    If I had called for an appointment, I'd probably be asked for the cause and if all I had was fever/vomting/diarrhea, they'd probably ask a few more questions to find out if it was serious enough to warrant an office visit.  They wouldn't deny me an office visit, but they would point out that if it was a virus that they wouldn't be able to do much.

    I am more (unofficially) educated than Joe/Jane Average.  I just worked in a clerical capacity at a children's hospital.  I picked up a few things like the difference between what your pediatrician can do for you and what a hospital can do for you.  Doctors are great, but if you need more than some routine tests and you need them NOW, then skip the doctor and head to the ER.
