Latest Pediatric Urgent Care updates

Jun 15, 2022
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)
Jun 15, 2022
BA.4 and BA.5 — "sister variants" of the original omicron strain — are gaining prevalence in the U.S. and now account for about 1 in 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, CDC data shows. (Becker's)

Pediatric Urgent Care FAQs

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

    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 Arizona?

    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 Arizona?

    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.

I truly was surprised at how this particular urgent care handlerd everything … When the assistant did my vitals etc she was very professional and interested in my short story about my health .. I was grateful because since november things have been interesting to say the least (concerning my health). Dr Daniel showed great concern for me and really stressed that if my symptoms worsened to go straight to the er .. He also said to feel free to call them if i had any questions.. In the last 10 months i had kidney removed becauSe of cancer and covid as well as gallbladder removed. up until all of this in my lifetime you could count on one hand how many er/hospital visits i had made .. 4 times including my birth and my kids birth as well as diagnosed with ms .. Soooooo let me just say i appreciate their immediate care as my doc was to busy. ugh. Now if they get my antibiotic ready we can start getting this under control . thank you everyone

I went there with my 3yr old son...we had been sick for 10 days with no relief. The front desk staff was so sweet and kind with my son. They made him feel comfortable from the get go. When the nurse took us to our room same thing. Very patient and kind with my son...they were kind to me as well ofcourse. I do feel the Dr kinda rushed us through but it is an Urgent Care and they have many patients to see. He was very fun and made jokes with my son to keep him comfortable. Overall great experience. Was my son's first time visiting a Dr office that wasn't at his pediatricians office and he said he had fun! Thank you guys!

I have gone to this urgent care countless time for kids or myself and always go back but last night the doctor and nurse who treated my teenage daughter were incredible!! She came in for a UTI that was just mortifying for a teenager... I cannot imagine them handling it any better! They made her feel so comfortable and I guarantee they are the reason she won’t be as stressed out to go back if anything ever happens in the future. I cannot thank you guys enough for how you made my daughter feel. You were so kind and so unbothered and that was a game changer for someone her age. I really appreciate you both!

Second time I bring my daughter on an emergency need. They cared & properly diagnosed my daughters last croup flare up, loved that the doctor educated on us on what to watch out for and all the details. That’s why this time I knew what to look out for. We saw the same doctor as last time she was great once again, bed side manner great with kids & parents. For this time of year I was expecting a longer wait time but the wait time was actually a lot shorter than what they estimated about an hour shorter which was a big relief. I love the care here.

- Verified patient on 12/24

Other than all my previous visit with my kids, when I make an appointment I expect to be seen 5-10 mins before or after my appointment scheduled time. This time I waited 45 mins after my appointment scheduled time and I arrive 10 mins early. Even more a appointment that was scheduled after me was seen before me. Was not happy about that. I just needed to vent on this situation and let someone know how I felt. Just do better and keep up the good work you do. Thank for all you do. Thanks.

This was our first time in to AllKids Urgent Care and it was a really great experience. The paper work was sent right to your phone and super quick to fill out. We got right in without any wait once that was done. Both the office staff and the medical staff were really friendly. I loved the Dr we saw and she gave us some really good advice on what to do once we left. My 2 year old daughter walked out of there thanking everyone she saw :)

Referred to ER i feel unnecessarily after a 1 min assessment. I paid a 75 copay for that amd ER would be 250. I will be going to my pediatrician for a second opinion, unfortunately could nkt get my child in today. Felt that additional testing could have been done to rule out other causes. I think some providers semd to ER unnecessarily which defests the purpose of an UC. Also I am a nurse and feel that this was inadequate.

Took all three of my kids here for a Covid test, thankfully all were negative. It was very quick. The staff was so friendly and so helpful. Even with everything that’s going on the staff was very brave and very comforting to my children who hadn’t had the test done before. They made sure I had a printed copy of the test to take home. I couldn’t be more happy with the experience. Thank you.

We were able to easily sign up for an appointment within 30 minutes. Check-in was seamless. Wait time was minimal. Every one we encountered was helpful and friendly. The provider, Jasma Dydell, was wonderful with us and my son. She explained everything, answered our questions, and demonstrated empathy and kindness. We typically don't expect much from an urgent care visit (whether it's for our kiddo or for ourselves), but this was a really great experience.

I had 2 young kids (5yo and 3yo) come in for potential strep late in the day. Yes, we waited for multiple hours, but the nurse who assisted us was AMAZING! She was calm, patient, and made the experience fun. She was knowledgeable about pharmacies opened late nearby and gave me such a nice compliment about my well behaved children. She made me feel safe and heard. Very grateful for her service.

The front office girl was rude as hell she doesn’t know how to greet patients she sucked and I did not care for her!! The medical assistant got my sons height wrong THE DOCTOR WAS AMAZING AND HILARIOUS WISHE HE WAS A PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR I WOULD HAVE MY KIDS SEE HIM! Get rid of those other sad people they didn’t smile and looked depressed GIVE THE DOCTOR A RAISE

- Verified patient on 8/4

Took my son to get his ears looked at because our pediatrician wasn’t able to see him as soon as we hoped. Even with covid protocols it went fairly smoothly. Waiting in the car with a baby is a little rough, but they got us out as quickly as they could. They took care of him and were so kind to a little baby with a double ear infection.

- Verified patient on 4/22

My son was in so much pain when he was being held and too weak to walk that he was screaming they allowed us to wait in the comfort of our car and texted us when it was our turn. They helped make me feel comfortable for how my child was behaving from being sick. Best urgent care for kids, if you can’t get into your PCP.

- Verified patient on 8/14

The front desk was nice and helpful, especially for a mom who was nervous getting Covid tests for her kids. The nurse was great (she took the nose swab) and the doc/PA was also absolutely wonderful. During confusing times and when I was unsure where to go for testing, this facility made it all so painless. Thank you!

Arizona 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.
