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…
Pediatric SymptomMD 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
• Parent Advice – for answers to questions about behaviors, eating and wellness
• 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 the Zocdoc app to find the perfect doctor for your child
• Urgent Care– use Google Maps to find nearby Urgent Care locations
• Emergency – quick connections to Poison Center, 911, and nearby ERs using Google Maps

Ratings and Reviews
Useful info for parents
As parents of a toddler, my husband and I find this application to be really helpful. When you're wondering whether or not you should worry (or how much you should worry) about your child's fever or cough, this provides answers quickly. We have various baby books we can look at, but the layout of this program and the information in it seem much more accessible AND to the point - and, of course, if we're out and something comes up, we'll have the iPhone with us.
Helpful and accurate
This is written by doctors, for parents. It's been especially helpful to figure out how to deal with a number of common and uncommon children's conditions. I repeatedly utilize the dosing tables to help figure out the appropriate dosing for a number of common meds by weight (which is something you can't get from the bottle). I take great comfort that this is written by a number of doctors and gives great practical advice. I recommend this app to all parents that I know.
Invaluable for parents
Great information that's always in my pocket. As a parent of two young ones, it is invaluable. Won't replace your pediatrician, but helps you work through the problem and communicate with your Doctor so much more effectively. Highly, highly recommended for all parents as the ultimate reference for all things medical, backed by a trusted pediatrician and years of research and knowledge. (no, I don't know him personally - I'm just very satified). Worth every penny!
