Walk-in clinic access for immediate access

Pediatric urgent care also provides walk-in clinic access so that your child’s injuries and sudden non-emergency medical needs can be met on the same day as their visit.

A walk-in clinic is staffed by urgent care providers that can triage injuries including cuts, bruises, scrapes, and mild sprains/bone injuries. Urgent care staff are ready to ensure that all patients are able to get the appropriate care for physical injuries right away.

Walk-in clinics also provide an easier way to get lab tests, blood work, exams, and other preventive care needs when it fits your schedule. Just visit the clinic with your child and you’ll be seen by an urgent care provider after a short wait!
