Pediatric urgent care doesn’t replace your usual pediatrician. Rather, it is a complement to the care your pediatrician provides. When you visit a clinic for emergency pediatric care, it is important for your physician to know about the visit and any diagnoses and treatments that were established.
In some cases, the urgent care clinic will recommend that you make a follow-up appointment with your pediatrician, so that he or she can further explore a diagnosis or begin a new kind of treatment. In other instances, the illness or injury will be adequately treated in the urgent care clinic, and your regular pediatrician only needs a record of the visit.
At Pediatrics After Hours, we take our commitment to being partners with your pediatrician seriously. We communicate all information about visits with pediatricians within 24 hours, including the results of lab tests and X-rays.
