Internet Symptom Checker 

Has this happened to you? – Your child is sick again and you aren’t sure what to do. You searched your child’s symptoms on the internet for answers. After searching you find that your anxiety level is through the roof because according to this searched information, your child may have a very rare and serious disease. This leads to a visit with your pediatrician only to find that these symptoms are related to a much more manageable diagnosis.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has a pediatric specific symptom checker webpage parents can use instead of random internet advice.  It can be found by clicking the following: Symptom Checker.

Remember, if you are concerned and you have questions regarding your child’s health, you can always call our office at (417) 882 – 1600 and speak with our triage staff or book an appointment with your provider today.
