Walk-In Clinic Q & A

When should I use the walk-in clinic?

The team at Nevada Pediatric Specialists understands that your child might need medical attention unexpectedly or outside of regular office hours.

They offer a walk-in clinic, including Saturday hours, as well as an after-hours phone number, to ensure your child gets the medical attention they need. 

The team diagnoses and treats common childhood illnesses and injuries, including:

  • Sore throats
  • Strep throat
  • Ear infections 
  • Cold and flu
  • Bronchitis 
  • Rashes
  • Allergies
  • Asthma attacks (mild and moderate)
  • Sprains
  • Minor fractures

In most cases, you can skip the ER or urgent care and use the walk-in clinic at Nevada Pediatric Specialists instead. 

What diagnostic services are available at the walk-in clinic?

The team at Nevada Pediatric Specialists offers a wide range of diagnostic pediatric services at their walk-in clinic.

The team can diagnose and provide treatment for most childhood illnesses. With an on-site lab, they can test for:

  • Strep throat
  • Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)
  • Flu
  • H. pylori
  • Lead poisoning
  • Diabetes 
  • Urinary tract infections

They also have an in-office dispensary for most common prescription medications. You can pick up your child’s prescription without having to visit a pharmacy and wait in line. The team can send prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy, if necessary. 

If your child sustains a sports injury or hurts themselves while playing at home, the team can diagnose and treat most minor injuries. For example, they can provide stitches for a laceration or a splint for a sprained ankle or wrist. If your provider thinks that an X-ray is necessary, they can send you nearby, for example, to see their colleagues at Sunrise Hospital. 

Should I bring my child to the walk-in clinic or the emergency room?

The team at Nevada Pediatric Specialists can treat almost all common childhood injuries and illnesses. You can avoid costly and time-consuming emergency room visits in most instances. 

You should go to the ER if your child cannot breathe, has a widespread rash that covers their whole body, or a severely broken bone. If your child has a high fever, a cut or laceration that will not stop bleeding, or a head or spine injury, they require emergency attention, too. 

If you need rapid pediatric care for your child, you can use the walk-in clinic at Nevada Pediatric Specialists. You can also book a same-day appointment by calling or using the online scheduling tool.
