Receiving kids urgent care doesn’t have to mean a trip to the ER.
When your child is sick, the kids urgent care clinic at CareWell Urgent Care can be a fast and less stressful alternative to an emergency room visit.
An illness or injury to a child is tough – you hate to see your kid under the weather and feeling uncomfortable. But getting in to see your pediatric primary care physician at a moment’s notice can be difficult, and unless it’s something serious, it’s hard to know whether seeking kids urgent care at the emergency room is right thing to do – especially if it means waiting for hours and coming up with a sizable co-pay.
Fortunately, CareWell provides children’s urgent care services that let you get into see a doctor quickly – within 15 minutes on average – to get your child on the road to recovery and ease your mind about your child’s illness.
