So I realize my child has a tick on the back of her leg. I've never seen one or dealt with one before but it having legs was a clue. I called the Ped office and got the nurse (who historically is unhelpful but I thought I'd give her another chance.) I tell her I don't know what to do and she READS off instructions on how to remove one. I tell her I"m worried about getting the head out and lymes disease and wanted to bring her in so they could remove it. She said NOT to bring her in and repeated the instructions. I asked if I could take her to the ER. She said, "Why would you pay all that $ to remove a little tick?!" I said because I don't know how and my daughter squirms (16 mos). She said, "Don't you have a family member or friend to hold her down?!" Uh excuse me, I'm a first time mom and you are the doctor's office that I pay to be helpful. I hung up and went to UrgiCare. I'm switching doctors today! UrgiCare got it :-)Answer Question
