Urgent care is a type of medical care that treats conditions that come up suddenly but aren’t life-threatening emergencies. Because most parents seek pediatric medical care for minor injuries or non-emergent health concerns, urgent care offers timely medical treatment without the need to wait in an emergency room.
Rise & Shine Pediatrics offers walk-in and same-day urgent care appointments for infants, children, adolescents, teens, and young adults.
Rise & Shine Pediatrics offers urgent care for minor, nonlife-threatening conditions, such as:
If your child needs a sports physical or well-child checkup, it’s best to make an appointment for another time. Urgent care is for when treatment can’t wait until the next day.
During your child’s urgent care visit, Dr. Kumari:
If your child needs more specialized or emergency care, the Rise & Shine Pediatrics team coordinates their health care, so they get the best care possible.
Urgent care offers a place where you can relieve your mind and get quick treatment for minor concerns. However, there are times when an ER provides the best possible care for your child.
Conditions best treated in an ER include:
If your infant is younger than two months old and has a rectal temperature of 100.4℉ or more, it is essential that you seek emergency medical attention rather than urgent care.
