We are grateful this place was here while on our visit from California. Our son got a large splinter on his foot that we couldn’t remove. The staff were wonderful and helped get us all through what was a traumatic event for a 5 year old.

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 Illinois?

    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 Illinois?

    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 Illinois?

    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.

We have been coming here since they opened. Wait times are a little longer now due to many patients waiting for covid rapid tests and having to sterilize rooms in between but they let you wait in your car and get you into a room as fast as possible... I have never had to wait in the waiting room. Everyone is so friendly. Even on Thanksgiving it was very busy and the front desk had a lot going on but they kept everything moving and were very transparent with how many people were ahead of us and about how long it would be. Care team is excellent with my kids. Our primary doctor is a little far to go every time we have a cold or infection and KIDS urgent gets my kids feeling better quickly. Always able to get a last minute appointment.

My neurodivergent child had a hard time because the tv was on the entire time and distracted him which meant the treatment of his cut was surprising and therefore very unpleasant. The PA and nurse meant well, but when he moved in surprise the nurse held his hand down extremely firmly so the cut began bleeding again. Then after an hour of him being really upset, us trying to convince him to let them finish irrigating it, and a failed attempt to restrain him, they said he could just wash it with soap and water and we could be on our way. It would have saved a lot of heartache if he could have just used soap and water after the first irrigation tube. Anyway, this isn’t necessarily about this specific practice, but informed consent should apply to kids, too.

So it was super easy to go there. I brought myself and four of my kids. The hardest part was all the paperwork because we didn’t do it in advance and I had so many people. It was free but we were asked to give insurance info since we have insurance. There was only three other people there the whole time. Two before we got there and one while we were there. It did take about an hour but that was because I was filling out the paperwork for five people which took up most of the time. If you filled out your paperwork ahead of time you would be in and out in no time. The woman who did the testing was super nice, helpful and friendly. I felt like it was clean and safe.

Amie is excellent, light-handed, caring, professional, understanding, expert! MCT cares about their clients/ patients. It makes it’s services clients-friendly so it’s not too traumatic or very painful (especially on kids). MCT is compassionate to their clients, they value everyone’s feedback to better improve their services. It’s also expanding— now in Bartlett & Bloomidales. MCT thinks outside the box, practical & innovative. They will be around perpetually ( I can see it happening). I would never go anywhere else. Pls also consider the oral swab for the low risk, asymptotic, kids & just having testing as job requirement. Will you consider expanding to Schaumburg, IL & Elgin, IL areas— lotsa subdivisions & business establishments. We need your business card to give to friends. Perhaps make your signs BIGGER & MORE EYE-CATCHING— perhaps neon signs.

This place is trusted and true!! So wonderful! When our primary care office is closed or unable to take us we turn to PM Pediatrics and never regret it! The staff are so kind, patient, and understanding of families with small children. Stephanie, Medical Assistant, was so playful and engaging while getting our son’s intake completed. Bryan, X-Ray Tech, was patient and creative with our son while getting his chest X-ray. And lastly, Dr. Starck was so efficient, knowledgeable and her assessment skills were SPOT ON! Thank you PM Pediatric’s team! Thank you!!!

Dr Abraham expected immediate responses when I couldn’t think due to severe shaking. He listened to me only part of the time. I was told I had a UTI when there, but at no time on the call back regarding my blood tests was I told I had a kidney infection. A 2nd medication was added but my urologist said it was not needed. Only when I went to my primary care was I told the kidneys were infected. I was disappointed in my care for the first time at urgent care.

Everything was great but the forms took a while to fill out on my smartphone (one of the pages reloaded and I had to enter a bunch of data twice). The representative I spoke with on the phone said I didn’t need to prebook an appointment but I would prebook next time to save time/headache. Also would be nice if the system saved a parent’s info and IDs and let them just enter kids info for multiple kids (so parent doesn’t have to keep reentering parent’s info). Otherwise great!

It’s always a fantastic experience here! No matter what time of day, which staff or how busy they are, they are always amazing with my 2 small kids (6 months and 2 years). We have been here for coughs and X-rays and stitches and they have always been so helpful, engaged and friendly! Shout-out to Orlando, Bre, Shawna, Dr. Lulu, Dr. Nwosu and all of the staff there! SO grateful for this facility!

Please, your people are great and your system is efficient, but I always get digital results in like 5-8 minutes. Isn’t the rapid test ~15 minutes to process? I just wish there was an explanation for how fast I always get them back. I’m a little worried because I teach small kids and rely on weekly tests on top of masks and vaccination to keep them and me safe.

Confirmed my over the counter positive Covid test. The doctor or technician called at home in addition to sending an email with my results. He was very knowledgeable and reassuring. It was great to get fast results and directives about isolating because we routinely care for our grandkids and want to make sure we keep them safe.

Illinois 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.
