Is Urgent Care Right for Your Child?

Your mental to-do list is as follows: Pick up Cameron from school. Make him a snack. Do laundry. Cook dinner. Do the dishes. Take Cameron’s temperature because he isn’t feeling well. Go to an urgent care center.

Those last two tasks came out of nowhere, right?

You never plan on an illness or a trip to urgent care. It just happens, especially with children. It pushes its way into your to-do list and you have no choice but to tackle it. But how do you know if urgent care is the right solution for your child?

Your pediatrician’s office is closed

Urgent care typically has extended hours in comparison to pediatricians’ offices. For example, most GoHealth Urgent Care locations are open:

  • Mondays through Fridays 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Saturdays and Sundays 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

You can’t wait for an appointment

Urgent care is just that – urgent. Many times you don’t need to schedule an appointment, and your wait time will be minimal. At GoHealth Urgent Care, our wait times are usually 15 minutes or less.

Your child is suffering from one of the following:

  1. Allergies

  2. Asthma

  3. Common cold

  4. Earache

  5. Flu (Influenza)

  6. Fever

  7. Pneumonia

  8. Rash

  9. A sore throat or strep throat

  10. Stomachache, nausea

  11. Urinary tract infection

  12. Tick and insect bites

  13. Burn or abrasion

  14. Cut or laceration

  15. Fracture or sprain
