Dr. Greg Rodocker, Deaconess Clinic Family Medicine
Deciding when to see a doctor, whether for your own, a family member or a child’s illness, can be a difficult decision. You know that sometimes a “virus is just a virus,” and that you just need to rest, drink lots of fluids, and give it a few days. But sometimes an illness needs treatment, whether through antibiotics or other medications and symptom care.
