Pediatric Urgent Care

Pediatric urgent care when you need it.

For many parents, it’s hard to know exactly when to seek pediatric urgent care services. You don’t want to have to spend hours waiting in the emergency room (or paying big emergency room fees) if your child’s sore throat, rash, headache or muscle sprain is really nothing serious. On the other hand, you want to make sure you’re seeking appropriate pediatric urgent care when necessary, giving your child the medical attention he or she needs to avoid an illness or injury turning into something more serious.

CareWell Urgent Care centers can help. We offer pediatric urgent care on a walk-in or appointment basis, where you and your child can see a clinician in as little as 15 minutes. Offering care for children of all ages, including urgent care for infants ages 6 months and up, we make it possible to skip the long lines at the emergency room and to get the peace of mind that you’re doing everything you can to help your child get better faster.

Pediatric urgent care in a comfortable, state-of-the-art setting.

While most emergency rooms are fairly stressful places, we’ve designed our urgent care clinics to be a more comfortable and soothing experience. When you come for pediatric urgent care, you’ll find our waiting rooms to be quiet spaces with soft lighting and an area for children to play. Our care rooms are also designed to make you feel comfortable and at ease. And they’re equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment like X-ray machines and an on-site lab that allow us to provide you with comprehensive pediatric urgent care in one convenient setting.

Our children’s urgent care team has expertise in caring for all kinds of medical conditions – and in soothing nervous patients and parents. After your visit, we’ll send a summary of the exam and diagnosis to your primary care physician, and to any specialists that might require the information.

We accept all major insurance plans, including Medicaid. Co-pays are typically the same as a visit to your primary care physician, rather than the much higher cost of a visit to the ER. For patients without insurance who need pediatric urgent care services, we offer affordable self-pay options.
