Walk-In Visits Without Appointment
Walk-in visits are open to any child or adult that has had a wellness check such as a well-child check, annual check-up or a school/sports physical in the past 13 months. These patients can be brought into the office without an appointment regarding the following concerns:
When you walk-in without an appointment, we will work you right into our appointment schedule to see one of our providers. It is important to note that you may not be able to see your regular provider without an appointment.
When to call the doctor
If your newborn or toddler is sick you may be questioning whether or not you should call the doctor. If your newborn or toddler has a fever over 100.4 degrees, that is an indication to call the doctor. You should also look out for excessive vomiting or diarrhea, or rashes that will not go away with over the counter medication. If your child is having trouble breathing or has had a cold or stuffy nose for more than ten days that could indicate a more serious illness, and we recommend contacting your doctor at Primary Care Partners of South Bend for a walk-in appointment.
It is important to monitor kids and teens as well for signs that require attention from the doctor. If your child has a fever over 103 degrees, it is a good idea to call the doctor and request an appointment. You should also call the doctor if your child has a widespread rash that will not go away with over the counter medication. If your child is suffering from a headache, nausea, vomiting, and blurry vision, this could indicate a concussion or other conditions that should most definitely be treated by a doctor. Lastly, if your child has any injuries to a bone, a lot of swelling, or numbness of a body part, call your doctor at Primary Care Partners of South Bend to schedule an appointment.
As our bodies age, it is important to call the doctor when you have a serious illness or injury. Some signs to look out for in adults and seniors are chest pain, shortness of breath, vision troubles, serious burns, head injury, fever over 104 degrees, or suspected broken bones. It is critical that we do not take our health for granted. If you are experiencing any of these injuries or illnesses, call Primary Care Partners of South Bend at (574) 251-1200.
