Sick-child visits

When your child is sick or injured, you can rely on Novant Health Harborside Pediatrics to see your child quickly. We make every effort to accommodate sick patients with same-day appointments. If your child is sick and needs to be seen quickly, please call us at 704-644-2552 to schedule an appointment. Please mention your child's symptoms and your desire for a same-day appointment when you call.

Our office has a full-service lab to complete blood tests, urinalysis and throat cultures on-site. This means your child's illness can be diagnosed quickly and you can begin treatment without delay.

After-hours calls

Our office is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you call our office after office hours or on weekends, your call will be handled by a triage nurse and directed to your provider as needed.

If your child is ever having a life-threatening emergency, do not call our office. Call 911 or head to the closest emergency room.

Medication dosing

Fevers and other minor aches and pains can often be remedied with over-the-counter medications. Please click here for dosing guidelines for common over-the-counter medicines.
