Plan Your Visit

As you know, visiting the ER after-hours is bound to be the busiest time, so not only will you experience long wait times, but unforeseen billing is typical. Simply visit Pediatric After Hours for immediate care for your sick child; no appointment necessary! We’ll take care of your ill child from birth through age 21, and we always send a written follow-up to your regular pediatrician to maintain excellent continuity of care. On-site labs and x-rays allow us to diagnose a wide range of illnesses not normally handled by a regular doctor’s office.
