Can You Take a Child to a Local Emergency Walk in Clinic Near Clearwater?

It can be scary when your kiddo comes down with an illness, especially if it’s sudden and you have no idea where they could have caught it. A simple cold that an adult would take a few days to recover from could be more dangerous to a child’s immune system. It’s important to seek medical help from a local emergency walk-in clinic near Clearwater when your child’s symptoms strengthen or become more severe.

Some kids will have sniffles and a sore throat or dry coughs for a day or two before returning to their normal energetic selves. However, there’s a bigger issue if your child experiences:

  • Fevers of over 100 for longer than 48 hours.
  • Chronic headaches or migraine pain that pounds or lasts for more than 24 hours.
  • Sharp pains in the abdomen or lower back.
  • Shortness of breath or persistent coughs that leave your child in pain.
  • Severe sore throat that prevents eating or drinking normally.
  • Diarrhea that lasts for more than 24 hours or vomiting.
  • Lethargy, confusion, or dizziness.

While children are resilient for the most part, the average school-aged child will get sick two to four times per year. Most of these illnesses are everyday colds, but symptoms like the aforementioned could lead to more severe illnesses.

When it comes to your child being sick, the saying goes, “it’s always better safe than sorry.” Never ignore severe symptoms of illness. We at Polmed Primary Care would rather your child be reassured of good health than suffer through an undiagnosed, untreated sickness.

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
