Oak Ridge PediatricsParent Resources

Children and teens do not always have an easy time talking about their medical issues. When your child comes to you telling you they are in pain, you will undoubtedly want to help as soon as possible. Unfortunately, getting more details than “it hurts” can sometimes be difficult.

We know that you cannot always afford to drop everything and rush to a medical center every time your child has a minor health issue. That is why we have created the online symptom checker—a convenient resource that can give you some idea of what condition your child might be dealing with.

We also provide access to KidsHealth articles, offering you an extra resource with tips on how to keep kids happy and healthy.

Remember, the East Tennessee Children's Hospital team is always ready to help when your child is in need of quality medical care.
