Sick Child Visits in Lincoln, Nebraska

Lincoln Pediatric Group is here to help your child fully recover

As a parent, keeping your child healthy is your top priority. When your child falls ill, we want you to know that Lincoln Pediatric Group is here for you as it is our concern as well. If your child is showing signs of a non-life-threatening illness, please call our pediatric office right away and we will do our best to provide the care your child needs as soon as possible.

If your child is suffering from a more serious medical emergency (such as seizures, shock, respiratory distress) or a traumatic injury (such as a motor vehicle or bicycle crash, poisoning, drowning), please call 911 immediately.

Call (402) 489-3834

Please call our office to come in for a sick child visit if your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • High and/or Persistent Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Widespread Rash

  • Diarrhea
  • Persistent Pain, such as a Stomachache, Sore Throat, Headache, or an Earache
