Is your child sick? Whether you're on the go or at home, this app will help you know what to do next.

Questions and concerns about your child’s health can arise day or night - even when you’re at work or your doctor’s office is closed. But dealing with your child’s illnesses, injuries and new behaviors can be easier…

KidsDoc is designed to be your “go-to app” for managing your child’s health. It provides tools for making every day health decisions.

Our new design supports easier access to the everyday resources you may need:

Does your child have a new symptom, injury or behavior?
• Symptoms – for help deciding what to do when your child is sick or hurt
• First Aid – for quick reference when time is precious
• Meds – for help with dosages and maintaining a list of your child’s medications

Where should you take your child for treatment? The following locations and services are just one tap away, if your child does need to be seen for care:
• Find a Doctor – search our tool for an AAP member pediatrician
• Urgent Care– use Google Maps to find nearby Urgent Care locations
• Emergency – quick connections to Poison Center, 911, and nearby ERs using Google Maps

Never fails…always solid advice

I have never written a review. I refer to this app for a variety of reasons. I can’t even begin to say how many times this app has both saved me a trip to the doctor or prompted a needed visit. The advice it gives has always been consistent with the advice my doctor gives. As a parent, these are not always the things you know and putting a call into one’s own mother isn’t always possible. I have recommended this app a thousand times over and will continue to do so.

Every parent should have this app

This is my first ever review after a bazillion years of using Apple apps. My kids are now 12, 10, and 6, and I still find this app to be completely indispensable. I tell all the new moms and dads in my life to download it immediately. It has given us practical advice that helps us determine the appropriate care needs for our children and has saved me from over-reacting AND under-reacting hundreds of times. If you have kids, you need this app!

Worth its weight in gold

I’ve never written an app review but this one deserves it. This was recommended to us years ago by an ER doc treating our daughter. We’ve turned to it time and again. The recommendations it had for our 12 week old son matched what the regional children’s hospital also recommended. It’s a valuable tool and great peace of mind. Can’t recommend enough to other parents.
