GAITHERSBURG, MD, December 06, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Raising kids is a rewarding experience for parents. As kids grow up, they will stumble, fall and get back up. It's every parent's mission to support and protect his or her child. So, what can a parent do when a child doesn't feel good? First, schedule a doctor's appointment, but before meeting the children doctor in Gaithersburg, it's beneficial to note specific symptoms.
A parent's knowledge of his or her child's symptoms is always helpful. Dr. Farnoush Jamali, pediatrician in Gaithersburg, wants to offer resources that parents can access from the comfort of their home, which is why she uploaded the KidsDoc Symptom Checker onto her user-friendly pediatric website at www.gaithersburgpediatrician.com
"The symptom checker can help pinpoint symptoms, so parents can get a sense of what they might be dealing with before making an office visit. Knowledge is a helpful tool that will prepare a person for certain situations, such as when a child is sick," said Dr. Jamali, Gaithersburg, MD pediatrician.
The symptom checker on Dr. Jamali's website directly links to healthychildren.org-a parenting website that provides general information related to child health. Dr. Jamali is among 60,000 other pediatricians that back this site because they are committed to promoting optimal physical, mental and social health of children.
It's a go-to website for new and experienced parents who are looking for parenting topics. Before using the symptom checker, a parent will need to figure out where a child is feeling sick. Once a parent knows, he or she can hover the mouse over the one of the figures. For example, clicking on the abdomen area brings up links specific to abdominal sickness or issues, such as abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea and vomiting. Parents can also click on the "A-Z" index for a complete list of symptoms. The links are directed to a source page, which lists a definition, symptoms and causes.
A symptom checker shouldn't replace the actual exam. Only use online tools as a reference to gather information before a doctor's appointment. With solid background information, it's easier for Dr. Jamali to identify the cause of the illness and offer a proper treatment plan.
