Service Description

An urgent medical need can arise at any time of day or night, leaving parents in a stressful scenario and uncertain where to turn for help. For those in the Kailua-Kona area of Hawaii, Edwin P. Herd, MD, is an excellent resource for pediatric urgent care. He has the skill and experience needed to quickly determine the scope of your child’s needs and provide the right level of care as quickly as possible. If you encounter a pediatric urgent care need, call Dr. Herd’s office to determine your next steps. What is pediatric urgent care? Pediatric urgent care can be thought of as a bridge that spans the gap between a medical need that should be met in an emergency room, and one that can be addressed in your pediatrician’s office during normal business hours. It covers a wide range of illnesses and conditions and helps your child get the care he or she needs at the appropriate time. What are some conditions that can be treated in pediatric urgent care? To begin, let’s talk about some medical needs that cannot be addressed in an urgent care setting. If your child has sustained an injury with bleeding that cannot be controlled, is unable to breathe, or has sustained a significant traumatic injury, your local emergency room is the best place for care. However, many other issues can be effectively treated by Dr. Herd in an urgent care setting. These include: Fever Rashes and hives Allergic reactions Wound care, including stitches Vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain Cold and flu symptoms Sprains and strains Simple wounds and burns This is far from a comprehensive list. The best way to proceed is to contact Dr. Herd’s office by phone to discuss your child’s symptoms. You’ll be directed to the proper treatment source
