Urgent Care for Kids

CareWell provides fast and convenient urgent care for kids.

When it comes to seeking urgent care for kids, parents often feel torn. You want to ensure your child gets the medical help he or she needs to ease pain and get better fast, but you don’t want to make a trip to the emergency room for an injury or illness that turns out to be not that serious.

The ER can be a super stressful place to seek urgent care for kids. Unless your child’s malady is serious, you’ll likely wait for hours before you can see an immediate care physician, and you may be left sitting in an examination area for long periods of time while the doctors treat other patients simultaneously. Then there’s the high cost of an ER visit –totally worth it if your child is really sick, but an unfortunate expense if that nasty cough is just a cold and nothing more serious.

CareWell Urgent Care centers offer the perfect alternative for urgent care for kids. Our walk-in clinics provide a variety of pediatric urgent care services, and in most centers, you can see a clinician in as little as 15 minutes. Because our children’s urgent care services are highly affordable and we accept all major insurance plans, including Medicaid, a visit to CareWell will cost far less than a trip to the ER.
