Pediatric Urgent Care

Urgent Care

Our Urgent Care Centers treat your child’s minor illnesses and injuries that may need immediate medical attention. When your child has a minor emergency or illness and his regular doctor is not available, especially on evenings and weekends, we are here for you.

An average urgent care center visit takes less time and is often less expensive than an ER visit.

Emergency or Urgent Care -- Where should I go?

Contact your doctor first.

We encourage you to see your child's primary care doctor whenever possible for the types of illnesses and injuries we treat in urgent care.
