Our three esteemed pediatric board-certified doctors, Dr. Carol Calabrese, Dr. Inna Meskin, and Dr. Alexis Capozzoli, see their young patients daily for sick visits and emergency visit appointments.

Defining a Sick Visit

When your child is ill, you want them to have prompt medical attention as soon as possible. These appointments prioritize your child because they are emergent visits. We focus on treating an existing illness and its symptoms. The benefits of sick visits are as follows.

  • Cost-effective
  • Fast diagnosis
  • Immediate treatment
  • Medical advice

  • Give information on how to manage illness at home
  • Avoids further complications
  • Individualized care according to symptoms and needs
  • Medication prescription with all essential information

Symptoms That Mean a Sick Visit

Our pediatric doctors at Skylands Pediatrics in Sparta, NJ would agree that a high fever for over three days, vomiting, a body rash, confusion, headaches, heavy breathing or shortness of breath, diarrhea, stomach ache, sore throat, ear ache, persistent pain, and stiff neck cause concern for a sick-visit.

What Does a Sick Visit Entail?

Our focus is on nothing else except the child's illness and symptoms and getting the child on a treatment plan to restore their health.

  • Explain the child's symptoms, when they began, medical history, lifestyle, diet, and prescribed medications

  • Diagnose problem
  • Provide treatment options

Please Prepare for Your Child's Sick Visit
