Urgent Care / Retail-Based Clinics
We understand that innovations are changing healthcare and while urgent care or retail-based clinics may offer convenience, we strongly believe that your primary care physician (PCP) offers the optimal standard of care for pediatric patients. These clinics may disrupt the coordination of your child’s care and do not offer the personal connection between patients and their doctors. The AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) does not recommend urgent care or retail-based clinics without providers that have expertise caring for children younger than 2 years old. Parents should consider using these clinics only at our recommendation. Please understand that if you choose to use these clinics, then contact us for answers to questions or concerns you may have about the care that was given, you will be required to make an appointment with one of our physicians. Our office is open 12 hours most weekdays and we also offer weekend hours. We hope you value the expertise of our pediatricians and continue to recognize us as your medical home.
