Your child is under the weather, so you call your pediatrician. They say, “Our next available appointment is in 12 business days.” What now?
If you struggle to get prompt care for your child, you are not alone. In 2022, the average time to get an appointment scheduled with a doctor was 26 days according to Merritt Hawkins’ survey of Physician Appointment Wait Times. The next time you need care quickly, try Solv. We have a network of quality urgent care facilities that offer same-day and next-day slot reservations for pediatric care.
What types of services do pediatric urgent care centers offer?
Pediatric urgent care centers offer more services than most parents are aware of. Some of these services may include:
- Diagnosing and treating illnesses and infections like the flu, colds, RSV, COVID, and more
- Managing injuries such as cuts, bruises, burns, and others
- Skin health issues including rashes, foot-hand-and mouth disease, and eczema
- Vaccinations and immunizations like Tdap, HPV, measles, COVID, and flu
- Annual, school, sports or camp physicals
- Development screenings
- In-house medical imaging including X-ray, and referrals for MRI/Cat Scan and Ultrasound when necessary
- Managing exacerbations of chronic conditions like asthma and diabetes
Bottom line, if your little one needs care, we’ve got your back.
If your child is experiencing any emergency or life-threatening conditions including severe asthma attacks, severe allergic reactions, or difficulty breathing, go to the closest ER or call 911.
Pediatric urgent care vs. typical urgent care
Unlike a typical urgent care center that sees patients of all ages, pediatric urgent care facilities offer doctors with specific skills to treat a sick or injured child. While normal urgent cares can certainly treat your child, pediatric urgent care offers a more focused approach for little ones. If your child is needing care, both pediatric urgent care and typical urgent care are great options.
