Americans aged 50 and older are feeling the pressure of healthcare costs, with 4 in 10 concerned about their ability to pay for care and others forgoing treatment altogether, skipping prescriptions or cutting back on daily living expenses to afford healthcare. (Becker's)

Pediatric Urgent Care FAQs

  • How much does a pediatric urgent care visit cost in Alabama?

    Urgent care can cost anything from $75 to $150, depending on the clinic's location. Of course, this only applies to cash-paying patients. The quality and standards of healthcare, on the other hand, are consistent across the board. Most institutions, on the other hand, would charge between $100 and $125 for non-covered services. Keep in mind, however, that this is just the beginning of the fundamental therapies offered by urgent care facilities. Medication and immunization shots, lab testing, and X-rays are not included in the package. Stitches, sprains, and broken bones will all increase the expense of emergency treatment. Even patients with insurance will be compelled to pay co-payments rather than having their insurance company cover the entire cost. Payments are made in

  • Is insurance accepted at urgent care centers in Alabama?

    Insurance companies decide whether or not to pay for emergency medical care. It is possible that a patient's insurance will not cover the costs. The urgent care center will only accept cash in that case. In most cases, however, insurance companies would cover urgent care, allowing people to visit a medical facility without having to pay a large sum of money. An urgent care center may refuse to accept this type of care even if your insurance policy covers it, but this is exceedingly rare. As a result, calling ahead and double-checking before visiting a care facility is always a smart idea.

  • What are common services of a pediatric urgent care in Alabama?

    You may be concerned that your child is sicker than normal, but this is not the case. The truth is that children will get sick, especially after they enter school and their immune systems are exposed to the health risks that come with crowded environments. Colds, flu, strep throat, ear and sinus infections, pink eye, and pneumonia are just a few of the illnesses that can be treated in a pediatric urgent care facility near you. Pediatric urgent care clinics can also treat stings and bug bites, allergic reactions, wounds and burns, swallowed items, sprains, and fractured bones in addition to traumas.

  • What Is the difference between an urgent care and the emergency room?

    The patient experience is the most significant contrast between a pediatric urgent care center and an emergency room. In an emergency room, the typical wait time is roughly two and a half hours. A pediatric urgent care center, on the other hand, can see the child in 15 to 45 minutes. Another important distinction is the expense of an urgent care facility versus an emergency department. The former is usually a fraction of the cost of the latter. If a patient has a significant health emergency, they should go to an emergency department rather than an urgent care center. Because urgent care centers are exclusively for non-emergent and minor diseases, as well as minor injuries, this is the case.

  • What is the difference between pediatric urgent care and regular urgent care?

    The patient experience is the key contrast between a pediatric urgent care facility and an emergency room. In an emergency room, the average wait time is about two hours and fifteen minutes. The patient, on the other hand, will be treated in a pediatric urgent care clinic in 15-45 minutes. Another important distinction is the expense of an urgent care center vs an emergency department. The former is frequently far less expensive than the latter. In the event of a serious health emergency, patients should go to an emergency department rather than an urgent care center. Because urgent care clinics are only for non-emergent and minor illnesses and injuries, this is the case.

  • What is pediatric urgent care?

    Typically, pediatric urgent care operators collaborate with traditional physicians, the majority of whom are available during regular office hours (e.g. from 9 am - 5 pm Monday to Friday). Late-night pediatric situations that might usually demand a trip to the emergency room are handled by these medical specialists. Pediatric urgent care centers treat both minor and significant ailments in children. They are frequently open till midnight and on weekends, even when conventional pedestrians are closed. These children's doctors, without a doubt, save parents from unnecessary and traumatic trips to the emergency room.

  • 10 Ways to Keep Your Kids Out of the Urgent Care

    There are a variety of ways to keep children healthy and avoid health problems and emergencies. Simple precautions such as hand washing, regular water, and adequate sleep can help protect children's health. Many diseases can be avoided in toddlers by eating a well-balanced diet, managing stress, getting the necessary vaccines, and avoiding smokers.

Recent Pediatric Urgent Care Reviews (20)

I’m extremely impressed by our experience here. We were in and out within an hour which means the world to me. My daughter injured her elbow and we were told to try urgent care rather than the ED. I honestly thought UC would send us to the ED anyway but they did not. The doctor and staff swiftly took my daughter to the back, took X-rays and diagnosed her in about an hour. My daughter has special needs therefore any time I can avoid the ED is beneficial to her and our family. The staff impressed me so much with the way they treated her and tended to her elbow as well as her special needs. Our general experience within the medical field is that the staff gets easily frustrated with my daughter because of her autism, they do as little as possible so they don’t “traumatize” her and quickly send us on our way without answers. This was not at all the experience we had at Urgent Care for Children in Vestavia. I’m so grateful to the staff and doctors here. Anything to avoid an ED visit during this time and due to my daughter’s special needs makes our lives a little bit easier. I would happily recommend this place for anyone in need of a pediatric urgent care visit.

I am a momma of two little girls one 3 and one 6 months. I had to bring my 6 month old because I work all week so I couldn’t take her to her normal pediatrician. Of course my 3 year old was with me because well she’s always with us!❤️ The lady at the front desk went out of her way to make me feel right at home, and even occupied my 3 year old, paid attention to her, listen to her when she talked to her(she talks a lot). She was a very nice person which helped my anxiety of bringing my 6 month old to the doctor. So it started out great then the nurse was very nice as well that took us back, last but not least Courtney is great. She took care of my 3 year old when she was a baby so when I heard she was working here after already knowing I was coming was just perfect. It was a the best experience I could have asked for given the circumstances. You have great people working for you! Thank you to all of them.

I took my 3 kids to the clinic yesterday without an appointment. I got told to scan the barcode they have on the door, I got told to scan it once per child and register each child by separated when I finished registering my first child, there were no more spots available for my other 2 kids. But they were so nice to see all of my 3 kids even though I didn't get a chance to register them online on time. My regular doctor was not available to see my kids until Friday and I was afraid to bring them to the hospital, so it was awesome to find this clinic and get my kids checked by the doctor the same day. We waited for about 2 and a half but it was worth it, I highly recommend this clinic. Thank you so much, I appreciate you a lot,

Knowledgeable staff and clean facility. We were there for 2 1/2 hours but my daughter's pediatrician couldn't see her for another 2 days because they were booked up. The wait felt like forever, but considering the long line of patients the urgent care had, the wait time was actually a lot less than expected. Our nurse and nurse practitioner were very kind and knowledgeable. My one and only complaint is that the nurse and nurse practitioner both told my daughter they'd bring her a popsicle for being so good, but neither ever did. Which I understand, they were crazy busy, but come on, don't tell a kid you'll get them a popsicle and not deliver!

I’ve taken my almost 3 year old daughter here 4 times in the past couple of months and I absolutely love it! I’m a working mom and sometimes it’s impossible to get her in with her pediatrician when they are open. This office stays open just the right hours and on the weekends to where I can take her! The staff is outstanding. They make me and my daughter feel so comfortable! And they get us in and out within a timely manner!

- Verified patient on 5/15

They got us in faster than anywhere I have ever been to! Doctor took precautions, and they got us out quickly! Definitely coming here for my kids instead of the regular er if I can help it! Everyone was very friendly. I am glad I was able to sit in my car during the wait! It is always worrisome bringing a child who isn’t sick to a doctors office full of ones who are. I felt they were very safe and clean.

We were on vacation when our kiddo got sick. This momma had a lot of nerves about going to an urgent care we knew nothing about. From the second we got in the door we were treated with compassion and kindness. We were treated by a knowledgeable staff and made to feel at ease. We had efficient service with a quick diagnosis and treatment plan. We are so happy we found UC4C to take our little one to.

- Verified patient on 11/27

This is my favorite place to bring my kiddos. The staff is always amazing. My only issue is with COVID the way it is I think it would be better not only for us patients but for the staff as well, to have 2 docs in the office. That way the way time wouldn’t be as long because tonight I waited over an hour for her to be called back. That’s my only complaint.

- Verified patient on 10/1

Our nurse was so lovely and made my kids feel comfortable and joked around with them when they were scared of the swabs. NP and front office staff were very kind as well. We appreciate how hard the staff at the Madison AL clinic is working with the high volumes of patients during this surge of covid in the area. Thank you!

I can’t ever get my grandchildren in to see their too busy pediatrician when they are sick but I can always get them in to urgent care and I really appreciate that. When they are hurting or sick , I don’t want to wait several days to get treatment and thankfully, with urgent care we don’t have to

It was my first time going and I would definitely take my child again if needed. Vivi, FNP was great. She engaged with my child appropriately which it made it easy for her to exam her. She was very knowledgeable and I trusted her diagnosis! It’s wonderful to have an urgent care facility just for kids!!

- Verified patient on 1/2

Dr. Thompson is great. We were referred to Fairhope pediatrics because of her. However by the time we moved to the area she had left that office. We don’t prefer Fairhope pediatric without Dr. Thompson, but are happy to have found her now. Only regret is that she can’t be our child’s primary doctor.

- Verified patient on 6/5

This was by far the best doctor visit we have had. I went to an ER and a pediatrician’s office because my son stuck something up his nose and they couldn’t/wouldn’t get it out. Everyone was so nice here at the urgent care and we were in and out in 30 minutes!!

- Verified patient on 6/10

I had an amazing experience! Everything was pleasant. The wait time was long but I expected to wait due to Covid. The staff member that administered the test was very informative and gentle. Definitely will refer this facility to all of my peers that have kids or in need of Covid testing.

- Verified patient on 1/5

Wait times are long, but that’s to be expected with rise in covid cases and testing. I love the convenience of booking online and checking in on my phone! I much rather wait in my car, than a waiting room. The staff is always super sweet to my kiddos when we come!

- Verified patient on 9/9

Everyone was awesome! We did have to wait longer than desired, but it was because they were slammed with some really sick kiddos, I can’t fault them for that!!! I like that we did not walk out with a million prescriptions either, just OTC meds!!!! I would definitely recommend!!

- Verified patient on 9/5

This was our first time at this location and probably one of our best pediatric experiences yet! Dr. Craig and the rest of the staff were spectacular and so kind and patient. The staff behind the desk were helpful and kind as well. Overall, a great experience!

- Verified patient on 10/16

They were great! The lady out front said they were short staffed and let us know we may experience a longer wait. We saw our old pediatrician that we used to use. She was great as always! We were in and out within an hour! Super fast!

- Verified patient on 9/16

The front desk staff were not friendly but the Medical Assistant and Nurse Practitioner were kind, caring, and wonderful. We arrived 2pm and were not seen until 6pm. It’s understandable though. There are a lot of sick kids. This is not a complaint, just feedback.

Alabama Pediatric Urgent Care

Convenience is important these days, especially for parents with young children. In a world when 'next day delivery' is being beaten by'same day shipping,' who wants to wait several weeks to visit their pediatrician or primary care physician? There are several types of walk-in clinics, including urgent care, pediatric urgent care, retail clinics, and others. These handy locations offer same-day access to qualified pediatric providers who can diagnose and treat a variety of minor injuries and illnesses in children aged 6 to 18. If you've ever wondered, "Where can I find a walk-in clinic near me?" you've come to the right place.
The last thing you want to do when your children require immediate medical attention is travel to a nearby urgent care facility.

Urgent Care Guide for Kids

In a recent survey conducted with the Urgent Care Association, Solv observed that patients were waiting an average of 24 days for appointments with their primary care provider. In today's world of instant satisfaction, consumers expect more. They need it right now. If you want to see a movie right away, you can either download it or stream it. If you need groceries quickly, you can call and have them delivered within an hour. If you need to make a restaurant reservation, simply look for one that has openings, book online, then go in to seat down minutes later. There should be no exemption in the case of healthcare.

As a result, pediatric urgent care in the United States has increased at a faster rate than any other type of healthcare. It's also why healthcare customers search for "urgent care" more than 5 times more than "primary care" or "family doctor" combined. These customers are highly motivated, seeking for "urgent care near me" with zeal. People want same-day access to great healthcare providers whether they are sick or injured - after hours, on weekends, and on holidays - without the cost and inconvenience of visiting to the emergency room.

Non-emergent healthcare needs, such as the flu, sinus infections, and strep throat, as well as injuries, such as bone fractures and sprains, wounds, scratches, and burns, can be detected and treated at urgent care clinics. In addition, urgent care clinics are increasingly providing preventative care services such as annual physicals and well visits, flu shots, and other immunizations and vaccines, effectively filling the function of primary care physician for the tens of millions of individuals who lack one.

There are specific pediatric urgent care clinics for children aged one to eighteen years old, which are usually open after hours for patients aged one to eighteen years old.

Urgent Care Services & Pricing

Urgent care clinics, which are part of the walk-in clinic healthcare category, are a good option for consumers seeking treatment for minor illnesses and accidents. An urgent care clinic typically provides annual and school physicals, flu shots and immunizations, and treatment for ailments such as colds, flu stomach aches, sinus and ear infections, and more. You can also be treated for injuries such as burns, bites, sprains, and breaks, which you might believe should be taken to an emergency room rather than urgent care, but you'll wait less and pay less at urgent care. If you don't have insurance, your appointment should cost between $100 and 140 dollars, not counting transportation.

Insurance & Payments

Almost every urgent care facility accepts commercial insurance, and many (if not all) of them also accept Medicare. As a result, if you have insurance, the financial experience will be similar to seeing a specialist, where you will be charged a co-pay, which is typically $35-50, at the time of the visit. Any further lab work, x-rays, or other tests will be billed to your insurance first, with any remaining balance payable to you later. If you don't have health insurance, you'll have to pay a $100-140 visit fee at the time of your appointment. If you're considering a telehealth or video visit, expect to pay between 25 and 50 percent more than you would with your primary care provider, but the convenience is generally well worth the extra money.

Urgent Care Hours & Wait Times

Different urgent care locations, even within the same group or brand, may have different hours. While they're meant to be useful when your primary care physician isn't available, this is a highly subjective and variable assessment. An urgent care, on the other hand, is normally open 6 to 7 days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., according to a regular formula. Between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., this might be any 8-12 hour period. Some clinics are even open 24 hours a day, similar to emergency rooms. In terms of wait time, most patients say they have to wait between 15 and 45 minutes on average, though this varies. It's usually better to choose a nearby urgent care center.

Urgent Care Guide for Kids

In a recent survey conducted with the Urgent Care Association, Solv found that patients were waiting an average of 24 days for appointments with their primary care provider. In a world of instant gratification, consumers demand more. They demand now. If you want to watch a movie, you download it in minutes or stream it instantly. If you need groceries, you can pick up your phone and have them delivered to you within the hour. If you need restaurant reservations, you find one with availability, book online, walk in minutes later and sit right down. Healthcare shouldn’t be any different.

That’s why pediatric urgent care has been growing at a faster pace than any other healthcare service in the United States. And it is why healthcare consumers search for “urgent care” more than 5x more than “primary care” or “family doctor,” combined. These consumers are highly actionable, searching with high intent terms like “urgent care near me.” They want same day access to quality healthcare providers when they are sick or injured - after hours, one weekends and on holidays - without the cost and inconvenience of the emergency room.

Urgent care centers typically treat minor illnesses like the flu, sinus infections and strep throat, as well as injuries like bone fractures and sprains, cuts, scrapes and burns, making these clinics ideal for diagnosing and treating non-emergent healthcare needs. And at a growing rate urgent care clinics are offering preventative care services including annual physicals and well visits, flu shots and other immunizations and vaccines, taking on the role of primary care provider for the tens of millions of consumers that don’t have one.

For kids there are special pediatric urgent care centers, usually open after hours for patients between the ages of 1 and 18.

Urgent Care Services & Pricing

Urgent care centers, which are part of the walk-in clinic healthcare category, are a convenient resource for consumers needing treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. Services that you would normally receive at your primary care office are usually available at an urgent care including annual and school physicals, flu shots and immunizations, treatment for illnesses including colds, flu stomach pains, sinus and ear infections and more. You can also be seen for injuries such as burns, bites, sprains and breaks - things that you might first thing to go to the emergency room vs urgent care, but you’ll have a shorter wait and smaller bill at the urgent care. As for cost, without insurance, you should expect between $100-140 for your visit, plus the cost of any labs, tests or images. With insurance, urgent care will be similar to seeing a specialist with applicable co-pay.

Insurance & Payments

Nearly all urgent care centers take commercial insurance and many (if not most) will take medicare. As such if you have insurance coverage, you can expect the financial experience to be similar to visiting a specialist where you have a co-pay, usually $35-50, due at the time of the visit. Any additional lab work, x-rays or other tests performed will be billed against your insurance first and any supplemental balance due will be invoiced to you after the fact. Without insurance, you’ll pay a visit fee between $100-140 at the time of your visit. This is typically 25-50% more than your primary care provider, but usually the convenience is well worth the additional cost. If you are interested in a telehealth or video visit, your cost could be as much as 50% less than an urgent care, you could be diagnosed and prescribed medication and you’ll never have to leave your home.

    Urgent Care Hours & Wait Times

    Every urgent care center - even those part of the same group or brand - may have different hours. While they are meant to be conveniently accessible during times when your primary care provider is not, that’s subjective and highly variable. A traditional formula, however, is that an urgent care is open 6 to 7 days a week usually between the hours of 8 am to 8 pm. That could shift to nearly any 8-12 hour period between 7 am and 10 pm. You’ll even find some clinics open 24 hours a day, similar to an emergency room. As for wait time, most patients report waiting between 15-45 minutes on average, but that can certainly vary, as well. It’s usually best to find an urgent care near you to either confirm the hours online, or call the clinic directly to verify. Or, you can book a same day doctor appointment online with Solv.
