formula/breast milk is common, often appearing curdled from mixing with stomach acids. Sneezing is normal, as it is the way baby clears his/her nose. Hiccups are also expected due to immaturity of the brain and diaphragm.

If at any time you are concerned about your baby being sick or "acting differently", please contact us.
