Pediatric Urgent Care FAQs

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

    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 North Carolina?

    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 North Carolina?

    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 am a nurse who has spent my 22 year career working in a medical office/clinic, specifically family medicine, pediatrics and ob/gyn. I'd like to think that I am pretty knowledgeable with the internal workings of an office, and have experienced both well run and greatly mismanaged, even hostile work environments. When I say that my appointment today at AFC provided me with the best patient experience to date, I mean it wholeheartedly. From my first interaction with the kind front office staff, who didn't immediately turn me away, despite it being explained to me that their schedule was full. Instead they were professional and compassionate and sought out a provider to ask if it would be possible for me to be seen. That simple act of caring and effort they made for me spoke to the quality of this practice's employees. I was given as appointment and was explained to that I may need to wait an hour. After being turned away from my primary doctor's office and 3 other urgent care facilities already that day...and needing a medical exam, I was so grateful and had no issues with the wait. It was not 10 minutes of waiting before I was called back to the exam room to be seen, and was greeted again, with another professional and kind employee...the nurse who triaged me. She was friendly, skilled, patient, efficient and most of all, compassionate to my needs. I was then greeted by the PA, who I only waited minutes to see. And again, I'm listened to by another employee of AFC who provided me with such kindness, professionalism and exceptional and efficient care. My appointment ended at the checkout receptionist, and for my fourth professional, kind, compassionate and positive interaction with this office's staff. I can tell you that the owner/managers of AFC Fuquay Varina are stellar and it's quite obvious that their staff love their workplace, and it absolutely makes the level of patient care top-notch! I will absolutely choose AFC exclusively in the future for my family and my urgent medical needs! Thank you all...I am truly grateful and over-satisfied with the care provided to me today.

This is my favorite place to get care for my sick child. It is an urgent care, so you may have to wait just due to nature of the needs of others and what may need more urgent attention. BUT while you wait in the cleanest rooms ever, the nurses will check on you multiple times and your sick child will be comfortable. Then you will receive the best care with so much information! And the bedside manner is the best I have ever experienced. My kid loves it there. You are not rushed in any way. You leave with a wealth of information and confidence that your child has been attended to properly. The PA we saw on the last visit gave me more feedback and more care than my child's actual pediatrician. ALL of the staff is friendly, diligent, and helpful - from check in to check out.

I didn’t know a urgent care for kids was a thing so originally took my son to A different urgent care and had the worst possible experience. When I got home my neighbor told us about this location so I brought my son here right away. What a difference!! Beyond friendly staff helped and jump on it right away. They were extremely sympathetic to my sick son and worked quickly to get him the care needed. This place is beyond incredible. I’m a first time mom so I know I get overly scared but they were so reassuring. Amazing.

- Verified patient on 6/16

With my busy life (2 kids, 2 jobs and school) it’s hard to find somewhere to that can help “fast” while on my lunch break or whatever. Michelle was amazing at allowing me to email her info to speed up the visit. I saw the doctor and he was very nice, informative and honest. He explained why he thought it was the diagnosis he did, and it made sense to me. My family goes here but I never have. However, I now have an “emergency” place to go to.

We had THE BEST experience! We needed an urgent care later at night and were so happy to find this urgent care open so late. We were taken right back and taken care of right away. The staff and doctors were so friendly and were great with our daughter! The rooms were kid friendly (there were TVs and we watched Disney junior which definitely made my daughter feel more comfortable). We will definitely be going back if we ever need an urgent care visit!

- Verified patient on 5/28

I was very impressed with the staff. They took the time to explain everything to my son before they did any tests. This helped ease his anxiety. They even gave him an ice pop as we left. He was so thrilled with the experience he asked if we could go there instead of his regular pediatrician! I’d say they definitely won him over!

I went in with my 3 kids to get tested. The ladies at the front counter were so amazing. They knew I was juggling a lot with 3 kids and myself to get tested for Covid. Our male nurse who helped in the room was also great. He was so good with the kids and made the process easy.

- Verified patient on 2/22

Compassionate and thoughtful care by a truly top-notch staff. Our wait time was long, but everyone kept their composure and was extremely helpful. I trust them with my children’s health care, and appreciate having the option of taking them there for care when the pediatrician’s office is unavailable. Everyone was incredibly friendly and respectful.

The staff at WakeMed PM Pediatrics was amazing. I had to take my three-year-old daughter in to get stitches and they did a great job while making her comfortable and even had her laughing in between the procedures. I highly recommend this location to anyone needing immediate medical attention for their children.

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience today at WakeMed Children’s PM Pediatrics Urgent Care. There was no wait and the staff was very courteous and polite. It was very clean and my daughter loved all the colorful, fun art and decor. She was very comfortable being treated there.

I was in my car…and it’s pretty clean. Just kidding. The wait time was great compared to the 2 hour site down the street. And the two men working (may have been more people behind the scenes) were very, very nice and helpful! Thank you for all you do!

This was our first time visiting PM Pediatrics. I was very impressed at the friendliness of the staff - they were exceptional. They cared for my baby very tenderly. There was not a long wait and the doctor checked in on us multiple times. Highly recommend.

I was treated with kindness and efficiency and received the COVID test I wanted. The only downside was they don't accept Medicare but that was kind of humorous because they're a pediatric facility so they aren't asked to bill Medicare very often. :)

They were absolutely amazing and patient. The nurse who took care of my kids was absolutely amazing. She was friendly, kind, funny, just all awesome! I think her name was Jenny or Jennifer. Would recommend to anyone!

I have 6 kids so being able to telehealth for my daughter's ear infection was amazing. The doctor was patient with my technology issue and me and kind. Most importantly he was able to help my daughter.

Dr. Adam’s is our favorite. He is the perfect balance between professional, jovial, caring, personable and thorough! We prefer to go here rather than our pediatrician. It’s also more convenient location. Cleanliness is top notch .

North Carolina 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.
