When should I take my child to an Urgent Care Center?

When your pediatrician’s office is closed and your child needs medical treatment, we offer the comfort of walk-in urgent care service with no appointment needed. With a typically lower co-pay than an emergency room, the Nicklaus Children’s Urgent Care Centers offer personalized and prompt care for babies, children, teens and young adults through 21 years old provided by board-certified pediatric physicians for minor injuries and illnesses.
 
If your child’s illness or injury is life-threatening, call 911 or proceed to the nearest hospital emergency room. Otherwise, here is a list of some conditions for which you may want to seek treatment in an urgent care setting:
  • Minor allergies
  • Minor asthma attacks
  • Minor burns
  • Bruises, cuts, wounds and lacerations (including stitches)
  • Colds and coughs
  • Minor dog/animal bites
  • Earaches and ear infections
  • Fever in children older than 2 months
  • Flu and sore throat (strep detection by DNA test available)
  • Mild stomach pain
  • Minor head injuries (without loss of consciousness)
  • Mononucleosis (often called “mono”)
  • Muscle strain injuries
  • Nausea
  • Pink eye
  • Rash
  • Sprains and fractures (splinting)
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vomiting, diarrhea and mild dehydration
