Your child isn’t feeling well? Walk on in.

Our pediatric providers specialize in children's acute/urgent needs.Your son wakes up complaining that his ear hurts. Your “mom radar” tells you that it’s an ear infection — he has had cold symptoms for a week. And you don’t want to wait until the end of the day to get him examined.

If this scenario happens at your house, just bring your child (ages birth – 21 years) to CentraCare Clinic’s Pediatric Walk-In Care. We are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday — no appointment necessary.

Our pediatric providers specialize in children’s acute/urgent needs such as:

  • Cough/cold
  • Ear pain
  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • Vomiting/diarrhea
  • Minor injuries/lacerations
  • Pinkeye
  • Rash
  • Stomach pain
  • Urinary symptoms

Patients with non-urgent or more chronic/complex problems will be asked to schedule an appointment with their primary care provider. Walk-In Care providers are not able to treat pediatric patients with depression, behavioral issues, gynecological concerns, wart treatment or patients who need physicals.

Get the most out of your time with the provider

Bring a list of:

  • Questions
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Current medications
  • Herbal or other alternative medicines or treatments used

Ask questions — especially if you don’t understand what the provider has told you.

After the appointment, call if you have questions or if your child’s symptoms get worse.

Our pediatric providers want the same thing you do — for your child to be healthy and happy.
