Pediatric Care Q&A

What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care at America First Urgent Care includes exceptional urgent care services for children of all ages. When time is of the essence, the skilled team provides comprehensive care for injuries, illnesses, and disease symptoms in an urgent care setting on the same day. 

While there’s no pediatrician on-site, the America First Urgent Care team sees children and teenagers for urgent care needs and refers them to pediatricians whenever needed.

Who benefits from same-day pediatric care?

  • Strep throat
  • Ear or eye infections
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Pain
  • Ear infections
  • COVID-19
  • Flu
  • Severe colds
  • Lacerations
  • Fractures
  • Other injuries
  • High or long-lasting fevers
  • Severe coughing

  • Animal bites
  • Non-life-threatening allergic reactions
  • Asthma attacks

If you’re unsure if your child needs an urgent, same-day medical evaluation, call the America First Urgent Care office and speak with a compassionate provider who happily assists you.

What happens during pediatric care visits?

During pediatric care visits to America First Urgent Care, a friendly specialist greets your child, weighs them, and checks their vital signs.

They review your child’s medical history, lifestyle, symptoms, and medications. An America First Urgent Care provider also completes a physical exam to look for signs of illnesses, injuries, and diseases. They evaluate your child’s throat, eyes, ears, neck, abdomen, limbs, breathing, reflexes, and heartbeat. 

Diagnostic testing they may suggest for your child includes:

  • Blood testing
  • Urine tests
  • Stool tests
  • Nasal or throat swabs
  • Saliva tests
  • Heart function testing
  • X-rays 
  • Ultrasound
  • Other imaging procedures

Depending on their symptoms and risk factors, children might need more than one diagnostic test to make a final diagnosis and develop an effective treatment.
