Is it an Emergency?

All parents have or will experience their child becoming ill after their pediatrician's office is closed. It may be an earache or an ankle sprain. With children, who knows? They are so unpredictable.

For conditions that are not life threatening but you can't wait until your pediatrician's office opens, consider an Urgent Care Center. The biggest advantage of the urgent care is avoiding the Emergency Rooms where waiting times can be long due to care being delivered to critically ill patients.
