What can be treated in Urgent Care?
Most non-life-threatening problems (sore throats, fevers, earaches, coughs, bug bites, rashes and much more). If we feel you have a medical emergency, we will recommend you go directly to a hospital emergency room.
If you or your child is experiencing a medical emergency, please dial 911.
What are the advantages of being seen in Urgent Care?
Your child will be seen by a pediatrician. Most Urgent care centers and local Emergency rooms do not have pediatricians on site, and your child will likely be treated by a provider with training and expertise focused on the care of adult patients.
Our providers have access to your child’s medical record through our electronic medical record system, helping them to address your child’s needs, document your visit directly in your child’s record and communicate electronically with your pediatrician.
The wait time will typically be much shorter than a hospital emergency room.
Your out-of-pocket cost (copay, deductible, etc.) will typically be less than a hospital emergency room, depending on your insurance coverage.
Our providers are able to take care of a wider range of medical problems than some Urgent Care sites.
* Regardless of the site your child typically receives their routine care, they can be seen at either site for Urgent Care.
