Symptom Checker

Sometimes you have questions about your child's health, but the questions come up in the evenings and weekends when your doctor's office is closed. This Symptom Checker from East Tennessee Children's Hospital is designed especially for these times. The care guides help you make better decisions about what level of medical care (if any) is needed, and also give you advice on how to treat minor illnesses and injuries at home.
